They were ably assisted by Andrew McCormack the Professional at the club.

What a success!

The damp weather definitely didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the 19 ladies who participated.

The day began with a friendly, encouraging welcome and chat, followed by tuition on the basics of golf.

Andrew’s clear instructions were followed closely by all the ladies.

This was followed with the opportunity to implement these on the practise fairway under Andrew’s guidance.

Nervous giggles were replaced with “oohs and aahs” as they managed to connect the golf club and the ball.

Encouragement was given by all participants.

Next the ladies were taken in a convoy of golf carts to explore the golf course.

They were impressed with the beautiful surroundings and the peacefulness of the course.

To end the morning the ladies committee provided morning tea and a relaxed question time was held.

This gave the participants the opportunity to organise future golfing activities with other participants, the ladies committee and Andrew.

We are looking forward to seeing the ladies that took part in the program, and others, on the golf course to continue their involvement with golf.

Charity Golf Day

TUESDAY 20 October was the day for the HNGC ladies Charity golf day to support Breast and Ovarian Cancer.

The ladies dressed in pink or teal colours and enjoyed the drop out ambrose team event.

Some of the usual challenges of a golf game were eliminated by purchasing a 1 metre length of pink ribbon which could be used 3 times as a free shot to get a player out of trouble.

Ladies were able to pay the golf professional, Andrew, and the assistant professional, Beau, to hit their drive on the 9th tee.

A great job boys, the ladies were impressed.

Lots of laughs occurred on the 18th tee when our players fronted the ‘visiting ladies’ that, for a donation, hit over the dam.

We really appreciate the effort, time and good fun provided by the four men golfers that dressed for the occasion.

The raffles, lucky numbers and card sales that were held after the golf game were very well supported.

We are very pleased with the $1200 that was raised during the day.
