Sport the winner at golf event

LUKE Snow has six of his golf balls in the dam between the tee and hole on the 13th at the Warwick Golf Club, a resting place for shots of many Warwick golfers.

"I just want to drive one over the top," he said.

During the week, the Buddy Up Golf Day was held to celebrate Disability Awareness Week.

It was a continuation of regular Tuesday golf under the direction of Department of Communities local area co-ordinating supervisor Dave Gavin.

Luke and his brother Colin play a bit of golf with the weekly group.

"It is a challenge to hit the ball over the lake," Colin said.

"I like everything about golf."

Shane Locke has been playing for two years with Gavin's group and reckons he can beat his brother Nugget and father Peter at the sport.

Glen Pearce enjoyed his hit of golf this week.

"It was great fun, I want to play again," Pearce said.

"I am best at driving."

Gavin said the day wasn't about winning.

"Golf was the winner with 20 participants," he said. "Members of the community joined our group as buddies on the course."

The games for Disability Awareness Week were played by teams of four as an ambrose.

This weekend will be one of the busiest of the year at Warwick Golf Club with two events, the Big W Charity Day today and Local Ambulance Committee Charity Day tomorrow.

By late Thursday, there were 150 nominations for the Big W Day and 80 for the ambulance fundraiser.
