BENDIGO golfers are set to tee-off for a good cause later this month.

The inaugural Big Hit Charity Golf Day is attracting several of the region’s golfers, including Barzurk restaurant owner Matt Connolly.

All the money raised from the four-ball ambrose event will be put towards the Sidney Myer Haven project, which aims to break the cycle of homelessness in Bendigo.

Connolly, a keen golfer, said it was a no brainer for him to get involved.

“I thought it would be nice to be a part of an event that aims to try and raise money for a great cause,” he said.  

“Haven is trying to do great work for the community, helping people that are homeless and that are underprivileged.

“I think it is one thing that Bendigo does really well; the community really gets together and donates their time, money and energy into trying to fundraise to help people who are less fortunate and don’t have has much.”

The Big Hit Charity Golf Day will be held on May 16 at the Bendigo Golf Course at 11am.

As part of the fundraiser, Connolly has also donated a series of dinner and wine packages that will go towards the the evening’s auction, which will be hosted by AFL great Peter 'Crackers' Keenan. 

Prizes will also be up for grabs throughout the day of play.
