Men of League charity day hits home

GOLF

The 11th annual 'Men of League' Illawarra golf day will tee-off on Friday at Kiama Golf Club.

The event gives punters the opportunity to play a round with a Men of League legend, with all proceeds from the event going to the charity.

A total of 140 players will hit the greens around Kiama, joining former Steelers coach Ron Hilditch and greats Bill Bradstreet, Wayne Springall and Les Hanigan.

In addition to the veterans, modern day State of Origin players Shaun Timmins, Ben Hornby and Dean Young will be on the fairways.

"They will all be down there for the day," Men of League Illawarra President Peter Fitzgerald said.

"We like to move it around to different courses to give everyone a chance to host it.

"It is a charity day of course - it is not a corporation day," Fitzgerald said.

Men of League was established more than a decade ago to help people in the rugby league community who have fallen on difficult times.

All spots have been booked out for Friday's golf day, with players to tee-off from 8am and finish up around 3pm.
