ILT Liqourland Charity Tournament
If you’d been thinking about entering the ILT Liqourland Charity Tournament, there’s some great news – it’s been rescheduled to Wednesday 24 February, and entries are being taken now.
The tournament will raise funds for the Hawthorndale Care Village; an important cause and one that will no doubt benefit many, many Southlanders in future.
The ILT Liqourland Charity Tournament will be played at Queens Park and is a 4BBB format, open to any combination of pairs – one member of the pair may be a golfer without a current handicap.
So if you want a fun day out, and to raise money for a good cause, get involved – contact Golf Southland to enter; 03 931 0082 or email [email protected].
The tournament prize giving will be followed by Golf Southland’s Golfer of the Year presentations, which will include Southland Men’s, Ladies and Junior Golfer of the Year awards, as well as the Most Improved Junior award.
