Social golfer Joyce de Bruin admires the new turf and the view. The works are part of the MGCs drive to improve the already popular course. Other projects underway include new fencing, new facilities for cart storage and a massive effort concreting cart tracks in heavy traffic areas… most of the work is done by willing volunteers.

BraveHearts at Maclean

Last Tuesday week (July 2), 16 Brave Hearts met at Maclean golf course for a sublime game of golf on the front nine.

Chocolate box hero this week was Bill Rourke (hcp 30) with 19 points after count-back from Gary Stockwell (hcp 28) on the same score. He snaffled the bottle of red with pleasure. Third equal prize-winners were Graham Cox (hcp 24), John Hunter (hcp 18) and John Grant (hcp 36) all on 17 points. The prizes distributed included Tartan Pizza meal, golf balls, and Yamba Cinema free pass.

Our Bradman award went to Marg Worroll (recently re-joining Maclean GC). Welcome back Marg we hope your new golf ball marker donated by Kay Grayson will serve you well and your score comes together.

NTP on the 2nd hole was won by Kay Grayson winning a monster box of shortbread. With her usual panache, she donated them back and 7th hole NTP sharpshooter Geoff Ryan swept them away with an obvious delight.

Next Tuesday we welcome all newcomers at 10am. Why don’t you join us for great fun on the fabulous Maclean golf course; check with pro shop for start times as a couple of big events scheduled over the next two weeks.
