Traralgon ladies draw big crowd for annual Pink Day

The Traralgon Golf Club Ladies held its annual Pink Day recently, with 84 players gathering to take part in the fundraising event.

Clubs from across Gippsland were represented on the day with all proceeds donated to the Breast Cancer Awareness Network.

The Ambrose event expanded last year to include men and Traralgon Golf Club ladies’ captain Harmana Woolcock said the event, now in its sixth year of operation, was a resounding success.

“The day went very well and all the players dressed in some pink,” Woolcock said.

“Some of the men put on tutus, women wore funny pink hats and wigs and they were all very supportive and happy to be playing for the cause.

“The greens were decorated with pink flags and tee markers and the club house was decorated with pink tablecloths and pink balloons … everything was pink orientated. We even baked pink cakes and sweets.”

With many members at Traralgon impacted by breast cancer, Woolcock said the idea to host a Pink Day was a no-brainer.

“The members of the Traralgon Golf Club are members of the local community [too] so it’s important to us all,” she said.

“It defines who we are and we are aware that we are more fortunate than many.”
