Living Choice was a proud sponsor of the annual Headland Veteran Golfers’ tournament, the ‘Living Choice Classic’, continuing its tradition of sponsoring the prestigious event for the past 14 years. 170 Veteran golfers representing 22 Veteran Golfing organisations, travelled from all over Queensland to play a total of 410 games over three days.
Sunday’s event was a ‘Shotgun Start’, Medley 4BBB Stableford, followed by a “Welcome BBQ”.
