Dust off the clubs for the AFP Legacy Golf Day challenge

If you need some convincing about picking up the clubs for a spot of weekday golf at one of Canberra’s best courses, then hopefully the chance to win a car while raising funds for AFP Legacy is all it takes.

Throw in a BBQ breakfast, lunch and supper, on course drinks, raffles and gather your best mates for a team, and you have next Thursday sorted!

The four-person Ambrose competition kicks off on Thursday, October 18 at Federal Golf Club in two time-slots, and is being supported by Police Bank all in the name of a charity fundraiser for AFP Legacy.

This year Canberra golfers have the chance to win a $25,000 car – you only need to make a hole in one -Simple!

Canberra’s annual fundraising golf day comes hot on the heels of the second annual AFP Legacy FNQ Charity Golf Tournament, held at the Half Moon Bay Golf Course in Yorkeys Knob, Cairns last month, proudly organised and hosted by Cairns AFP members.

AFP Legacy President Shane McLennan said while he can’t promise the same hot and steamy weather in Canberra as they had in Cairns, bragging rights are definitely up for grabs.

“The Cairns day was a huge success raising $11,500 for AFP Legacy – a magnificent $3000 increase on last year’s inaugural event total,” Shane said.

Designed as an invitational for Cairns AFP stakeholders, the numbers increased dramatically after last year’s inaugural event with the general aviation sector from Cairns providing huge support for the day sponsoring holes and buying up raffles tickets for a range of donated prizes.

“The event was strongly supported by Queensland Police Service colleagues, with Assistant Commissioner Paul Taylor fielding a team, which included the Speaker of the House in the Queensland Legislative Assembly, Curtis Pitt MP.  “In total, 76 players enjoyed the tropical Cairns weather finishing with a gourmet burger and cold beverages,” Shane said.

“They certainly know how to dig deep in the far north to make the day such a huge success and support AFP Legacy, so let’s hope their Canberra counterparts can match their generosity.”

The Canberra charity golf day is being held just two days before this year’s AFP Legacy Ball at the QT Canberra on 20 October.

New tickets have been released and the ballroom extended with expectations of a great night with a specialty Gin & Vodka Bar, entertainment by Chicago Charles, an extensive silent auction plus a raffle, where prizes in excess of $9,000 are up for grabs.
