Golfers take caps off for Sam and charity

By TONY WHITE

MORE than 120 golfers will tee off at the Grafton District Golf Club this Sunday for the Sam Dougherty Memorial Charity Golf Day.

It is the biggest corporate charity golf day ever staged in Grafton.

Special guest players and speakers will be former Australian cricketer Greg Ritchie and leading Northern Rivers jockey Glen Colless, who partnered Lachlan River to fifth placing in this year's Melbourne Cup.

Colless will reveal an amazing behind the scenes tale from Australia's greatest race.

Radio 2GF personality Richie Williamson will host proceedings.

More than 40 three person teams have entered the 18-hole ambrose event that is scheduled to commence with a shotgun start from 10.30am.

Following the golf event and presentations, a sporting memorabilia auction after 3pm will be conducted with Kim Dahl auctioneer.

Proceeds raised on the day will go towards St Joseph's Cowper Home, Grafton, Ronald McDonald House, Newcastle and Grafton Rotary Club.

Organisers are expecting to raise between $15,000 to $20,000.

Major sponsor on the day is Reed Property Group with numerous local business houses securing gold and silver sponsorships.
