Mercy Health Foundation — Golf Day 2022

We are pleased to announce that Mercy Health Foundation will be hosting a Golf Day on Tuesday 11 October 2022 at Kingston Heath Golf Course.

The Golf Day aims to raise vital funds to support Mercy Perinatal. Opened on 5 November 2016, Mercy Perinatal has built a reputation as a leader in the care of high risk pregnancies. Based at Mercy Hospital for Women, the internationally renowned centre of excellence provides clinical care, education and research.

By sponsoring, you are supporting the crucial work of Mercy Perinatal to bring mothers and babies safely home. You will also have the opportunity to connect with our supporters, employees, and like-minded people who believe in the work of Mercy Health.

There are both ‘Golf Play’ and ‘Non-Playing’ sponsorship options available. So, whether you’re looking to get your team of avid-golfers together for a day of friendly competition, or are just looking to promote your organisation, there is something for everyone.

On the day, all players will be invited to take part in a number of additional exciting competitions by purchasing a game-day wristband. Some of these include:

  • $20,000 hole-in-one: $10,000 holiday voucher for the winner and a $10,000 donation to Mercy Perinatal
  • $1,000 hole-in-one holiday voucher
  • Nearest to the pin
  • Longest drive
