MORE than 100 golfers have gathered together on the green for a game that was guaranteed to have a good outcome.

Win or lose, the players raised much needed funds for Give Me 5 for Kids with a charity golf day, at the weekend.

The Sea FM Wide Bay event aimed to top its fundraising total from last year of $39,000.

South Cross Austereo promotions manager Jo Martin hoped they were right on target to achieve their goal.

"Probably about $40,000, but not 100% sure," Ms Martin said.

"We're going really, really well, everyone's having fun."

The event cost $150 per team with 110 payers competing; funds raised will go to the Bundaberg Hospital's children's ward.

"Last year we did heaps of little events whereas this year we've focused on doing a couple of big events and a few smaller ones," Ms Martin said.

The charity golf day will be followed by a trivia night this Friday at the RSL. For more details, visit Give Me 5 for Kids Facebook page or phone Austereo on 4155 4333.
