2024 SGA Foodbank Charity Golf Day at Kingston Heath

The 2024 SGA Foodbank Charity Golf Day

Kingston Heath GC, October 1, 2024. 12:00 Shotgun

Tee it up for a good cause, and help struggling Australian families find their next meal.

TEE IT UP TO SUPPORT AUSSIE FAMILIES

Over the last few years, Australian families across the country have been belted by Covid, bushfires, weather events and more.  And many of these families are struggling -- REALLY struggling -- to make ends meet. Some are just hoping to secure their next meal.

Social Golf Australia --a family-owned and operated Australian business--understands these struggles, and is once again partnering with Foodbank Victoria - a not-for-profit food relief organisation, to raise much-needed funds to help Aussie families.

Entry is $299 per person, with a portion going directly to Foodbank Vic, courtesy of SGA and Kingston Heath.

The Course

Kingston Heath Golf Club

The event will be played at the amazing Kingston Heath Golf Club (ranked # 2 in Australia, and #18 in THE WORLD).

Kingston Heath is no stranger to world-class golf, having hosted the World Cup of Golf in November 2016, the Australian Masters in 2009 & 2012, the Women's Australian Open in 2008 and seven Men's Australian Open events. It is also set to host a future Australian Open when the event returns to Victoria. 

It is among one of the world's very best courses, and has been celebrated by the planet's top professional and amateur players.

Foodbank Victoria

Whether it’s everyday emergencies or in times of crisis, Foodbank Victoria has been providing vital food relief to vulnerable Victorians for more than 90 years. Through their network of 533 charity partners across the State, they are able to provide 1.2 million meals a month to Victorians in need. And while supporting their charity partners is at the core of what they do, as the State’s dedicated emergency food relief organisation, they’re also ready to assist Victorians through times of crisis.

Foodbank Victoria's vision is healthy food for all. They believe that all Victorians should have regular access to healthy food. That’s why they work with partners right across the food and grocery sector, from farmers and growers right through to retailers, to source and rescue essential food and grocery items to redistribute to Victorians in need.

In partnership with the Victorian government, they also deliver Victoria’s largest School Breakfast Clubs Program to the state’s most disadvantaged schools.

For every $1 Foodbank Victoria receive, they’re able to provide 2 meals for someone in need.

Every dollar donated is two meals created. It’s that simple. 

  • Percentage raised/pledged towards our fundraising goal ($5000 = 10,000 meals!)

ROUND 3. THURSDAY

The Glades

Today, you'll tee it up on The Glades, regarded by many as the finest golf course on the Gold Coast.

The facility features superb playing surfaces with unique “Creeping bent grass” greens that ensure a superior putting surface all year round. The Glades is on 65 hectares of land with a total of 98 bunkers. Norman not only had a vision to create a challenging golf course on the Gold Coast, but he also retained 9 hectares of wetland area to create a natural wildlife sanctuary within the course.

An exciting 3-team sudden-death playoff decided the champions of the 2021 William Buckley Classic!

The William Buckley Classic Format

  • The William Buckley Classic is a 36-hole siege for teams of two playing two-ball ambrose.
  • Each team will be assigned a handicap by the organisers on the basis of official Australian handicaps and information supplied by the Bushrangers. The handicapper will be governed by a commitment to rewarding good play according to a player’s ability.

Rules:

  • Each member hits their shot, then chooses the best of the two, and continues play from there. Teams play their chosen best ball on each shot and may place their ball half a club length (about 50cms) from where the chosen ball lay, no nearer the hole. Balls must be placed in the same cut as the chosen ball. In the interests of fast play from tee to green, teams are NOT required to mark with a tee and precisely measure from the chosen ball as they play each shot. Once on the green, Bushrangers should mark near the chosen best ball so both team members play from near enough to the exact same position.
  • The event features a Rodeo Rule, which requires a minimum number of drives for each team member. Each team’s rodeo requirements will appear on their scorecard.
  • Nearest-the-Pin & Longest Drive: will be held as some usual tasty ‘side action’ between teams.

Playoffs:

  • In the event of a tie, a sudden-death playoff will be conducted. Teams play together as a twosome (taking alternate strokes playing one ball). Teams can determine the order as each member takes their first shot. This order is then continuous and carries over from one hole to the next until the playoff is decided.
