The ‘Captains’ win at Yamba

Last Wednesday’s President (pink) v Captain (blue) round involved a happy field of 77 ladies.

With the ten best scores from each side being counted, the Captains’ team was declared the 2021 winner. Well done to the blues.

We were all blessed with perfect conditions for golf. After registering for the day, all participating players received their organza goodie bag containing a ball marker, tee, pencil, glass cleaning cloth, Roche-Posay 50+ sunscreen and a 10% discount voucher from Clarence Distillery. Having taken advantage of Scotty’s drinks on course, after their round the ladies enjoyed a sausage sizzle cooked by our resident volunteer chefs, Steve and Brian.


Winner of the Best Dressed prize was Denise Ginn who used her crafty skills by creating a beautiful pink number.
