Golfers support charity events

The Corryong Golf Club hosted the Parkinson’s Charity Golf Day and Lunch last Wednesday, combining it with the Irema Brown Memorial Shield, aiming to raise funds for ongoing research into Parkinson’s disease. The nine-hole mixed 4BBB tournament saw 28 participants, with Tameeka Mulquinney and Sol Webb from Holbrook clinching victory with 23 Stableford points, edging out Liz Plunkett and Skye Trescowthick, also from Holbrook, on a countback.

Caryn Brown, representing the Brown family, presented the awards in memory of Irma. The event welcomed players from Holbrook and visitors from Albury Commercial, Tumut, and Welaregang. Afterwards, an informative session was delivered by Senior Constable Leah LaFrank from Corryong Police, covering local policing areas, personnel, gun safety, and cyber safety.

The event featured a generous array of raffle donations from local businesses and individuals, adding excitement to the day. Special thanks were extended to Caryn Brown for organizing donations and to various individuals for their contributions. The day concluded with a successful fundraising effort, with a cheque for $2606.00 to be forwarded to Parkinson’s Research Australia.

Meanwhile, the Graziers Cup two-person ambrose event held at Welaregang saw an impressive turnout of 19 teams, with Gordon and Mirasol Webb emerging victorious. Sponsors played a crucial role in making the event possible, and appreciation was extended to all involved in organizing and supporting the tournament.

Looking ahead, upcoming events at the Corryong Golf Club include Stableford and Medal competitions in May, offering golf enthusiasts ample opportunities to participate in friendly competitions.
