On 6 September 2016, we held our annual ACRF Charity Golf Day at the New South Wales Golf Club in La Perouse.
The NSW Golf Course, situated on the northern headland of historic Botany Bay, is flanked by the cliffs of Henry Head and the prominent headland of Cape Banks.
It has been written that golf had its origins on unique seascapes similar to that of the NSW Golf Club. A course that has been the home of the Australian Open, and counted amongst its members golfing greats such as Greg Norman.
With its undulating fairways and small greens, this course calls for great skill in shot making especially when the sea breezes blow. Lucky for our players, it was a beautifully calm day that gave everyone a chance to participate in some friendly competition for cancer research.
A mix of players with varying golf experience and backgrounds stepped out on the greens for a three-four ball Ambrose, including the Chair of ACRF’s Board Mr Tom Dery, playing with his son Robbie Dery from oOh! Media and ACRF supporters from VAMP and RMS. We even had a pro golfer in our midst, Ms. Annabel Rolley!
We also welcomed very special guests, Dr Darren Saunders and Dr Nigel Turner who are leading Australian cancer researchers at the University of New South Wales.
Congratulations to the winning team this year: Ben, Simon, Tony and Annabel. They took home the team cup, and Annabel won the trophies for longest drive and nearest to pin.
Thank you to everyone who took part. And a special thank you to our Silver Sponsor H&R Block Limited and Drinks Cart Sponsor KSP Stoneloc Flooring for their generous support.
We hope to see you all again next year! Click here to check out the photos from the day.
