Golfers urged to dress up or down

IT is a 10-year tradition which always seems to draw a crowd and this year is set to be no different.

Players in Emerald PCYC's annual Charity Golf Day are ready to hit the fairways once again in all manner of dress or undress.

While fancy dress isn't an absolute must for the three-ball ambrose event, it's certainly encouraged by PCYC's Renae Cannon.

"It helps make the teams a bit more recognisable... and it's a bit of fun," Cannon said.

"It's not about the winning or losing, it's just about enjoying the day."

Last year's Ghostbusters team looked every bit the part with a putter in hand tackling the greens, and it's hoped for similar imaginative themes in 2011.

Tee-off is from 9.30am on October 15 with all proceeds going back to the community in ongoing maintenance of the PCYC facilities.

"We've taken over from the indoor sports centre, so the funds will go to improvements to cater for that," Cannon said.
