Polish those clubs for golf day

MAYOR Paul Pisasale is asking the people of Ipswich to dust off the old clubs and help flood survivors by taking part in a charity golf day next Friday.

The Help Ipswich Recover Golf Day will aim to raise funds for the 8500 people, 3000 homes and 60 businesses affected by Ipswich’s worst flooding since 1974.

The four-ball Ambrose tournament will take place at Ipswich Golf Club and will include a light lunch and presentation dinner.

There will also be a charity auction to help boost the final fundraising figure.

Ipswich Golf Club general manager Brett Holdway said there were still plenty of spots left for those who wanted to have a hit.

“Many businesses and families are still struggling, and with the media hype well and truly gone, it is now that we can have the biggest impact,” he said.
