Local Golfing Legends

Introducing the Apia Local Legends – the Golf Series. Apia has scoured the country to find and celebrate some Local Legends with great stories to tell, passion for the game of golf and their club. Golf is one of the most popular sports in Australia and is a great way to stay active and social in retirement. There are many ways to get involved in the sport, through membership at your local golf club, joining Golf Australia’s Get into Golf program, volunteering at or attending one Golf Australia’s events through the year or just catching up with friends at the driving range for a hit.
