The Rotary Club of Port Fairy's inaugural golf day was held at the Port Fairy golf course on 20 April.  The day was judged a successful event by both players and volunteers who reported that the format for the day worked very well and all had a good time.
President Bill Moore announced that the event raised $3500 which has been allocated to Rotary’s ‘End Trachoma by 2020’ program.
There was great support from sponsors and we thank them for their assistance. Many thanks also to all who volunteered, especially Rotarians Adrian Crosier and Peter Smith, and Friend of Rotary Harry Bracegirdle.  The catering teams and Brett Murray on the drinks cart did a sterling job.
Players from the Grovedale Waurn Ponds Rotary Club had a successful trip down the highway to participate in the event.
The team from  Grovedale Waurn Ponds Rotary Club (Greg Cook, Gary Clark, Lindsay Dixon and Keith Smyth) took off first place.  Second place went to the team from Port Fairy Rotary– Adrian Crosier, Tony Bawden, Harry Bracegirdle and John Ellard, and coming in third were Wally Sheehan, Bob Dwyer, Michael Steele and Don Bartlett of Port Fairy.

After the presentations, Wally Sheehan conducted a goods and services auction and a raffle.

Club President Bill Moore acknowledged  the event’s success could not have happened without the support of local sponsors, particularly major sponsors; Port Fairy Physiotherapy, Port Fairy Golf Club, Port Fairy Medical Clinic, Port Fairy IGA, Port Fairy Big 4 Holiday Park and Sheehan’s Meats.
