NTP went to Mary.

Thanks to Kathy Parker who has organised Saturday mornings for the last eight years. She handed over to Mary Hogan who thought her new role just involved spreadsheets, which she loves. Anyway, surprise surprise, and thank you Mary for a fabulous rundown of our year’s highlights. Thanks too to Jenny Moody for her thoughtful gift of specially printed golf balls for everyone. As usual there were lots of laughs.

Our printed golf balls.

Numbers continue to grow and provide an avenue for those who would like an extra game and those who work during the week (or go to school). Everyone is welcome.

With the conclusion of the Yamba ladies golfing calendar, our summer competition commences this Friday.
