In the pink for a good cause

Port Hedland Golf Club turned pink at the weekend, thanks to sponsor Elders Insurance, to raise valuable funds for Pink Ribbon Day.

Each hole on the course was transformed into a par 3, and in gale-force winds, this proved tricky for some and handy for others.

It was mandatory for all golfers, no matter how fancy their attire, to play with a pink ball.

The best handicap team went to the Sunday Sledgers, proving ball colour was no ssue for their final scorecard of 52 points (41.62 net).

The Sledgers also walked away with the long putt on holes 3 and 12, although some believe they talked the ball to the hole.

Showing no ruffles in their feathers, the best non-handicap team went to the Galahs, soaring in with 51 points (41.37 net).

Taking advantage of playing a course with 18 par 3’s, team “B” Shift shared honours on the 2nd, hitting nearest the pin.

The biggest winner of the day was breast cancer research, with more than $1200 raised.

The club thanked Elders Insurance for its sponsorship of a great cause and everyone involved for their support.

This coming Saturday is the final day of the 18 hole competition where Captains V Presidents will play for bragging rights. Names in by 11.30am for a 12 noon tee.
