golf fundraiser mswaikato

Michael Ford was a successful, dynamic business man whose world was turned upside down when he was diagnosed with MS at 36 years old.

Michael established our golf tournament 25 years ago, and has sadly since passed away.

This is an annual event and is taking place at Ngahinepouri Golf course on Friday 12th April.  We are seeking individuals or organisations who may be interested in sponsoring the event, and hopefully joining us on the day too.

We offer a wide range of sponsorship options.  The gold sponsorship which includes hole sponsorship and a team entry is very popular, this is $500.  All funds raised will remain in our region to assist with the provision of support services for those affected by Multiple Sclerosis or Huntington’s Disease.

The event includes morning tea, a sausage sizzle and soft drink on the course.  This is a stableford tournament, it is a fun day out and is open to players of all abilities with a great range of prizes to be won.

Register to play before the 28th March and early bird entry is only $45pp (registrations to be received in full), after this date the entry fee is $50pp.
