Golf day to help Legacy

Last year more than 90 golfers teed off at the Grange Golf Club to support the fourth annual Legacy Charity Golf Day, and golf day organiser Phil Rath hopes to reach the 100 mark this Friday.

He is also hopeful the fifth running of the increasingly popular golf day will once again raise at least $5000 for Legacy.

He said Legacy was dedicated to the welfare of widows and dependants of Australian Defence Force personnel killed in war, peacekeeping or hazardous service, or who have died subsequently.

Across Australia Legacy assists more than 100,000 widows and 1900 children and people with a disability.

With about 950 widows and dependants enrolled in the local area (Helensburgh to Gerringong), Legacy services are continually being required to assist those in need.

‘‘We don’t get any funding so whatever we raise goes to widows and their dependants,’’ Mr Rath said.

The golf day will start with a breakfast in the clubhouse from 7am-7.45am, before a shotgun tee-off at 8am.

Two drinks will be provided on the course and golfers will be served steak with salad after playing the game.

There will also be a raffle with an accommodation package at The Esplanade at Batemans Bay as first prize. The $60 entry fee includes breakfast, lunch and green fees.
