2017  Probus Victoria Friendship Golf Day

This year the Probus Friendship Golf Day was hosted for the third year in a row by the Combined Probus Club of Wheelers Hill at the Churchill / Waverley Golf Club in Rowville .

In total contrast to last year the day dawned with a cloudless sky, a gentle breeze and warm conditions.The sun protection was applied and the water bottles all filled as 92 expectant and excited golfers took to the fairways for this years challenge for the Probus perpetual trophy .

The competition as always was intense, with the victors narrowly winning with the benefit of a slightly higher handicap.This year the trophy was won by Mt Waverley Combined with the host club Wheelers Hill a close second.

Once again the event was sponsored by Trade Travel, Grand Pacific Tours, Barry Plant Monash, Drummond Golf and Churchill / Waverley Golf Club who we thank sincerely for their continued support.

Following the golf, the  lunch and the presentations were held and  appropriate speeches were forthcoming from the president of PAV Joan Vogles OAM who praised everyone involved and stressed the importance of other clubs taking  responsibility with the continued running of the event. Barry Stevens president of the host club Combined Wheelers Hill also thanked everyone for the day but after 3 years in a row as hosts they will be happy to pass on the baton to a new club next year.

If you as a club are considering hosting next years event please give me a call , even if it is just to talk about it 0423350534.

My personal thanks to all who made this years event so successful
