Ambrose A Big Hit

The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge held a 2 person Ambrose Golf Tournament at the Murray Bridge Golf Club on Thursday 17th October. The main aim was to raise funds for “Lift the Lid” mental health research through Australian Rotary Health.  The golf event was also about promoting the game of golf, the camaraderie of playing the game with one’s mates, walking or riding around the golf course, enjoying the fresh air and having some fun.  All of which assists one’s mental health.
A total of 42 golfers from 11 Golf Clubs participated in the event, with a shotgun start at 12.30pm.  Some were Rotarians, many were not.  Many of the competitors had never played at the Murray Bridge Golf Club, so, in effect, we were promoting the Golf Club too.
The Rotary Club thanks its sponsors for the Tournament, Drakes Supermarket Murray Bridge, Dynacast Golf Group, Aussie Apricots and the Rural City of Murray Bridge.
At the end of the day’s play, the Rotary Club provided a bbq meal for the players.  From the survey conducted at the end of the day’s play, the majority of the players said that they enjoyed the fellowship of their playing partners and the quality of the golf course.  Many players indicated that they would be keen to return next year and play in the event again.
Winners for the Tournament were Rotarian Malcolm Blight and Lloyd Norrish, with runners-up, Peter Phillips and Grant Penrhyn.
