South Burnett golfers support worthy causes

SC&SB District Golf - Tuesday, May 05, 2015

It was fantastic to see the support for the Wondai Firies as people from far and wide came together on Saturday for the 7th Annual Firies Charity Golf Day to raise funds for the "RACQ Careflight Helicopter" and "Bike For Burns" charities.

Firies, golfers and wannabe golfers from Brisbane, Caboolture, Dalby, Bell and South Burnett travelled to Wondai Golf Club to support such worthy charities. Despite heavy rains and flooding the day before 70 players braved damp conditions to show their support.

Donations and sponsors were in abundance for the day. The major sponsor, Mick Guse Transport, and many local businesses were instrumental in providing much-needed support for the event. The numerous golf and novelty prizes were gratefully accepted by all but, all would agree the real winners on the day were the "RACQ Careflight Helicopter" and "Bike for Burns" charities. $3600 was raised on the day.

Raffle winners were:

  • 1st prize - C Wood
  • 2nd prize - J Mears
  • 3rd prize - B Seymour.

C Grade was held at Kilkivan.  Kingaroy C Grade golfers were able to complete the hat trick.  Their total score of 690 led to a very convincing win,  with the next closest result to this being Goomeri (720).  Trevor Turner (Kingaroy) was crowned C Grade champion, cruising to a 7 stroke victory with a sensational 79 (total of 167).  Tied as runner ups were Mike Field (Nananago) and William Paterson (Kingaroy) with 174 total.
