Further congratulations go to to both Uncle Mac Brown for the longest drive, and Uncle John Jia for taking the player of the day.

Congratulations to Devonta Heron for taking out the up-and-coming champion. Anthony Edwards for the Happy Golfer and to Jordan who for his first ever game of Golf, got the amateur golfer of the day.

ABOUT THE 2021 AIFN Golf Event

The 2021 AIFN Golf Event was the brainchild of John Fejo, a keen golfer who wanted to introduce the game of golf to Australian Indigenous and First Nation players. It is hoped that this first event will be the launching pad for more events in the future.
