Winners and Grinners from a great week at Yamba including a Hole in One by Paul Atkins
Venue: Yamba Golf Club
Tournament Directors: John & Lee Daley
Dates: Aug 12 – 16, 2019
(The Yamba Vets celebrated their 20th anniversary this year in fine fashion).

Number of players:
A Maximum field for this week.
Total: 226 (all visitors); Men= 130; Ladies = 96; With the FULL HOUSE sign going up early! There were 90 clubs represented from all eastern states from north Queensland to Tasmania. The largest single contingent was from Maroochy Qld. ALL players were signed up members of the NSWVGA thanks to the local committee!
The players, throughout the week, enjoyed beautiful mild winter sunshine with temps in the low 20’s and mild breezes. The course had been prepared and presented in an excellent manner with a large Pro-Am preceding our event on the lead-up weekend.
The registration Sunday was again smoothly organised with 220 in attendance. Raffles, free drinks and fellowship were the order of the day. Committee members catered for every need of the visitors of which some 60+ were newbies to this event.
Playing time on day one was a little slower than the committee would have liked, however, the remainder of the tournament rounds were held in even or better time thanks to the many spotters, bunker rakers and player knowledge of the course. Afternoon rounds were starting 10 minutes early!
The committee decided to continue a drought-relief appeal started last year to support farmers who have been devastated over several years. A donation bucket was available all week for cash, with President Ian auctioning off his raffle winning fishing rod thus adding $100 to an already substantial total at the Presentation dinner.
Presentation Dinner: A “full-house” of 247 enjoyed an efficiently organised prize presentation and two course meal. The local mayor, several major sponsors and their wives, together with special guests enjoyed the hospitality of “Team Daley” and incoming “Team Starr”. 87 prizes were awarded for the week’s play thanks to the support of almost sixty local sponsoring business houses. Raffles and 100 clubs were drawn quickly much to the delight of the winners in the auditorium.
Summary: “Team Daley,” after six years organising this event, will hand over to “Team Starr” who will benefit from the wonderful example and level of planning developed and implemented by their predecessors. John & Lee are responsible for building this into the largest single-course WoG event held outside daylight savings time. They should be proud of their magnificent achievements over these years and raising the Yamba event to its current prominence and level of desirability by veteran golfers.
Congratulations John & Lee on your remarkable achievements over the years. Yamba Golf Club’s President also recognized their accomplishments and presented them with a plaque.
The list of this year’s winners and 2020 Yamba program will be published on the net.
