The timber industry’s finest met on the golf course in October. The day was spectacular with Melbourne putting on glorious sunshine.
Sixty players took to the greens of the Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne for the annual Timber Industry Golf Day. With excellent prizes and good food the order of the day, thanks to partners and sponsors:
AB Phillips General Insurance
Lonza Wood Products
Britton Timbers P/L
Bowens Timber & Hardware
One Forty One
A convivial buffet opened the event, with chinos and shorts taking the place of plus fours. The rules were run through; teams would be given cards listing their handicap and starting hold then dispatched for a shotgun start at 12.30 pm. 15 teams had a great day!
Prizes were awarded to the first, second and third place teams. Also up for grabs were awards for nearest the pin, longest drive and a $40,000 ‘hole in one’ cash prize competition sponsored by AB Phillips.
A raffle with a $500 Drummond Golf gift voucher donated by Lonza Wood Protection as first prize was also on offer, with proceeds going to Reach as well as support for the Australian Terminal Cancer Foundation.
Come the hour, play commenced and amid a great deal of chatting, industry talk and joking, some rather fine golf was committed.
