"The Music & Entertainment Industries supporting Childrens Charities"


The 22nd Anniversary Annual Golden Stave Charity Golf Day 

Featuring the “David Gilchrist Ambrose Challenge”

Will be held on Friday 19th April at the picturesque St. Michael's Golf Club Jennifer St, Little Bay, ranked as one of NSW Top Ten Golf courses. As usual the day will be lots of fun and enjoyment which we are well known for. The format will be the usual 4 ball Ambrose, with a lot of additional surprises over the 18 holes (watch out for the cute Policewoman "IN UNIFORM" who may fine you for speed violations recorded by her hand held RADAR gun).

This year marks the 2nd year of the now annual “David Gilchrist Ambrose Challenge” in memory of our good mate and former loyal hard working committee member David Gilchrist.

So we ask all our loyal supporters and friends to join us and honour David’s memory on Friday 19th April and pay tribute to David in a way he would have liked. By helping making it a wonderful day to remember of golfing fun and raising even more money for kids in need.

Australian Long Drive Champion Mark “Boomer” Bylsma will be joining us for a golf clinic plus also on the long drive holes and will hit balls for all the competitors.
