BHGC Community Golf DayPublished on 16th May 2023 in Guest Only
The 10th annual Community Golf Day will be held on Sunday 6th August 2023.
Bookings open on Friday 23rd June.
The Club’s commitment to being a good community citizen shines through its efforts to support the local primary school through hosting a dedicated golf day and donating the main raffle prize.
Each year, locals enjoy a round of golf on mainland Australia’s highest rated public access course while raising funds for the Barwon Heads Primary School.
The generosity of golf day participants and raffle ticket buyers raises funds that provide additional resources for the primary school, benefiting the students directly. The day also fosters a strong bond between the golf club, school and local families.
Date: Sunday 6th August 2023.
Time: 12.45pm for a 1.00pm shotgun start.
Green Fees: $75 per player
All green fees go to the Barwon Heads Primary School.
