The Bathurst Golf Club will host a NAIDOC Golf Day on Friday, with all proceeds made on the day going towards a new local junior indigenous golf program.

Event organiser Percy Raveneau said he’s hoping the day will be a success.

“This will be the first NAIDOC Golf Day in Bathurst,” he said.

“Of course you have you have NAIDOC Golf Days in Orange, Dubbo, Wellington.

“I couldn’t get the kids out for the touch day this year because of COVID, but I thought we might do a golf day, something a bit different, which is a good thing.

“All the proceeds will go to the indigenous golf program, which we’re going to start up.”

Raveneau said he wanted to pay credit to the sponsors of the event.

“A big thanks to all of our sponsors with donating the prizes,” he said.

“I know we’ve been going through a pandemic, but people have been so generous.

“A big thank you to our major sponsor Fully Promoted too.”

The day will be an 18 hole ambrose, with four players in a team.

Tee off is from 9am and cost is $60 per player, which includes green fees, lunch and refreshments, shirt, cap, towell, two golf balls, markers, tees and tee holders.

There’ll be a huge raffle on the day too, with major prizes.

A nine hole ambrose is available from 2pm if people cannot participate in the 18 hole event.
