The Shakespear Open Sanctuary Society (SOSSI) was the winner on the day, after an excellent day’s golf saw $12,716 raised for its new interpretation plan.
The event was held on November 3 at Gulf Harbour Country Club (HM November 1).
Twenty-five teams – 100 golfers in total – took part. A team that played to honour the memory of founding SOSSI chair Allan Parker, who died in 2016, won the tournament.
A new car was put up as a prize for a hole in one on the eighth hole, but no-one was able to achieve this challenging feat.
Current SOSSI chair Peter Jackson says the funds raised will be a big help in projects aimed at improving visitor experience at the sanctuary.
“But of equal value to SOSSI was the very enthusiastic endorsement of the sanctuary by the Gulf Harbour Golf Club and local businesses and participants,” he says.
