Putter around with OzTREKK

Each August, the Perth & District Chamber of Commerce hosts the Dorothy Griffith Memorial Golf Tournament. The tournament is a huge attraction for the business community. As part of our OzTREKK philosophy, which includes offering support to our community, OzTREKK jumped at the chance to spend the day golfing for a good cause!

The day included 18 holes of golf with fun games streamed throughout the links, and upon completion, the participants then headed back to the clubhouse for a great dinner packed with auction items and door prizes!

This year marked the 7th Annual Dorothy Griffith Memorial Tournament, which was renamed to honour the esteemed chamber member who was one if its most active members and volunteers during her lifetime. The tournament helps remind the chamber members and the Perth community about the importance of supporting the community and the essence of volunteerism.

The day began with a minor concern that the unseasonably cool breeze may be a factor in the success of our golf game, but bursts of warm sunshine and friendly encouragement soon put our minds at ease.

For some of us, this was the first time playing, and for others, it was just another day on the green. Before sputtering off in our carts, we enjoyed a generous lunchtime barbecue hosted by the Perth & District Chamber of Commerce. While Nicole held down the fort in the office and Rachel was away in the land of Oz, the rest of us were put in teams of four, and headed out into the green yonder in our golf carts to enjoy an energizing day of golf!

Highlights of the day included Matt’s amazing long drive—where did the ball go? Can anyone even see the ball? and Shannon’s over-the-water shot to keep our orange ball in play! Way to go, Shannon!

After racing back to the clubhouse—with Kristyn and Adam narrowly beating Julie and Matt—the entire gathering of golf tournament participants sat down to enjoy a delicious meal. Winner winner, chicken dinner? Oh, yeah! The supper included insanely massive portions! Check out the huge chicken plates Beth and Molly tried to eat!

Nicole managed to escape the office at the end of the day to join the rest of the OzTREKK team for dinner. During the meal, we were treated to door prizes, raffles, auctions, and awards. Notably, one of the OzTREKK teams won the prize for “Most Honest”—AKA really, really bad score! But hey, we’re honest, and the day was unforgettable.
