Hawks Nest Ladies Golf

Pennants team 2024.

TUESDAY’S event was a very popular 2 person Ambrose, with an excellent field of 70 ladies taking part.

Players had been encouraged to mix things up a little by playing with someone different, perhaps ladies they had rarely or never played with before. The huge turn out helped make this a fun filled morning out on the course, getting to know some new faces and even some new skills. Our ladies obviously found the mild, overcast morning to their liking too, with low scores reflecting the hot competition. Many teams stayed on to have lunch together before the presentation, so all in all this proved to be a very successful social round of competition.

38th Annual Hawks Nest Ladies Classic 2024

The Classic is a hugely popular fixture on the golfing calendar each year. Our major sponsor is First National Real Estate Hawks Nest, and we thank them for their continuing support.

The tournament began as a fundraiser for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter 38 years ago, and continues to raise valuable funds to support this worthy charitable service. The Rescue Helicopter is a great asset to all residents and visitors to our community, and Hawks Nest golfers regularly raise money to help it continue operating.

Competition in the Ladies Classic is played over 2 days, Monday 4th & Tuesday 5th March 2024.

Bookings opened online on November 27th at 3pm and not surprisingly, it was booked out within 5 hours. Numbers have been capped at 260 players, the large field requiring an early and a late tee off. So popular is this event that many ladies were disappointed to miss the intake, having played before and wanting to make it an annual event in their golfing calendar.

Players are coming from far and wide, for example from Norfolk Island, Victoria, many from Sydney clubs, Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, the central coast, mid north coast and the north coast. The event begins on Sunday afternoon with a meet and greet function, this year including a fashion parade with golf gear by Redback Clothing provided by Helen Haynes. The information session coincides with our super Sunday social golf event, with live music, monster raffles and a members draw.

Each day’s play begins with morning tea from 6.30 till 10.30am, provided by our lady members who volunteer to cook, sell raffle tickets, provide information, and any other support our visiting players may need. There is also an Event Dinner at the golf club on Monday night, this year themed as Let’s Get Tropical.

We hope everyone enjoys The Hawks Nest Ladies Golf Classic for 2024. Results will be published in next week’s NOTA.
