There was a record number of players and more than $7000 was raised for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) at the Ray White and Nagambie Golf Club four-person ambrose fundraiser.

One hundred and twenty-eight players hit off in near perfect weather conditions and they were greeted by football legends Terry Daniher and Paul Vander Haar at the end of the day’s play.

With the course in great condition, some good scores were carded.

The winning quartet, led by Lindsay Hall, was Daniel Hall, Paul Smith and Leigh Stanbrook with 69-13.36-55.64.

The runners-up were former club champion Brett Barnes, and his team consisting of Tom Barnes, David Brack and Paul Maroney, shooting 67-10.25-56.75.

In third place were Moz Fowler’s group of Andrew Taylor, Shaun Fowler and Vic Cassar producing 67-10.13-56.87.

It was good to see these former players back on the course.

Prizes went all the way down to 12th due to the generous donations from sponsors.

The nearest-the-pins for women went to Moz Fowler on the eighth, and Jenny Jeong claimed both the 13th and 16th.

The mens went to Steve Brook on the third, Shane McCormick on the eighth, Lindsay Hall on the 13th and Tom Barnes on the 16th.
