Golf Day hits new levels
A relaxed day of golf and fundraising in paradise – the second annual Cowboys Community Foundation Golf Day delivered!
The Cowboys Community Foundation Golf Day has forged its place on the must-do event calendar, marking its second year with a record sell-out and a star-studded field.
From the time registrations were released, support for the event was strong, with 24 teams teeing off early at picturesque Rowes Bay Golf Club in Townsville today, thanks to presenting partner Telstra.
The course was packed with novelty activations and opportunities to get behind the cause – supporting the life-changing programs of the Foundation, including NRL Cowboys House.
Also spotted perfecting their drives in the 18-hole Ambrose were two North Queensland Toyota Cowboys teams, which included incoming head coach Todd Payten, current players Michael Morgan, Josh McGuire and Esan Marsters, plus recently-retired Cowboys life member Gavin Cooper.
Back in the clubhouse, Global Welding Supplies were declared winners of the perpetual trophy, with Humes coming in second and Pacific Islands International placing third, while Michael Morgan bagged a brilliant Hamilton Island Golf Club experience in the auctions, thanks to Townsville Helicopters and Zeph Air.
Teams travelled from as far as Brisbane to participate, which event organiser Sarah Jones said reflected the keen interest in the event.
“Planning this year’s charity golf day was more challenging in that we weren’t sure where COVID-19 restrictions and event attendance would be by late October,” Ms Jones said.
“However, our supporters have voted with their feet and made this an amazing day that will set the bar high for next year.
“The energy and enthusiasm on the course was matched by their generosity and we thank everyone involved for their fantastic support.”
