Local charity Youth In Transition is organising its second Golf Fore Life Charity Tournament and is looking for teams and sponsors to join them for a fun day on the green at Gulf Harbour Country Club.
The event is scheduled to take place on October 28, if Auckland is in Alert Level 1,but also has a backup date available.
Teams of three can sign up for the charity tournament, which involves playing 18 holes, with on-course activities and competitions. A pre-game barbecue and post-game buffet are included in the entry fee of $595 per team.
An auction follows, with signed sports items including All Blacks jerseys, and Ryan Fox gloves and cap, plus a day’s fishing charter for four and an overnight stay for four at Wairakei Golf Course & Sanctuary.
Youth In Transition has been very successful at supporting young people in the area since 2014.
Caitlin Watson is helping to organise the event. She says the demand for Youth in Transition’s mental health services is always high, but never higher than now, with young people finding the lockdowns and restrictions particularly challenging.
“They have reached a point where they are having to turn many young people away due to a lack of resources,” she says.
The organisation is also looking for sponsors for the golf tournament.
