Blair Gibson, one of the Pro-Shop staff, by having one of the Ladies shave-off his beard, raised over $300, which he donated to Tuesday’s Ladies Ovarian Charity golf day. Jo White, Ladies’ President commented, “playing golf, especially on such a beautiful day is always fun. When the activity is linked to fund-raising, particularly cancer-related, then there is an extra incentive to participate, with opportunities for everyone to help raise the maximum funds possible. Money raised will help ease pressure on families, impacted by this cancer and treatment. Thank you to all the players and Blair for helping us raise a total in excess of $800.”

Highlights of the week:

Saturday, Nelson Bay hosted the Ladies 3 Club Swing event attracting players from Charlestown, Horizons, Merewether and Nelson Bay.
