Caloundra Rotary goes all out

WHEN it comes to fundraising, services clubs know a thing or two, but the Caloundra Pacific Rotary Club is going all out for this year's Ian Baker-Finch Charity Golf Day.

President Dan Thomasson said the team event, to be held at the Caloundra Golf Club on October 16, would take the Ambrose competition to the next level.

Competitors need only hit a hole-in-one on the designated hole to win a 2015 Volkswagen Golf donated by Garry Crick Auto.

"It's a par three so it is possible," Mr Thomasson said.

"There have been plenty of holes-in-one on that particular hole in the past.

"But it's like any hole in one - they don't happen every day."

This year the club will donate the proceeds of the annual golf day to RACQ CareFlight and they will bring in a helicopter on the day to keep to the theme.

Mr Thomasson said a local pilot would fly a chopper over a hole and drop 100 numbered golf balls.

Whoever's golf ball lands closest to the hole wins $800.

Places are still available for teams of four to register for the day at a cost of $1000.

The club is hoping to raise up to $20,000 to help the rescue helicopter service continue its operations.

To register a team for the event, phone Tony Long on 0419 773 460 or email golf@calpac.org.au.
