Golfers to help kids’ charity

Looking forward to welcoming golfers to the course for the ILT Give Kids a Chance Charity Golf Tournament are Invercargill North Rotary Club president Robyn Jordan and event co-organiser Wayne Hamilton.

PEOPLE who attend the ILT Give Kids a Chance Charity Golf tournament can expect a fun day out, as well as the opportunity to win some great prizes.

The tournament will happen on March 13 and will be held at the Invercargill Golf Club in Otatara with a shotgun start at 11.30am.

It will be the 21st time the annual fundraiser has been run, hosted by the Invercargill Sunrise and Invercargill North Rotary clubs.

Co-organiser Wayne Hamilton said people should sign up quickly as only 100 people could attend the event due to the Red traffic light setting.

The tournament was open to all golfers, whether handicapped or non-handicapped.

“The three-person ambrose teams can be mixed [men and women], but each team must have a handicapped golfer,’’ he said.

It will cost team members $30 each to take part.

North Rotary club president Robyn Jordan said the club was excited to hold another event.

“It has been a very successful project over the years and it is one where the clubs have successfully worked together, time and time again.’’

Some of the proceeds raised will go towards Give Kids a Chance to support underprivileged children and youth in a range of ways, and Dictionaries in Schools.

There will be a chance to win prizes including return tickets to Stewart Island and three rounds of golf at Jack’s Point near Queenstown.

Refreshments will be on sale throughout the day as well as a barbecue at the end.
