#DoingItForJarrod charity days have teed off, with more than 120 clubs across the country digging deep by registering a member’s day to raise funds for Challenge in memory of our great mate, Jarrod Lyle.

Headland Golf Club led the charge at the Property Today and Innovative Planning Solutions Headland Pro-Am in July where 71 PGA Professionals and 150 amateur golfers dressed in yellow for the first official #DoingItForJarrod day.

Over 70 clubs have signed up to host #DoingItForJarrod days in August, while more than 40 others have organised events in September (click here to see the full list of clubs). If your club’s not on the list, it’s not too late to register!

In support of Jarrod’s legacy, Challenge, the PGA of Australia and Golf Australia ask the golf community to get involved this August and September by dedicating a competition day to his memory to raise funds for this important cause.

Joining is easy. All you need to do is dedicate an existing member’s day to the #DoingItForJarrod cause and encourage members to dress in yellow, create a yellow theme or sell Challenge and Leuk the Duck merchandise at the event to raise funds. Tax-deductible donations are also accepted.

To support and thank clubs for their involvement, all clubs that participate will enter the draw to win an invitation to play alongside golf’s best in the Australian PGA Championship Pro-Am to be held on Wednesday 18 December at RACV Royal Pines Resort.

For further details and to register your club’s #DoingItForJarrod golf day, visit www.challenge.org.au.

All proceeds from #DoingItForJarrod will go to Challenge to support kids with cancer and realise Jarrod Lyle’s wish of helping Challenge provide the little things to families that make all the difference.
