It’s time to round up your woods, irons, sand wedges and putters, and practise your swing for this Sunday’s Charity Golf Day for the Byron Bay Central Hospital Auxiliary.

Every year, the Auxiliary receives a wish list to purchase a diverse variety of equipment which unfortunately is not provided by either the state or federal government, and cannot be sourced by any means other than through fundraising activities undertaken by the volunteer group.

This is an annual event held by the Auxiliary and sponsored by many local businesses to which the Auxiliary is extremely grateful.

This event will be a four-person Ambrose with a 12pm shotgun start.

Entries are $40 for members and $50 for visitors. For bookings call the Pro Shop on 6685 6977 or book online at: byronbaygolfclub.com.au.
