2018 Ian Barbato Memorial Day at the Kew Country Club

About 100 golfers met at Kew Country Club for the 14th annual Ian Barbato “Bato” Memorial Golf Day on Sunday, August 5.

A shotgun start started the four person ambrose competition at 7.30am.

The winners for 2018 were Daniel Trompert, Jason Balaam, Sam Ward and Daniel Morgan.

Over $4000 was raised at the event for the Kendall Riding for the Disabled Association.

Ian Barbato was a well-known community icon who suddenly passed away in 2004.

Ian loved to combine a good yarn with an adventure on the golf course. In his honour many of his friends and family gather at Kew each year to remember a great man. 

All funds raised from the event will be donated to Kendall Riding for the Disabled Association.

The ‘Bato’ Golf Day has become one of the best social golfing days that the Camden Haven community supports. In the past the event has helped to raise over $24,000 for the cause.
