Charity golf tournament swings into 20th year

FOR a fun day out and the opportunity to win prizes while supporting a great cause, the ILT
20th Anniversary Give Kids A Chance Charity Golf Tournament is the place to be on Sunday, November 15.

Originally planned to be held earlier this year, the popular event had to be postponed to next month due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

Hosted by the Invercargill Sunrise and Invercargill North Rotary clubs, this year marked the 20th anniversary of the charity event.

Funds raised in the past were used for various Rotary projects including the Dictionary in Schools for Year 4 pupils, Rotary Youth Exchange, sponsoring children to attend the
Secondary Student Science Forum in Auckland, Rotary Youth Leadership Programmes, the Family Day In The Park at Queens Park, held earlier this year, and Give Kids a Chance, one of the organisers Tony Chadderton said.

It was always a great day out, whether players were seasoned golfers, learners, or first-timers, Mr Chadderton said.

Held at the Invercargill Golf Club in Otatara, tee-off would be at 11.30am with a ‘‘shotgun start’’, which meant all players would start at the same time, but on different holes.

The ambrose tournament was open to all golfers. Teams of three could be mixed (men and women), but each team must have a golfer with a handicap.

Entry was $25 per team member, and teams could pre-register or register on the day.

As well as the major prize of a round of golf at Jack’s Point, near Queenstown, and other prizes, there would also be a special player draw for a watch and food hamper.
