Going for gold! Golf Event


Swing into Spring at our inaugural Ballarat Men’s Mental Health (BMMH) Golf Day on Friday 12 November, to be held at the Ballarat Gold Club. Up to 100 keen golfers will vie for the coveted ‘Gold Jacket’ as they putt, drive and dribble their way across the course in aid of local mental health support.

With a shotgun start at 12 noon, participants can pre-fuel at a barbecue beginning at 11am. And, as 18 holes is definitely thirsty work, a drinks cart will sell drinks on-course to those in need. Come on your own or gather your buddies to have a fun day out where there is sure to be much laughter, a few tears and, dare we say it, a bit of colorful language as the odd shot goes astray. Just don’t be surprised if you get ‘fined’!

The Ballarat Golf Club is well-known for its popular RUOK Golf Day and this year has chosen to throw its support behind BMMH to help raise awareness of this vital initiative. The Club’s goal is to help recruit 2,000 ongoing, $2-a-week, donors to help pay for mental health support staff at BMMH. It’s this kind of community support that will influence the government to put its weight – and funding – behind the BMMH initiative.

The day’s frivolities will continue at an after-function, to be held at The Heritage at 15 Lydiard Street North, commencing around 5.30-6.00pm. Drinks will be at bar prices and delicious finger food will be supplied at around $30 per head. There will be raffles, door prizes and trophies presented on the night, not to mention awarding of the coveted and prestigious Gold Jacket to the day’s ‘winners are grinners’ player. Come along and join us and be part of the change – it may help someone you love.

Obviously, this event could be affected by any COVID-19 restrictions put in place at the time.
