Jennifer Fagan picks up A Grade Medal

Forty four lady professional golfers have registered to play at Yamba on Friday, March 4. Spaces are still available for amateurs should you wish to play. The shoot-out will be contested by ladies only and will take place on the 10th tee once all golfers have finished their rounds. If you are not playing, come along anyway and watch some exciting golf. Later this year there will be a Ladies Holden Scramble qualifier at Yamba. Teams will consist of four players and all handicapped golfers are eligible. Our professional, John, expects to have entry forms available sometime this week, so call in and see him to enter this new event.
