From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you all for the outstanding turn out at Oakridge Golf Club on Monday 29th June to say farewell to Club President, Syd Fryer.
Due to the ongoing pandemic we didn't know what to expect as we arrived at the Golf Club and we were absolutley blown away by the outpouring of support and respect as Syd took his final journey around the golf course.
This is something that will be etched in our memories for the rest of our lives and we feel highly honoured to have been a part of it.
