NSW Veteran Golfers Supporting Drought Relief

Travelling Veteran golfers playing at the recent Yamba Week of Golf donate $820 to support local farmers. Shown here is a cheque being handed to Dianne Wilson, President of the Clarence Valley Quota Club, who via the Quota Club at Parkes, will oversee its placement to the needy in the Parkes district. The local Post Office has wavered all costs associated with the purchase of the visa cards. This is further to donations from other WOG such as Moruya on the Lower South Coast.

Michael's Hole In One Tura August 2018

A very happy WOG Veteran Michael Bungey Queanbeyan GC who achieved his first Hole In One on the Par 3 153m Third hole at Tura Beach Country Club during the Far South Coast WOG last Friday. Witnessed by playing partner and NSWVGA rep Stu Dossetor. We saw the ball hit the green and then lost it only after searching to look and see it in the hole. Locals commented that it was not an easy hole to achieve a Hole in one. Well done Michael.

Important notice to Tournament Directors

Members like to see the timely placement of WOG results on the website. It has not been unusual for NSWVGA reps at WOG to be 'asked' why the results have not been placed on the web. To assist TD to meet players expectations we have developed a standardised format. See "WOG Results Template" under Policy/Guidelines tab above.

The Australian Over Eighty Golf Championship for Men and Women concluded at Harrington Waters Golf Club last Thursday. The Championship was played over 27 Holes. Nine holes played each day.
The Men's Champion was Arthur Shepherd from Bonville Golf Club with 31 stableford points, holding off last year's winner Ken Madden (Merewether) with 28 points.
The Ladies Champion was Betty Andrews (Kew Country Club) with 24 points from Mary Gleeson (Tallwoods Golf Club) with 11 points. This was the third year Betty had won.
In the net division local golfer Vic Winter from Harrington Waters, off a handicap of 34 won with 57 points from Ocean Shores golfer Ken Bradford (35) on 56 points.
The ladies net winner was Audrey Crow (36) from Forster-Tuncurry with 46 points pipping our very own Joan Fleming (32) with 45 points.
All the golfers commented on the excellent condition of the course and thoroughly enjoyed the three days of golf and entertainment provided by Harrington Waters. Members went out of their way to assist these elderly players, with at least one accompanying each group and others 'spotting' for any wayward balls. Most of the golfers tell us they will be back next year, health permitting.
The Club was indebted to the excellent support of our local community especially Anglican Care, Harrington Hotel, Manning Great Lakes Skin Cancer Clinic, the Mid Coast Automotive Group and Professionals Harrington.
