In 2014 he and a team from Quiksilver Byron Bay took out the trophy. Now a regular golfer, Willsy is determined to defend the title and keep the perpetual trophy designed by Mark ‘Mono’ Stewart in his possession. Who knows?
Maybe we will see Danny when the Australia Seniors tour hits Byron in December.
Companies affiliated with the surf industry are encouraged to come out for a fun day with the BBB to take a shot at the trophy or the less-coveted Wooden Spoon trophy currently held by Parkes Surf Designs.
The 2014 event had teams from 10 local surf companies enter along with 115 local golfers and the club is anticipating a bigger turnout this year for a 4-ball Ambrose Golf Tournament at Byron Bay Golf Club, November 1, 2015 11:30 am – Shotgun Start
$ 30. Entry per person includes BBB Golf Ball and 18 holes of golf.
The 2015 BBB Surf Industry Golf Challenge and Charity Tournament is sponsored by Smith Optics this year and will benefit BBB junior programs and local families in need.
Last year over $2000 was distributed to the community as a result of this event.
This event continues to grow over the years and is turning into yet another Byron Bay social tradition – the overall event is open to the community and has prize packs for the top three foursomes regardless of affiliation with the surf industry.
Club President Jenny King said that the club appreciates the support of the local community for stepping up with sponsorship and raffle prizes. ‘Support this year has come from surfing, local builders/tradesmen, healthcare practitioners, restaurants and others’, says Jenny.
‘It is a truly community-wide support base. Please come down and join us for a great day – even if you don’t golf we will have lots of great prizes going in the raffle around 5pm.’
The golf day will be held on November 1 at the Byron club starting at 11:30am with a Shotgun start. The $30 entry per person includes Byron Bay Boardriders Golf Ball and 18 holes of golf.
Anyone can enter a foursome by calling the golf club and signing up on 6685 6977.
