It was one of those days when the tee often went further than the golf ball as beginners and golfers teamed up for a hit and giggle during the Particularly Pink Golf Day at St George.

45 pink clad ladies assembled for a few quick putting tips from Warwick Pro Sam Eaves before scrambling to a fleet of golf carts as they dashed to beat the heat as a scorching day rolled in.

Now in its 12th year, the St George Particularly Pink Golf Day raises funds for the Breast and Prostate Cancer Association to provide financial assistance to local cancer patients.

Since the Breast Screen Bus passed through the town last year there has been a spike in breast cancer diagnoses.

One of those currently undergoing treatment is Carol Champion, a long time A Grade St George Golfer.

For her the fun day, three ball Ambrose, was her first time back on the golf course in six months.

Teamed with her sister Kylie Redgen, who has come down to look after Carol during her chemotherapy treatment, and another local Kym Webster she won the event.

Rejoicing over a lavish lunch in the Club House, Carol Champion said it was awesome to have everyone there raising funds to help local patients.

“We’re so lucky here the way everyone supports each other,” she said. 

“And of course to have local Breast Care Nurse, Lana Russell, helping us through the medical system and answering our questions.”

St George Golf Club associates president Bindy Mace said almost $2000 was raised and everyone was looking forward to doing it all again next year.
