The annual golf day was held at Green Acres Golf Club in Kew on Friday March 22 on a beautiful sunny day. The individual event was won by Dr David Olive, with the runner-up being Dr Ian Balson. David will now have his name on the Doyle/O’Sullivan Cup along with all the other winners since 1935. The win was very popular as David is a long-time supporter of the event and has been the event convenor for several years. David is pictured below alongside the Association’s stalwart administrator/secretary, Ms Sue Mabilia, who presented the Cup to him.
Thanks to generous sponsorship from Doquile Perrett Meade Financial Services, St. Vincent’s Pathology, Zouki Catering and the St Vincent’s Senior Medical Staff Association, there were other prizes on offer. The best combined group score was won by the combination of Ian Balson, Bill Connell, Simon Jones and David Olive while Michael Yii won the straightest drive and one of the nearest the pin prizes. The second nearest the pin prize was won by Alex Poon.
We were delighted to see some of our younger members present and we thank St Vincent’s Hospital and their clinical supervisors for giving them the time off to participate in this wonderful event.
For all golfers, please note in your diary that the date for next year’s event is Friday 20th March 2020.
