Teeing off for fun and fundraising

Fun and fundraising was par for the course last week as golfers took to the fairways at Rowes Bay Golf Club for the fourth annual Cowboys Community Foundation Charity Golf Day, presented by Downer Defence.

Battling heatwave conditions, more than 20 teams turned out to compete for the perpetual trophy, eventually claimed by The Rural Shop.com ahead of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys coaching team on a countback.

For those who missed out on top honours there were plenty of chances to win, with the event packed full of novelty on-course activities, raffles and competitions featuring prizes generously donated by our dedicated supporters.

With a golden opportunity to win $25,000 in the Pickles Hole in One Challenge, players teed off with heightened expectations on the 13th hole – while the cash prize didn’t go off, there were plenty of spirited attempts!

A Q&A with Cowboy Coen Hess and NRLW dual-premiership winner Romy Teitzel was one of the highlights of the clubhouse presentations that saw winners crowned and stomachs filled over a delectable BBQ lunch, provided by NRL Cowboys House.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the day!
