Now in its 12th year, the massive event continues to grow in popularity and prizes.
The four-person Ambrose competition will be held on Sunday, January 12, at the Tocumwal Golf Club.
Thanks to generous local and interstate sponsorship, a total of almost $200,000 has been raised for the Tocumwal Public School, Sacred Heart and a different community organisation each year.
Sacred Heart principal Pat Boake said ‘‘Sacred Heart is very grateful for this excellent fundraiser’’.
‘‘Started by our parent body years ago, it was so successful that in future years other schools and town groups were included in the benefits.’’
Tocumwal Public School principal Darren White said the money his school received from the day ‘‘goes directly into our P&C account’’.
‘‘From here we are able to purchase goods and services for the children of our school,’’ he said.
Tocumwal Pre-School director Jess Williams said the popular charity golf day allowed the facility to purchase equipment and make improvements to benefit the students.
‘‘The yearly charity golf day allows for the opportunity to benefit the children and service our amazing community,’’ she said.
‘‘Over the years the money and donations collected from the charity golf day have allowed for the pre-school to make vast improvements to both the indoor and outdoor environments of our service.
‘‘Many thanks go to the Tocumwal Golf Club and the many hands of volunteers who make this event such a success.
‘‘Without the amazing work of such people in our community, our educational institution wouldn’t be able to make such vast improvements.’’
Keen golfers of all ages and abilities will flock to the club on the morning of January 12 to have a swing on the pristine Tocumwal fairways.
Registration is at 10.30am followed by a barbecue from 11am to noon before tee-off on Tocumwal’s superbly presented 36-hole course.
Golfers will vie for a treasure trove of prizes in both handicapped and non-handicapped sections.
Social or occasional golfers are welcome to participate.
Following play, golfers and guests will head to the club for a delicious two-course dinner and complementary quality red and white wines from DeBortoli Wines.
Everyone will be a winner on the night, with endless player prizes, raffles, silent auction items, memorabilia and white goods up for grabs.
Entry fee is $75 per golfer, but for juniors it is $50 or $10 for golf only.
The cost to attend the dinner only is $40 per person.
