Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre charity day

The Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre charity day is a very important day in our golf calendar. We are all touched in some way by cancer which is a hideous disease. The golf club puts a lot of effort into making this charity day as successful as possible.

We thank everyone for participating in the event. We have had a wonderful turn-up this year with player numbers surpassing previous years. The auction alone, which is part of the fun raised $1,675. We thank all participants and sponsors for their generous donations which will go towards buying the very much needed medical equipment for the Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre. The total amount raised this year is just over $12,000.

The Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre expressed how much they appreciate our donation. Last year’s donation went towards a much-needed medical grade oven. The oven is used for moulding head and neck masks, for head and neck cancer patients to ware during radiation treatment.

The hole-in-one Holden car prize was very close to being won this year. Bob Bishop hit the flag but finished a metre or two away. Garry DeBanke’s tee shot rolled past the hole missing it by only a few millimetres which gave Blanch Voysey, the hole-in-one observer, heart flutters. However, the nearest the pin was taken out by Mark Skinner, congratulations Mark and commiserations for not winning the car.

The golf game was a two-person Ambrose. The overall winners are Nicola Ryan (31) and Phil Ryan (9) from Links Shell Cove with a net 59 strokes. The full results for the charity day are shown on our website under the “Golf” / “Results” section.
