The South Lakes Golf Club held a special event on Wednesday, October 14, raising much-needed funds for the Breast Cancer Network Australia and Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia.

The club usually holds these events separately, however considering COVID-19 restrictions, they combined the days to continue to support both the Breast Cancer Network and Prostate Cancer Foundation.

For the record, 109 men and 69 women played in the competition on the day, and they raised $3179.

Funds will be shared equally between Breast Cancer Network and Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Teams of four were dressed up in their Pink or Blue and the focus was on having fun and raising money for two very worthy causes.

Many local businesses donated prizes for a raffle, which was held during the subsequent lunch and was well patronised.

The whole day was well run and backed by the hard work of various committees and volunteers which made for a fun event, while raising money for two very worthy causes.

South Lakes is very much community based and this type of event highlights the spirit of the club.

General Manager of South Lakes Golf Club Matt Rogerson said the club prides itself on its community spirit and this was further evidence.

"All funds raised on the day will be equally donated to the Breast Cancer Network Australia and Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia," Matt said.

"It was a blue ball and pink ball team event and there were numerous prizes throughout the day, which added to the excitement.

"There were the Best Dressed Team for the women and individual men's and women's stableford daily competition."

The first people off the tee started at at 8am and were joined by following groups until mid-morning, so that everyone could finish about 12.30pm for lunch in the club house.

"People were encouraged to dress up in pink and blue outfits. It was an hilarious time and a typical fun event at the club," Matt said.
