Big Thanks to everyone who participated in the Quiksilver Foundation Golf Day!
Glades Golf Course Gold Coast (Wednesday February 27 2013), Eleven time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater was the highlight participant on the Golf Course today as he joined a field of 124 who played for fun and charity at the annual Quiksilver Foundation Golf Classic.
“I arrived on the Gold Coast yesterday and managed to get a two hour surf in this morning so now I’m in for a round of golf which is a game I enjoy.” Golf is a passion of Slater and he plays off an impressive handicap of 4.
A few passing heavy showers did not deter the players at all with the course playing conditions best described as soggy.
This year's Quiksilver Foundation Golf Classic raised funds for two organizations, Surfrider Foundation and The Gold Coast Suns No Boundaries program.
The Surfrider Foundation project is centered around an initiative aimed at Gold Coast coastal management of the surf breaks.
The No Boundaries project being undertaken by the Gold Coast Suns Australian Football League Team aims to help those located in remote communities of the Northern Peninsula Area of Australia.
