Hawks Nest ladies golf

Winners N. Hansen, T. Hopley, J. Ervin, M. Lowry from Foster Tuncurry


On Friday 14th July the Hawks Nest Ladies hosted their annual Open day with 144 ladies playing from various clubs in NSW all playing an Irish team event. The day day began at 7.30 am with morning tea held on front decking of the Golf Club with a temperature of only 9 degrees so hot coffee and teas were most welcome as well as two hot dishes and lots of other goodies.

At 8.30 am with a shot gun start the game began. As well as NTPs and Longest Drives this year we held a Golden Shot on the short 10th Hole,

Par 3 with a $2.00 entry fee and winner NTP to win $100. The lucky and clever lady on the day was Margaret Pearson from Merewether.

By 9.30 am the weather had warmed up and by lunchtime it was a lovely 21 degrees with a beautiful sunny and warm winters day a great time was had by all.

We also welcomed Tracy Thomas & Pierce Collits from their new shop in Hawks Nest (Hunter Care Equipment). They were our main sponsors for the day and brought along a selection of items from their shop, some as donations for us to sell and also to show just what they have in stock.

All very handy items to make life easier for the older generation.

I personally was quite taken with the tilting hot water jug and press button can opener. Our other sponsor the year was Luck Love Design who have an on-line site (www.locklovedesign.com) and sell lovely unique individual ladies clothing.

This year the raffle consisted of two large boxes of goodies worth $200 and $150 respectively. Proceeds from this raffle go towards buying trophies for the ladies presentation and sub-sidizing our Christmas

luncheon, so we much appreciate all those who bought tickets this year.

Congratulations go to all team winners (4 x teams) as well to those who won other prizes.

Thanks of course go to the Pro Shop for all their help, the Green staff who keep our course in excellent condition, the Restaurant for the lunches, the cafe making mostly hot coffees and teas, the bar staff who are always kept busy with a smile for everyone, all helpers on the day as well as the ladies committee. Lastly not forgetting the ladies who made the morning teas and got up early to bring it along, well done
