Wayne Riley Legends Pro Am to return to Hurstville Golf Course

13 Oct 2016

Georges River Council will be hosting the Wayne Riley Legends Pro Am Golf Tournament at the Hurstville Golf Course on Friday 18 November 2016.
 
The event, proudly sponsored by 11 clubs from across the local area and offering a prize of $15,000, is expected to attract some of Australia’s top golfing professionals.
 
Administrator of Georges River Council, John Rayner, said he was pleased to see the golf tournament return to Hurstville Golf Course.
 
“Previously organised by the former Hurstville City Council, I am delighted that Georges River Council can now host this fantastic golfing event,” he said.
 
“As with previous years, all money raised from this event will be donated to the Cancer Care Centre at the St George Hospital.
 
“This is a great opportunity to support a fantastic local facility which helps people every year.
 
“It is also a great chance to play alongside and watch some of Australia’s top golfing professionals.”
 
Mr Rayner said Hurstville Golf Course offers first class facilities and has produced internationally renowned professionals over the years including Wayne ‘Radar’ Riley who has graciously lent his name for the event.
 
“Having played around the world representing Australia, including in the World Cup, Wayne is now regarded as one of the world’s leading golf commentators on Sky Sports,” he said.
 
“A wonderful ambassador for promoting the sport throughout our community, Hurstville Golf Course is where he developed his passion for golf and can be seen regularly playing on the course to this day.”
 
Mr Rayner said he would like to extend his thanks and appreciation to Club Central, Club Rivers, St George Leagues Club, St George Motor Boat Club, South Hurstville RSL, Penshurst RSL, Mortdale RSL, Kogarah RSL, Oatley RSL, Grandviews, and St George Maso’s for their sponsorship of the event which will help in raising funds for the Cancer Care Centre.
 
“Clubs across the local area are renowned for their contributions to the Georges River community, and the sponsorship for the event by these organisations is a great example of their generosity,” he said.
