Great deeds from Australian golfers

Many of the best Australian golfers will be returning home over the next month to play in tournaments and do their bit for some very worthwhile causes. It’s easy to forget what these guys do when they’re not playing golf – some don’t get the press they deserve. Here’s just a few of them.

Robert Allenby has been supporting the Challenge Organisation for many years – a support service for kids with cancer. He’s raised millions for this organisation over the years and took a whole load of kids over to the US this year to hang out and introduce them to Tiger Woods. The Robert Allenby Golf Day is being held at Woodlands in December this year – get involved.

Mathew Goggin lends his support to a foundation in his name (Mat Goggin Foundation) that aims to provide financial support for young Tasmanians who are community building. Mat will be at the Golf Swing and Supper Club in Hobart in November for the foundation’s big fundraising event.

Stuart Appleby lends his support to young Victorian golfers through the Stuart Appleby Junior Golf organisation. They have a whole load of junior golf days planned and Stuart is heavily involved in events each time he’s back in the country. This year is no exception.
Adam Scott
helps out disadvantaged, underprivileged kids through the philanthropic Adam Scott Foundation. A whole load of fundraising events are planned during the Queensland PGA Championship held in early November.
