And it is not your usual one day event, but a more than one month-long match play tournament involving at least 32 golfers.

They are called the 'Well Out' and play golf not only for fitness and fun, but for charitable causes too.

And it is not your usual one day event, but a more than one month-long match play tournament involving at least 32 golfers.

A waitress at the Uganda Golf Club regained her sight, a child with a hole in the heart also benefited from the group's generosity while a man that required a kidney transplant is also now up and about following the group's 'kind heart.'

"As golfers, we must remember to help people who don't have the opportunity to enjoy the life that we enjoy and help them; and we have agreed to continue raising money from such tournaments,"

"Over the period of time, the turnover from such collection has been sh11m which we have passed on to different individuals," Sabiiti Bagaine the treasurer of the group said.

Every evening when they meet at the golf club the members of the group contribute small amounts of money which they also pool together and later donate to charity after it has accumulated.

Suresh Patel and Anthony Agaba sponsored the previous editions while the Serena edition was sponsored by Moses Matsiko of Pinnacle Security next one will be sponsored by Babu Namulimisa at Tororo Golf Club.
