Builders triumph on a day for hackers and choppers

THE Wests Entertainment Group Westpac Rescue Helicopter Charity Golf Day raised plenty of fun and about $9000 at the Longyard Golf Club last Friday.

The golf day attracted around 34 teams to the three-player ambrose format wheer the winning team was Single Builders.

Dave MacRae, Beau Thomas and  Graeme Pennell carded a fine 53 and 2/3 to beat the Telstra Business Centre team of Chris Ash, John Carey and Anthony Dunst by 2/3 with Bally’s Bashers (Steve Ball, Danyle Elseley and Mick Deverell) third with 54 and 1/2.

Weather was fine too, said organiser Barry Walton, who stood guard at the $10,000 Hole-In-One at the 13th.

“Most everyone seemed to enjoy themselves,”  Walton said after being caged in a protective cart from some of the errant tee shots.

Closest there was Mick Carey, who rolled one up to just  100cm short.

Mick’s daughter, Donna, won the ladies’ long drive and Jamie Thompson won the men’s long drive.

Newcastle’s Dennis Taylor won the main raffle which was a four person package of golf and accommodation to The Ibis at Port Stephens and the Nelson’s Bay Golf Club.

Around $9000 was raised on the day for the WRHS which conducts its main golf day on Monday, May 13 at the Tamworth Golf Club. Capital Body Works is major sponsor of that gigantic golf day.
