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.

As an ex serviceman (RAAF) and current member of DSG still working at RAAF Base Edinburgh I am proud to say that this is a worthy cause an contribute to the cause each year. As the Captain of Two Wells Golf Club which is a small sand greens club of approx 60 members we will support the cause even after our season officially ends in early Oct 12. I see the hard work by both RAAF and Army at work every day and have nothing but admiration for their combined efforts serving this great nation.

Good Evening, My name is Tracey Burgess and I was wondering if you would be hosting any dinners/fundraisers for the Remembrance Golf Day/s? Please call me on 6204 0000 or email if you are in need of a Function Centre that could potentially host many or a few. An idea is to link it to a race day and host a lunch? We could look at something like Lunch & Drinks for around the $100.00pp mark (meal pending & priceTBC). Your thoughts?

How about having some golf/legacy magnetic ball markers for sale?
