Results 5 to 11 March
NELSON Bay Golf Club hosted a round of the Australian National Police Championships on Thursday 9 March.
The call went out from the Club for volunteers to help the Visitors negotiate some of the more difficult holes.
Great to see one of the locals, Mr K, getting involved and using his knowledge on where balls could be found.
Highlights of the week
Congratulations to Graham Allan for his Eagle on the 358 metre, Par 4, 9th hole.
Congratulations to Christopher Dunn with a score of 43, Saturday’s C1 B grade Winner.
