THE Rotary Club of Muswellbrook’s fundraising efforts are on par with the best of them.

And, that trend is set to continue with the organisation’s annual Charity Golf Day at the Muswellbrook Golf Club on Sunday, July 30.

The four-person ambrose event, which starts from 9am for a 10am tee off, will aid Cystic Fibrosis (CF) research and other worthy groups.

Organiser Matthew Jeans said it was a great day for good causes, both local and national.

“We average 100 players each year, so we hoping to hit that mark again,” he explained.

“One-hundred per cent of the money raised goes to charity.

“For $40 per player, which includes two food and two drink vouchers, it is a terrific golfer’s day out.

“There is also a lucky door prize, worth $1000 in total, and raffles afterwards in the clubhouse, as well as nearest the pin and longest drive competitions. 

“Non-handicap golfers are definitely welcome, with a maximum [handicap] for men 18 and ladies 32.

“Two tee shots are required from all players in the team – and recorded on the score card.”

Mr Jeans said participants would be vying for more than $2000 worth of trophies and prizes. 

“We’ve got various local businesses supporting the event, which we’re extremely thankful for,” he admitted.

“The past five years we have raised $30,000.  

“So, we’re praying for good weather and a good field on July 30.”
