Millbrook Resort, 01 December 2022
The sun was shining at Millbrook Resort as 108 golfers in 27 teams fiercely competed in the sell-out WHS Foundation Annual Golf Tournament. Whilst there was no lucky winner on the $50,000 Crombie Lockwood Hole in One Competition, golfers did enjoy playing the sponsored hole games including Whip the Whippersnapper with the WHS junior golfers, Speed golf, Pay the Pro, Closest to the pin, and Longest drive.
A big thank you to all our golfers and sponsors!
We are pleased to share that together, we raised over $45,000!!! These funds will benefit all WHS students through the $450,000 in initiatives the WHS Foundation is funding in 2023.

We would also like to acknowledge the hard work of our Friends of the WHS Foundation who assisted our team - Executive Officer Mia McGregor, Trustee Karen Spires, and Office Administrator Carolyn Rooney, to organize the event and volunteered on the day.

Our Annual Golf Tournament would not be possible without the support and generosity of all involved. Thank you!
