Fairview Homestead Association held a successful charity golf day at the Springs Golf Club, Peats Ridge, on Friday, May 16.
There were 62 players, who were joined by another 15 people for a luncheon soon after the competition, which was followed by an auction. Association president Mr Warren Andrews said there were many enjoyable aspects of the day. “A hole-in-one contest with a $10,000 prize was conducted, but whilst there were a number of close attempts, no one succeeded in winning the prize.
“Other contests were held for longest drive, pay the-pro and nearest pin, which all added to the day.” A surplus of just over $12,000 was obtained from the golf and auction. This money will go towards the costs of preparing a development application to be lodged with council for the restoration of Fairview Homestead. “Whilst more funds need to be raised for that purpose, preparations are now commencing for the development application,” said Mr Andrews.
