A good field of 104 Ladies from Hurstville, Cronulla, Woolooware, Kareela, Bexley and Beverley Park Golf Clubs laughed and smiled their way through the damp and gloomy conditions Mother Nature delivered in support of Ovarian Cancer.

Marilyn Holdsworth was a Lady Member of Hurstville Golf Club who passed away early this year after a long battle with Cancer. Marilyn was one of the founding Lady Members of Hurstville and was very active as a Liaison Officer for the Hurstville Lady Members and will be greatly missed by all.

I was happy to be involved for a great cause and was asked to “Drive for a Donation” off our 1st Tee in lieu of a Gold Coin donation. I trust my tee shots assisted in a small and fun way to assist the day.

The Charity Auction and Lunch was hosted by Sue Eller (HGC Member) at the end of proceedings was a huge success with $7300 raised for Ovarian Cancer. Sue would like to thank HGC for their donation, Bluefit and Hurstville Council for use of the Golf Course and all the Ladies who donated their time and efforts for the day.

Part of the funds raised from the auction have been able to purchase a Memorial bench for Marilyn which will be displayed on the golf course soon and will be a nice way to reflect on Marilyn.
