Call for golfers to take part in Proudies

Tim EdmundsAlbany Advertiser

The opportunity to tee off to raise funds for the Proudies Foundation is still available, with organisers calling for teams to play in the foundation’s inaugural Albany golf day this Friday.

Almost 70 players are already registered for the fundraising event at the Albany Golf Club, with organisers hoping for a last-minute rush of entries.

The Proudies Foundation Golf Day will be the foundation’s major fundraiser in the city for the year, with funds to assist in the care of Warrick Proudlove, who was seriously injured in a car accident in 2011.

The talented local footballer, was playing for Claremont Football Club when the car in which he was a passenger hit a stray horse and a tree on Albany Highway near Mt Barker.

He has since required round-the-clock care after sustaining serious head injuries, leading to the foundation being established to assist his family financially.

A new Nissan X-Trail from Albany City Motors is up for grabs for the player who can sink a hole in one on the par-three 10th hole, with the four-person Ambrose expected to attract golfers of all abilities.

Warrick and parents Kevin and Trish are expected to attend.

Proudies Foundation board member Steve Shann said he expected spots to fill up fast at the last minute, with a quality night of entertainment planned following the entertaining 18 holes of golf.

He said those wishing to enjoy the night were invited for an evening meal and entertainment by local band Pinstripe for $25.

Entry for the golf day is $400 a team or $100 per person.

Entry forms can be collected from the Albany Golf Club.
