Hundred tee off for crime

ROB McConnell and Astrid Turner won the annual Warwick Crime Stoppers Golf Day yesterday with a score of 57½.

They won in a field of 109 which included eight officers from the Queensland Police Force.

McConnell, the club professional, and Turner won from Jason Owens and Harold Byrne, who scored 60½ to be first runners-up.

Don Warrener and Mal Crawford were second runners-up with 60¾ points and Ross Bell and Anna Cox scored 61¼ to be third runners-up.

Crime Stoppers committee president Cameron Schoenfisch rated the day the best fundraiser on record.

“Socially it was also a top day,” Schoenfisch said.

Due to the amazing sponsorship from Warwick businesses, prizes were presented to 25 pairs in the two-ball ambrose event.

Overall there were 60 sponsors.

The major sponsor, the Warwick RSL, donated $1000 and was yesterday represented by eight players.

Trevor Rock had no hesitation in lobbing up to the Warwick Golf Club at 11.30am yesterday for the shotgun start.

A regular golfer, Rock finds the sport and the two-ball ambrose which was played yesterday relaxing.

“There is too much crime around Warwick, and I urge people to take notice of what is going on around them,” Rock said.

Black Toyota Warwick manager Jason Denny was playing in the Crime Stoppers’ day for a third time.

“We have four players from Black Toyota in the event,” Denny said.

“I like to support the charity days,” he said.

Many Warwick businesses fielded teams.
