THIS weekend, Rich River Golf Club will host the 10th Annual Sludgee Cup, a tournament for golfers of all handicaps.
The cup is played in memory of Simon ’Sludgee’ Rosendale, a much loved member of the golf club and talented golfer who played off a two stroke handicap.
Such was his love for the course, he even moved into a unit across the road from the course to increase the time he could spend there.
Tragically, Simon passed away after a battle with cancer in 2007, aged just 37.
In Simon’s memory, his friends, family and the Rich River club organised the Sludgee Cup.
The cup is an opportunity for players of all handicaps and abilities to head to the course for a hit of golf and to give a thought to Simon.
All proceeds from the day go to the team Family Ties for the Relay for Life, in the hope that a cure can one day be found.
The event is competed under two player stableford rules, so grab your partner and some clubs to start swinging this Sunday, the 10th of December.
Players are asked to meet at Rich River Golf Club at 8am for an 8.30am hit off.
Entry is $15 per head, with prizes for the better players, as well as some for the not so good.
