The inaugural Corporate Golf Day for Breast Cancer Care WA was a great success both on and off the course, raising over $34,000 for West Australians facing breast cancer.
Held at Joondalup Resort on Tuesday 18 May 2021, the event saw a full field of 36 teams of 4 make every swing count in an Ambrose style event. Whilst the weather threatened, even providing an ominous soundtrack for a while, it held off for a beautiful day of golf for some and for others it was more about enjoying an afternoon out of the office.
There were plenty of laughs and some good-natured rivalry with special fundraising holes like the “Fastest Tee Off,” “Longest Marshmallow Drive,” and regular favourites – Nearest to the Pin and Longest Drive. The day was capped off with a sundowner looking out over the lake and course, including a silent and live auction.
Congratulations to the following teams and indivduals who took out the prizes on the day:
- Longest Drive (Dune 5) – Chris, Commonwealth Bank
- Longest Drive (Quarry 8) – Andrew, Site Skills Training
- Nearest to the Pin(Quarry 3) – Andrew, Site Skills Training
