Monday 27 January 2020

The bushfires are a national calamity. Our thoughts are with everyone affected, the firefighters and other relief personnel. 

This is a time when we all want to help. Our Club is in the unique situation of being able to make a substantial contribution by using our course for a charity golf event. 

Our General Manager, Warwick Hill-Rennie, and his team are therefore taking the lead in co-ordinating a bushfire appeal charity golf day on Monday 27 January 2020 at our Club. This event is being organised in conjunction with the other Sandbelt clubs, the Australian PGA and the State Government. 

 The online auction can be viewed at Bushfire Charity Auction 

All proceeds will go to the new fund for bushfire survivors established by the State Government: vic.gov.au/bushfireappeal.  Members can of course make personal donations to this fund or other funds.  Our bowlers are separately raising money to go to the bowls disaster relief fund: www.bowls.com.au

If any Member wishes to donate an item for the auctions or sponsor our charity golf day on 27 January 2020 they should contact Warwick Hill-Rennie: gm@royal.melbourne
