Geraldton Golf Club was full of colour and football memorabilia on Saturday for the Harry Taylor and Geelong Football Club Golf Day.
One-hundred players tackled the Wonthella layout in an Ambrose competition.
Prizes for the day included Taylor’s 100th game ball signed by his Geelong teammates, Andrew Mackie’s signed football boots and a GNFL Country Week jumper signed by all the Mid West players in the AFL at the moment.
Taylor said the tournament was well received and he would definitely continue the annual event.
“I put about six months of planning into the event this year and I think it was well received,” he said.
“Hopefully in the future I can get some other players to come along and make a big day and night out of it.”
Taylor teamed with friend Lyndsay Ryan for the day and played Geraldton’s Tony Viner and Ryan Kneale for the 50-cent cup.
The Geelong backman said the battle of the two pairings was a tradition.
“We play for the 50-cent cup each year and Lyndsay and I finally got it back after losing it two years in a row,” he said.
“I shot 34 points so was not the worst out there.”
Kim Giudice-Nairn won the day, with an impressive 43 points.
He was the recipient of the framed GNFL jumper autographed by all the current AFL players to have come through the Geraldton league.
Adrian Herring, Pierre Najar, Bill Headley and Terry Bromley won their respective grades.
It was not long before the footballs were brought out and competitors had a long kicking competition.The longest footy kick off the ninth tee was won by Rod Bickell for the over-50s and Ben Cullaton for the under-50s.
