Horsham Golf Club Ashes to help burnt Mallacoota Golf Club

Horsham Golf Club ladies committee will donate $700 raised in an Ashes Trophy raffle to fire-affected Mallacoota Golf Club.

Horsham Ladies president Trudy Parker said the Mallacoota course had sustained severe damage to an irrigation system, greens, fairway trees and fairways.

“They are a small club with about 110 members. Our own club received a lot of support from other golf clubs after fire razed our own fairways and clubhouse in 2009,” she said.

“While golf is the last thing on the minds of people in the fire areas, we felt it appropriate to support a club needing to re-establish their course.”

The 11th annual Ashes Trophy event, a three-ball best-ball stableford, which commemorates the 2009, February 9, fire in Horsham, attracted a field of 71 women golfers.

Pat Brooksby, Pauline Salter and June Gross won the trophy, a hand-crafted prize created by Michael and June Crabtree from the burnt remains of one of the many trees lost in 2009, with a score of 51.

Horsham and visiting female players will tomorrow compete in a Carlin and Gazzard open pinehurst.
