Torch charity golf day a great success!

The amazing team at Torch Publishing have held their third annual Charity Golf event, in partnership with the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.

The 4 Ball Ambrose tournament, held on Friday 25 October at the Georges River Golf Course, brought together local community, business and sporting personalities to raise much needed funds for world-class cancer research.

Players of all golf handicaps produced a wonderful spectacle, putting on show their eagles, chip shots, backspins, albatrosses, birdies, and bogies!

Players were even occasionally given a helping hand by pro-golfer Oliver Neave.

Neave, who had very sadly lost his friend to cancer only weeks prior to the charity golf day, dedicated his time on the day to providing each team with a drive up the fairway for a donation (as an advantage to their game).

Players were also able to enter a putting competition with Neave to raise some extra funds for cancer research.

As well as a very successful and eventful game, the golf day included lunch, a raffle and a fantastic auction with some great prizes up for grabs!

This generous event has contributed another $20,000 to the fight against cancer, and every dollar will be used to help Australian researchers find better treatments and cures for this devastating disease.
