Macquarie Links Charity Challenge

FIRST EVENT: 4th February 2010 - 7am for 8.00am Shotgun start - "Inaugural Ambassadors Cup"

For the past 6 years, Gary Dawson and Matthew Laverty have been working together on an event that has changed a lot of lives. it has not only been fun and competitive, it has also served as a very worthy community activity. The Charity Challenge has offered golfers of all standards a creditable golf competition, whilst at the same time raising monies for various worthy Australian Charities. The Net result to date since the events inception is approaching $600K.

2004 was the birth of this great event known as “The Macquarie Links Charity Challenge”. The top two teams from each charity days qualified for the final with the winners going to Huntingdale for the last day of the Australian Masters. The next day they would play the course as it was set up for the tournament.

The competition was an American Foursome format which proved popular. Golfers got to play one of the finest new Sydney layouts, that being "Macquarie Links". This year we will vary the formats of each of the events, but will continue to have the final as an American foursomes format, (there will also be some interesting activities to keep you interested on course).

One point of difference was each charity will nominate how the monies they are receiving will be spent. That way you will get to share the emotion of perhaps granting a wish, providing funds for valuable research or simply purchasing equipment. In 2006 some of the funds were used to grant two wishes, send 8 Athletes to the Special Olympic games, provide funding for a Cerebral Palsy project in FIJI.

Many of you have been great supporters of ours in the past. We hope we can continue to have your support in 2010.
