The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter will host its annual Corporate Charity Golf Day on Friday November 15 at Ballina Sports & Golf Club.

Major sponsor Yellow Pages has come on board once again to support the charity golf day in which teams of four will play an ambrose competition over 18 holes.

There will be two tee-off times in 2013, being 7am and 1pm, with up to 32 teams per tee-off.

The Yellow Pages Corporate Charity Golf Day is an opportunity to network with clients and business associates in a social setting while fundraising for Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

Several holes will have unique challenges for the day including a raft chip in to the water on the fourth, a sporting hole in which golfers exchange their clubs for bats, racquets and footballs and a chance to fly a helicopter (simulator) while waiting for your putt.

Presentations will take place on the 19th hole, in the golf club, at 6pm with the results calculated over the two tee-off times.

Blackburn Prior has donated the prize for nearest to the pin on one of the course’s par threes and there are lots of prizes up for grabs for placing teams, including last place. Raffles and auctions will take place during the day with prizes donated by Cummings Electrical & Lifestyle Centres.

Places are still available for teams on both tee-off times for $200 per team and can be booked by calling 6627 444 or emailing [email protected]
