SHIPPING industry legend, the late Phil Kelly, is to be recognised with a day of golf in Melbourne’s picturesque Waterford Valley.
The Phil Kelly OAM Perpetual Golf Challenge is to form the basis of the 2018 Shipping Australia (Victoria) Golf Day and is to be held on Wednesday March 28.
It is to take place at the scenic Waterford Valley Golf Course, Knoxfield.
Mr Kelly, who died early last year at the age of 88, was an industry legend and long-serving secretary of the Shipping Australia Victoria branch.
He was also inducted into the Australian Maritime Industry Hall of Fame at the 2016 Australian Maritime Awards organised by Lloyd’s List Australia (now the DCN).
The golf day is to be a four ball ambrose format.
Registration and a light lunch are to be held at 11.30am with a shotgun start at 12.30pm.
