Fun golf tournament for charity


FOR a fun day out and the opportunity to win some great prizes while supporting a great cause, the ILT Give Kids A Chance Charity Golf Tournament is the place to be on Sunday, March 25.

Hosted by the Invercargill Sunrise and Invercargill North Rotary clubs, the event had raised more than $87,000 since 2000, tournament co-organiser Stephen Ridden said.

This year’s beneficiary is the Give Kids A Chance charity.

Although about 60 players took part last year, there had been more than 100 players in previous years.

Mr Ridden, who had regularly taken part in the annual fun day, said it was always a great day out, whether players were seasoned golfers, a learner, or a first-timer.

“Not only does it give people the opportunity to try out the game and have heaps of fun, and for some to compete against friends and colleagues, it is also an opportunity to support Give Kids A Chance,” he said.

Held at the Invercargill Golf Club at Otatara, tee-off is at 11.30am.

“With a shotgun start, it means all the players will start at the same time, but on different holes.”

The ambrose tournament is open to all golfers. Teams of three can be mixed (men and women), but each team must have a handicapped golfer. Entry is $25 per team member. Teams can preregister or register on the day.

As well as prizes including golf bags and rounds at Jacks Point golf course, near Queenstown, there will be a lucky draw for all paid entries.
