Willaura golf legacy continues

Colin and Larelle McInnes and Doug and Jandi Slattery won Willaura Golf Club’s annual Legacy Golf Day.

The 70-year-old event attracted 36 players who made the most of sunny conditions to play a mixed four-person ambrose, with proceeds from the day donated to Ararat Legacy.

Max Vallance, ‘Nar’ McInnes, ‘Skeeta’ Fisher and Robert McDonald from Lake Bolac were runners-up.

Longest drives went to Terry Walker and Barb Gill, and Karen Gleeson, Helenmary Macleod and Neil Bradford were nearest the pins. John Jenkinson and Greg McInnes won raffle prizes.

Club president Richard Laidlaw thanked all involved, including volunteers who maintained the course and provided catering.

Ararat Legatee Steve Shannon said he was pleased to see the club continue its long association with Legacy, noting that it was ‘a phenomenal effort to recognise the work of Legacy for more than three score years and 10 and still be going strong’.

He also reminded players and supporters that some of the 99 widows in Ararat Legacy’s care lived in Willaura district.
