The Battlescares organisation have launched their new golf fundraiser for 2020. It will be run from January 2020 to April 2020 and players can play at their own clubs or at any other Tasmanian golf club. Players must play at least one stableford competition for each Month but can play as many rounds as they like. The players best score for each month will become their score for the month and the total of the best score from each month will be the players total score. Once these rounds have been completed the top 10% of scores will get to play in the final to be held over a weekend of golf at Barnbougle and Lost Farm which will include two rounds (one at each course and a nights accommodation for two people) with the winner of the final taking home the major prize of a weekend at King Island including accommodation and rounds at Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes.
All funds raised from this event will go to families within our communities. So far Battlescares have donated $116,000 in the past five years to over thirty families. This is a very worthy organisation that does a lot of good for the local community so please support them.
