Golfers take swing for charity
A TEAM from Clifton couldn't wait to join in on the green Warwick Golf Club course yesterday as almost 100 players hit off at the Endeavour Charity Day.
Clifton Golf Club member Warren Williams was approached by Peter Stacey to nominate a team in the carnival, and had a team organised within 30 minutes.
"We were sponsored by Don Russell from Southern Downs Mazda and Warwick Holden, and were keen to support Endeavour," he said.
Genny Imhoff was playing on the Warwick course for the first time.
"We are here to have fun," Mrs Imhoff said.
Mr Williams lived in Toowoomba before moving to Clifton nine years ago.
He has played golf up to four times a week for the past two years, but yesterday was his first hit on the Warwick course.
Team member Rob Imhoff said the Clifton club had a long association with Warwick.
"We play Warwick in pennants," he said.
The four from Clifton can relate to charity days.
They attracted 92 to a charity day at Clifton a week ago to raise funds for the 19th Hole Club, which supports the golf club.
Clifton has an annual golf day for RACQ CareFlight.
"The course in Warwick looks really good," he said.
Warwick businesswoman Clare Jeffries was playing for the first time yesterday.
"I played for three reasons - Majella Kahler asked me, it is an ambrose event and the day is in support of the Endeavour Foundation," she said.
Endeavour state board member David de Villiers, of Gladstone, said the association depended heavily on the community and volunteers.
"We couldn't do it without the community and fundraisers like the golf day," he said.
The major difference between Warwick and Clifton is the number of holes.
Clifton is a 10-hole course.
In an 18-hole event, the second hole is the only one of the first nine not used a second time in an event.
The Endeavour event was organised by Janet Davis.
