More than 1000 golf balls were dropped from a helicopter above Steeline Ray Menzies Oval for Ocean Grove Football Netball Club’s major fundraiser.

In a closest to the pin competition, more than $10,000 in prizes were on offer with Waz and Pip Jankiwski’s number 259 golf ball taking out first prize.

The chopper dropped 1137 golf balls on Saturday April 27 at the Ocean Grove vs Modewarre footy and netball games.

Ocean Grove Cobras (pictured) players immediately set about retrieving the golf balls so the senior footy match could begin.

Modda won the footy, but the Grubbers won the netball.
