Golf just got good!

We are pleased to introduce our two sponsors for the day mGage and Enarpee. Our Golf Day is only two weeks ago now and our teams are booked and ready to go, and our sponsors are making this event extra special with their involvement .

mGage have kindly provided the awards for both the Longest Drive and Nearest the Pin competitions, and have organised the golf balls that will be given to our players at the start of the day in their survival packs, to help the day get started with a swing!

Enarpee will be in charge of the refreshments buggy this year, making sure our players have chilled drinks and snacks to keep them going as they make their way across the course.

We would like to thank both our sponsors for their support with this day, and hope that everyone has a good time on the green.
