Gunnedah PaediatRic and Maternity Support (PRAMS) held its annual charity golf day recently, raising an incredible $20,000, with the money going towards its latest project, ‘Home While I am Here,’ improving accommodation for visiting medical professionals.

Thirty teams took part, with a total of 116 golfers, making for a fantastic day of golf, which included a generous golf club donation of $2478.

PRAMS committee member Rebecca Ryan said it was a perfect day.

“It was great to have so many people at the course,” Ms Ryan said.

“There are a lot of players who have been coming for years now which is wonderful.

“We could not run it last year, with COVID interruptions, so it was lovely to run it once again.

“In what has become a bit of a tradition, the day opened with Beetle Boot Camp taking to the golf course for a session, with many boot campers grabbing a breakfast roll.” 

The fun continued after the golf clubs were put away, with live music and competitions and many people leaving with fantastic prizes.

After the presentations, a couple of jars of PRAMS signature capsicum relish were auctioned off, fetching a handsome sum.

Team ‘Wheato’ won the Ambrose event, with Team Brady placing second, Team Court and Brook third, Team Jordo fourth, Crawford fifth and Team Boggabri Coal sixth.

Alan Hamilton, Penny Crawford, Dave Webster, Fay Hausfield, Kent Travers-Jones and Shane Finlay were nearest to the pins and Brad Hopkins and Brooke Fisher were awarded straightest drive.
