Preparations are well under way for Gerringong Golf Club’s major fundraising and charity golf day, The Green Day Out.
As the club is a voluntary run, not-for-profit organisation, without poker machines or a large membership to fund course improvements, it relies heavily on fundraising and community support.
“This event provides funds to assist in keeping Gerringong Golf Club one of the most beautiful courses on the coast and wholly owned by the members,” says Wendy Cutting. “Any donations of items for prizes, raffle or auction are most welcome.”
This year, a portion of monies raised will also be donated to The Gerringong Committee of The Children’s Medical Research Institute. Since 1959, the committee has fundraised close to $1.9 million to assist in medical research into many children’s diseases and cancers.
A three person Ambrose tournament (open to all players, with or without a handicap) will be played on the day, at the cost of $95 per person. This entry fee covers breakfast, lunch, green fees and a commemorative hat.

Team sponsorship is tax deductible and is available at a cost of $440. This includes team green fees, cart hire, lunch, breakfast, and commemorative hats, as well as corporate signage or banners erected on the day. For the second year, Gerringong First National Real Estate is the event’s major sponsor.
A presentation and lunch will follow the game at Gerroa Fisherman’s Club.
