IT’S BACK: Golfing for a good cause gets go ahead

FRASER COAST Mates President Darren Bosley was worried the organisation's annual golf day for mental health might not have gone ahead due to the coronavirus crisis.

The easing of restrictions however means the event can proceed on November 6.

The event raises awareness about suicide and mental health by getting people together for a day of golf and chatting with mates.

Mr Bosley said 120 players across 34 teams had already signed on.

"We've never had so many teams book so quickly," he said.

Mr Bosley said it was difficult for people to open up their feelings but the golf course provided an environment to save lives through conversation.

Teams for the golf day can be booked here.
