WOOMBYE Bowls Club spared its greens the mower last weekend and instead targeted the heads and faces of four loyal members for a good cause.
Paul Carter, Alan Young, Darryl Kopp and Ian Cranney all grew then shaved their moustaches, with members chipping in to raise more than $1600 for the Movember Foundation in just 30 days.
The men had only set a target of $1000, which was surpassed with ease.
The Movember Foundation dedicates the month of November to raising funds and awareness for men's health - a cause club chairman Doug Tognolini was eager to support.
"I think we'll do it every year,” he said, before confirming the club had raised $1644.05.
"It was a fun afternoon out and we had a bit of excitement with the lopping going on.”
Kopp (pictured) went all-out in aid of the cause, with volunteer hairdresser Anne McDougall helping to shave his beard of almost 30 years.
"It was an odd-looking beard with two daggers coming from the chin,” Tognolini said.
"They cut off a bit of his hair and he said, 'Take the whole lot off'. He looked like a different bloke.”
It capped off an exciting month of events at the small hinterland club, which has been operating since 1947.
It recently hosted its 11th annual $10,000 competition, which attracted bowlers from across the Sunshine Coast and Queensland.
With fewer than 90 playing members on the books and just one-and-a-half greens (12 rinks), Tognolini said the club punched above its weight.
"We don't have brand new buildings but we do really well for what we are,” he said.
"We're extremely competitive at pennant level.
"We're growing and not decreasing, which is promising.”
