The Longest Day

Pictured – Lachie, Alex & Keith relaxing after their 72 holes. It took the a little over 12 hours to complete the challenge!

Over the weekend just gone 17 of our Members participated in the Longest Day, a Fundraiser for the Anti Cancer Council of Australia. We had a mixture of ages represented, starting at 12 and rounding out at 70 years old. Each of the 17 players completed all 72 holes in the one day playing a mixture of Stroke, Stableford and Ambrose formats. We had Geoff Thornthwaite and Richard West cook up a BBQ lunch for sustenance throughout the round, this was much appreciated by all golfers. The first ball was struck at 5.15am with the final putt holed a little before 7.30pm. The players through their fundraising efforts look likely to raise in excess of $10,000 toward the Anti Cancer Council, allowing both research and awareness to continue. Club Catalina will run this event on a yearly basis so if anyone would like to get involved next year feel free to contact Rod in the Golf Shop and we can start planning for a bigger and better 2023 event. Please see some of the photos taken on the day.
