Clear skies and the well-watered, lush greens at Gainsborough Greens greeted a record field of 28 teams of golfers for the 10th Annual Corporate Golf Day last Friday, 20 October. What a fantastic day filled with a warm sense of community spirit, excitement and fun! Thank you to everyone who came and along and contributed to an outstandingly successful event … from our sponsors and golfers to our magnificent volunteer team, to Michelle Bristow and the staff at Gainsborough Greens, and former Australian Cricket Team Vice Captain Ian Healy who teed off for teams on the 1st hole.
With plenty of on-course games and challenges at the ready, players enjoyed a relaxing round of golf before meeting at the 19th hole to be entertained by talented College songstresses Hannah and Mckeira, before a buffet dinner, prize presentation and auction. Keep an eye out on the College facebook page for the photo gallery.
