Queensland golfers are being asked to give back to the game they love with the launch of Golf Queensland’s new charity, the Queensland Golf Foundation.

The Queensland Golf Foundation is asking members of the golfing community to pitch in and help contribute to the future of golf in Queensland.

Participation and development of golf in Queensland is the focus of the Foundation with funds directed into three key areas:  Juniors, Ladies and Clubs.

Funds raised for these areas goes straight back into learn to play programs, talented player pathways and increased viability of the Queensland club network.

Golf Queensland Chairman, Peter Castrisos, said the Queensland Golf Foundation vision was to grow communities through golf.

“We want to share the game of golf with communities who may not have access to it and with people who never thought they could try it,” Mr Castrisos said.

 “Everyone should have the opportunity to play golf and experience the multitude of benefits that it offers such as fun, fitness, learning, perseverance, friendship and growth.”

“I’m urging everyone who loves the game to help us grow the game and the golfing community in Queensland by donating to the Queensland Golf Foundation.”

The Queensland Golf Foundation’s fundraising partner is the Australia Sports Foundation.  Donations are tax deductible and can be made either directly to the Queensland Golf Foundation page on the Australian Sports Foundation website (https://asf.org.au/organisation/golf-queensland/) or via the Donate Now button on the Queensland Golf Foundation website (http://www.qldgolffoundation.org.au/)
