A golf tournament at the Warkworth Golf Course raised $3600 for Mahurangi Bush Fire Aid this month.

More than $450 was raised by Dylan Lewis, 11, who took bets that senior golfers couldn’t beat him on hole 16.

Murray Chapman said the funds would be distributed to those who needed it most in Australia via the Lions Club.

Meanwhile, the Barfoot and Thompson women’s pro am scheduled in Warkworth on March 16 is already fully subscribed with 28 teams of 3 amateurs and a pro.

Professional golfers attending on the day including defending champion Harry Bateman as well as Mark Brown, Cameron Jones and Kieran Muir.
