The fourth annual golf day was another successful day at the Commonwealth Golf Club. 21 teams competed in an Ambrose event on Monday 27 April and helped raise funds for the Sacré Cœur Foundation Building Fund. Although a much cooler day than 2014, the weather while overcast held off any significant rain and 82 players cheerfully braved the chill to battle it out on the course. Friendly camaraderie and competitiveness was evident among parents past and present, corporate sponsors and friends of the School.
This year thanks to the generosity of our sponsors we were able to run a silent auction with an assortment of great prizes and a business card draw which was drawn at the end of the day in conjunction with the trophy presentations. All the prizes were well received and together with the post golf drinks and canapés provided a happy end to a very enjoyable day.
Congratulations to all who took part in this fantastic event and special congratulations to our top scorers:
Winning Team Men and overall winners The CGU team of Ross Johansen, Stephen Frenkel, Lucas Koraitsas and Tony Hand
