Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club Results

Winners are grinners!


WITH a little rain during the week, the Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club course has come up a treat with good grass finally returning to the fairways and the greens have been sensational – perfect conditions for our annual ‘Island Classic’ which attracted 31 visitors, including a large returning contingent from Armidale/Uralla.

Luckily for everyone, the threatened rain event for the weekend turned out to be a bit of a fizzler – at Nambucca anyway!

On Tuesday 26 October, the Mid North Coast played a Medley Stableford – results on their website.

The Women played an Irish Stableford on Wednesday 27 October.

The winners were Lyn Parkes, Robyn Jones, Dianne O’Leary and Talia Donovan. Runners up were Jennifer Ainsworth, Dorothy Bunyan, Kay McGoldrick and Suzanne O’Donnell.

NTP’s went to Robyn Dyer on 5, Deidre Byrne got the Pizza voucher on 13 and Narelle Delaney on 18.

Thursday 28 October was our monthly ‘Dolphin Day’ Open Medley Stableford sponsored by Nambucca RSL and Midstate Financial Services (Stuart Garvey).
