Charity tournament into its 41st year of fun and fundraising
ABOUT 265 golfers will take part in the annual Brown and Hurley charity golf tournament at Kyogle.
Competition starts today with the event now running for the 41st year.
There has been a changing of the guard this year with Kevin Hurley taking over from his brother, Jim, who had run the tournament since its inception.
"I think everything will run all right; we have full fields both days," Kevin aid.
"It really is the people who support this event that make it what it is.
"It's a social competition but at the same time everyone wants to win it."
Money from the event this year will go to several good causes: the Kyogle Lions Club, State Emergency Service, Kyogle Youth Ventures, Kyogle Brass Band and Cancer Council.
Funds will also go towards a project at the golf club and play equipment at a local pre-school.
"It's great to give something back to the community and we should make in excess of $20,000," Hurley said.
"We have suppliers and customers from all across the east coast of Australia that make the effort to come here."
A sponsors dinner will be held at the club tonight with the presentation to take place tomorrow afternoon.
