The second Annual Friends of NADO Charity Golf Day was held on Friday 22nd November 2019 at the scenic Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club. Excitement had been building in the lead up to this event with NSW State of Origin Coach Brad “Freddy” Fittler showing his support together with Elite Sand & Soil and many of our great sponsors making this day a great success.
The day started off with an early 7am breakfast and then the 23 teams headed out onto the course soon after to start the competition in their teams of four.
A little additional competitive fun was brought into the event with Daryll McAuley taking out the Mystery Hole, Ian Davies winning the Nearest to the Pin on hole 6, Troy Norris winning Longest Drive, Ian Mundy Nearest to the Pin on hole 16, as well as Steve Gorry who won the Putting Competition overseen by Bow Lennon and Chris Torro two of NADO participants stationed on the green to record their results.
At the conclusion of the game, all players headed into the function room for a well-deserved drink and scrumptious luncheon provided by the professional chefs at Stonecutters Ridge. However the day did not stop there, as a live auction kicked off together with raffles, prizes and a silent auction with Peter Campbell from Gallagher walking away with $1000 from our Golden Ticket Raffle Draw.
Big thanks to Brad Fittler for taking the time out of his busy schedule to play a round of golf and to support our event as well as do a live interview with MC of the day Troy Kennedy.
This year’s winners of the Friends of NADO Charity Golf Day included Drummond Golf Penrith (first place), One Agency Reeves Properties (second place) and ABCOE (third place). Congratulations to these teams and well done to all of the players on the day!
Jason Roberts, Owner of Elite Sand & Soil and his team have been a huge support to this event for the past two years and this event would not be what it is today, without their help and guidance.
We would also like to sincerely thank all of our sponsors – for without their generous support this event would not be possible. All funds raised from this event go to help and support people with disability across the Penrith and Blue Mountain regions.
