Daddo Charity Golf Day

Daddo Charity Golf Day 2016 Hit me with your best shot A mix of golf enthusiasts and beginners joined Independence Australia for its annual Daddo Charity Golf Day on Friday, 25 November 2016. On arrival at Fingal’s world-class golf course, Moonah Links on the stunning Mornington Peninsula, 140 players received a gift bag filled with treats from our generous sponsors, as well as a polo shirt provided by Neodigital. 2016 marked 12 years since the Daddo Charity Golf Day began, making it one of Australia’s longestrunning and largest charity golf events. As in past events, players on both the Open and Legends courses were eligible to enter two competitions; ‘Nearest to the Pin’ and the popular ‘Hole in One,’ sponsored by Advance Careers, where players could win a Jeep Cherokee. While most players accepted the challenge, unfortunately no one drove home in the new wheels. Once play concluded, players headed to the clubhouse to enjoy a few drinks and a barbeque dinner before the best players and teams were awarded their prizes. The famous monster raffle was then drawn, gifting 26 lucky players a prize donated by our generous sponsors. The event raised ,000 through ticket sales and sponsorship, to help fund Independence Australia’s psychology and counselling programs, which receive little or no government funding. Thank you Independence Australia would like to extend a sincere thank you to all those who attended the 2016 Daddo Charity Golf Day. We would also like to thank our event day supporters and the Daddo family for their constant support. Plans are now underway for the 2017 Daddo Charity Golf Day. We look forward to seeing you all then! 6 Inform
