Three community organisations will benefit when Goulburn’s Mayoral Charity Golf Day returns for 2022.

Following a two-year absence due to COVID-19, this year’s Holcim Mayoral Charity Golf Day will tee off on Friday, 25 November, at the Goulburn Golf Club.

Funds raised will assist Goulburn’s Riding for the Disabled Association, Can Assist and the Peanuts Wellbeing Sanctuary.

Goulburn Mulwaree Mayor Peter Walker is hopeful of a strong turnout this year.

“Like many things over the past two years, the golf day has been impacted by COVID-19, which has
stopped us from raising money for these very worthy charities,” Councillor Walker said.

“However, we are back this year, and hopefully we can have a full house at the Goulburn Golf Club in
November and present some funds to these beneficiaries.”

The three beneficiaries were previously selected for the 2021 event and have been carried over.

Riding for the Disabled Goulburn is a volunteer organisation providing equine-assisted activities for people with disabilities to develop and enhance their abilities.

Can Assist Goulburn and District provides financial assistance to people who are undergoing cancer treatment, to help with travel, accommodation and medical costs.

The Peanuts Wellbeing Sanctuary aims to break the cycle of abuse for children and animals by pairing its rescued animals with children from dysfunctional, neglected and abusive backgrounds to nurture and aid in the understanding of empathy and compassion towards others.

“I am really looking forward to raising significant funds for our beneficiaries, while providing what should be a fun day on the course for players,” Cr Walker said.

“I’d again like to thank our major sponsor, Holcim, without whom we simply couldn’t run the golf day.

“We have also had a large number of local businesses come on board to provide sponsorship, which is fantastic.”

The four-person Ambrose event over 18 holes has regularly attracted many participants in the past, and nominations for teams are expected to open in late September, with an entry fee of $160 for a team.

Information about the event, including nomination forms, will be on Goulburn Mulwaree Council’s website and Facebook in coming weeks.
