Charity Golf Day a big success

A LITTLE inclement weather wasn’t enough to dampen the spirits of golfers playing in the inaugural Ralph Heness Golf Tournament at Rosnay Golf Course in Auburn.

Hosted by the Auburn Lidcombe Lions Club, the annual charity golf event was a success thanks to the “amazing effort” of volunteers, and will be back again in May next year, says president Mick Garvey.

He said HT Tran, Andrew Kwan, Lap Tran and Kit Viet won the Four Ball Ambrose event on 11 under, adding that they were pleased that Liberal candidate for Reid, Fiona Martin, could attend to hand out trophies and prizes on the day.
“Massive thanks to Rosnay Golf Course, Cumberland Council, Bunnings Lidcombe, Dooley’s, Bankstown Sports, Coca-Cola Amatil and DJ Trophies for supporting our 2019 event,” Mr Garvey said.
“Also thanks to Parramatta Lions for the van and also Eric Rhodes for his support with setup and raffles. We raised well over $1,000 in raffle sales thanks to Eric.”

All funds raised on the day will be used to support St Joseph’s Hospital Auburn (St Vincent’s), Save Our Sons and Freedom Across Australia, and while the event is actually the Lions Club’s 47th annual charity golf day, this is the first year it was renamed in honour of club stalwart Ralph Heness who has been running the event since 1974.
