The event would not be possible without the enormous sponsorship and support we receive each year for our many generous suppliers, customers and the greater North Coast community.
We would like to thank all the sponsors, players, golf club staff, volunteers and everyone involved that continue to support the event which enables us all to make the lives of those in the community less fortunate than ourselves a little better.
Since the inception of the golf day 44 years ago we have raised in excess of $400,000 which has all been returned into the north coast community.
