Macksville Country Club Ladies Bowls

2024 Carnival 1st place. Brian Tarrant, Lynne Tarrant, Helen Hoffman and Jo Bathgate (Urunga).

THE 2024 season started on the 24th January in rather warm and humid weather.

We played three weeks of social bowls before our Annual carnival which was held on February 14th.

The carnival attracted a field of 14 teams with 4 in each team coming from 10 different clubs in our zone.

Each team playing 2 morning games and 1 afternoon game to try and score maximum points.

1st: Brian Tarrant, Lynne Tarrant ,Helen Hoffman & Jo Bathgate from Urunga.

2nd: Dawn Grebert, Karen Lewis, Graeme Campbell & Joe Grebert (Sawtell)

3rd: Manor Smith, Bill Coughlan, Margaret Flagg, Brendan Ruane ( Nambucca Heads)

4th: Ruth Flarrety, Gail Griffiths, Janet Poletti (Macksville) & Neil Pollard (Bowraville).

Afternoon winners were Christine Keogh, Denise Walsh, Lyndy McLeod & Val Slater (Park Beach)

Well done to all players on making it through a very hot day.


The club Championship Singles final was played last week between Kaye Wood and Ruth Flarrety, both first time finalists.

The game was close for quite a number of ends before Kaye finally took a strong lead to be the first to 25 points.

Social bowls are played each Wednesday morning for anyone interested in learning to play this great game.

Visitor enquiries can be made by contacting the club 65681400.
