Golf Australia, Legacy and the Australian Defence Force, supported by technology and business services company CSC, have initiated Remembrance Golf Day for Legacy, a fundraiser for the leading charity that cares for the welfare of families of our fallen and wounded.
Launched today at Royal Canberra Golf Club, golf clubs around Australia are encouraged to hold competitions and activities on or around Remembrance Day, similar to the United States’ Patriot Golf Day.
Patron of the initiative, Chief of the Defence Force General David Hurley officially launched the event.
A gold coin donation is asked of each player, in addition to their green or match fee.
Golf Australia National Director Golf Development Frances Crampton said “there are many veterans and families of veterans who are actively involved in golf and we look forward to supporting the good work which many have already begun through the Remembrance Golf Day.”
Clubs and communities are also encouraged to host a competition or activity to raise additional funds for Legacy’s cause and club sponsors may also wish to contribute to this activity.
