What an amazing day we had on Sunday, magic weather, a great turnout with 20 teams playing & the course in sensational order thanks to all the work by Damon & his team during the morning. Thanks so much to them for taking the time to roll the greens, rake the bunkers & redo the holes for us on a Sunday, we really appreciate it. Then to top it all off Peter Hitchener was a special guest to help with presentations after playing 9 holes with Angie Waters who invited him along for the day. It was quite a treat to have a celebrity amongst us for the day!
The event would not have been possible without the help & support from many people who helped on the day or prior to the event : Shane Johnson, Margaret Carroll, Barbara Bright, Judy & Jim Hunter, Brian Munn, Ken Pridgett, Phil Simmons, Neil Fredricson, Barbara & John Sargent, Lucy Bond, Milica Cole, Joan Spence, Angie Waters, Kay Sims & Maggie McGeever. Also a huge thanks to the following organisations & people who donated some incredible prizes for the day: Peninsula Hot Springs, Naturally Well Chiropractor, Crittenden Estate Winery, Endota Spa Red Hill, The Atrium Restaurant, Marengo Redoubt Winery, Bendigo Bank (Rye & Dromana Branches), Paul Louey Chinese Restaurant, L’Aqua Restaurant, Carpet Caretakers, Provincia, Searoad Ferries, Kim & Gordon Reynolds, Lucy Bond, Neil & Linda Fredricson.
