Get on board for the $4000 Heli Drop

BYRON Bay Golf Club will host the Byron Bay Rotary Heli Drop this Sunday.

It's an exciting event and a massive fund raiser for Westpac Helicopter Service and the local community with Rotary helping support the Bravehearts program in our local schools.

The Heli Drop will also provide support to others in need including the Byron Women's SHIFT Project (who help women needing emergency accommodation) and students at Byron Bay High School. The day includes an Ambrose Golf Game with tee off at 10am.

At 4pm a helicopter from our local RotorWing Helicopter Services will fly up the 9th fairway to drop 750 golf balls with the ball landing nearest the flag can win up to $4000 in prize money.

There will also be a plenty of other prizes raffled off after the game with local busnesses donating to help out the local community including:
