ON Sunday 14 April a fundraiser was held at the Nambucca Island Golf Club for local golfer Darcy Habgood.

Darcy, 24, moved to Nambucca in 2017 with her family.

Darcy, whose father is the local Golf Pro, has played golf all her life and got her 1st handicap when she was just ten years old.

She has played golf in every state in Australia representing the QLD state team from 2014 – 2016 and the NSW state team from 2018.

In 2019 Darcy was recruited by an Australian coach and offered the opportunity to play in the USA.

Darcy isn’t legally able to work in the USA so she comes back to Australia in the off season and has been working to assist with future travel costs associated with playing professional golf.

At the end of May Darcy will return to the USA ready to continue her dream of playing in the professional circuit.

Thanks to the generosity of the 125 players and local businesses the day raised $4000 to assist Darcy.

The day was put on to help assist Darcy with the costs associated with starting out in a professional golf career.

As she heads over to America to hopefully gain some starts on the Epson Tour (Tour below the main LPGA Tour), where she has a limited start status, these funds can help to alleviate travel and accommodation costs.

The bulk of players on the day were local members, however, there were some players from Kempsey and Coffs Harbour.
