NAB Warwick golf charity day coming up
GOLF: Six NAB teams will be playing in the annual charity golf day on Sunday to support the Warwick Dementia Support Group.
Co-organiser Paul Swift said the teams on Sunday would include NAB regional manager Craig Armstrong, from Toowoomba, and Jenny Meara, from the Clifton branch, as well as NAB staff from Warwick.
"The Dementia Support Group has been the charity for our NAB golf day for the past five years and we are supporting them again,” he said.
Away from the organisation of the day, Swift is looking forward to one of his three golf days a year.
"I play in the NAB Charity Day, Police Legacy and one other charity day,” he said.
He lists his short game, chipping and putting, as his strong point.
"I don't drive the ball straight enough and end up with a ball on Hawker Rd or Weewondilla Rd in most rounds I play,” he said.
"I slice a lot of my drives to the right but I can get more than 200 metres in distance.”
If the drive ends up out of bounds, he loses one shot and drives again.
Swift said his best shot at the Warwick Golf Club was when he was nearest the pin on the 11th two years ago in the NAB day.
NAB Warwick branch manager Jordan Schwarz will be playing for the second time.
"I first played two years ago, I like the ambrose format as the team hits their next shot from the best position,” she said.
"I love having a crack and being involved in the community.”
Before taking on her once a year round of golf, Schwarz said her go to sport was touch footy.
Players are welcome to sign up for the four-ball ambrose which will start at noon Sunday with a shotgun start.
There will be a multi-draw raffle and cash boards on the day to help raise funds for the dementia support group.
There will be a prize for the best all ladies group.
NAB has organised a charity day for the past three decades and Swift said the forecast Sunday temperature of 26 degrees would be perfect for golf.
