The KARI 2018 Community Golf Day was held on the 18th of November at the Camden Lakeside Golf Club in Gledswood Hills.
Despite poor weather conditions the day before, as well as a strong fog settling over the golf course the morning of, the day was due to go ahead, making for some happy golfers.
With over 90 golfers attending, the day was sure to be a success, regardless of the weather conditions. With a group breakfast in the morning at an eye-watering 7am start, the teams were ready to get on the green at 8am. By the time the golfing commenced, the clouds cleared and the sun came out over the golf course, allowing for perfect conditions for a great day of golf.
KARI are thankful for the amount of support that was shown to the organisation.
It was a great opportunity for the community to learn more about KARI and the programs that we run through our Community Programs teams.
The golf finished at 12pm, which allowed the exhausted teams to come back and relax with a delicious lunch. Winners were also announced at the lunch, with $200 and $100 vouchers to Drummonds Golf Shop.
Other awards were given, such as the longest drive for both men and women. Their prizes were a set of golf balls and a golf umbrella so they could keep dry on the green.
It is events like this that allow KARI to strengthen its bond with the Indigenous Community, allowing us to celebrate Indigenous Culture and celebrate success in the sporting arena.
This day was a fantastic day for those who attended. If you missed out on the chance to attend this years golf day, keep an eye out on our Facebook page for posts regarding next years Golf Day. We hope to see you there.
