Centurions Charity Golf Day

Centurions Charity Golf Day

Date: 14/02/2020

Location: Shannon Golf Club

Our annual golf day will be held on 14 February 2020 at Shannon golf club.  Please keep this afternoon free.

In 2018 with 20 teams participating we raised $2,800 to support the New Zealand Rugby Foundation and Centurions Rugby.  In 2019 we again raised over $2,000 but our aim this year is to raise even more.  To do so we need more entries particularly from WRFU clubs. We had great support again with products from Kapura, DB, Pernod-Ricard and Porters Winery—and from ANZ, Hutt City Council, Apex Print, Gibson Sheat and WRFU who all entered teams in 2019. 

Not everyone plays golf but all of our members have contacts in businesses or clubs –so please suggest to them that they enter a team or donate a prize.  We promise that they will have great day in support of 2 very worthy causes! –and with the ambrose format we cater for those who are golfers and those who just give it a go. Please just e-mail this newsletter to your contacts—the entry fee for a team of 4 is a very reasonable $300 including green fees, a light BBQ to start, on-course drinks, post round food platter and prizes.  The entry form will be on our website soon.

The 2019 winner of the Centurions Cup for golf supremacy amongst our clubs was Tawa RFC—another first time winner following Johnsonville’s success in 2018 and WRFU, Poneke and Wellington College Old Boys in earlier years. See photo of the successful Tawa team of (left to right) Ian Rudd, Paul de Bernardo, Kevin Carmichael and Paul Green. Well done Tawa!  Come on you Hutt Valley Clubs we know you have golfers in your ranks!
