“We had a great time at the tournament.  We hadn’t been to Murwillumbah before and just loved the beauty of it.  And we loved the golf course – so scenic and interesting.  And we thought the tournament was definitely one of the best organised we have been to.  We appreciated the newsletters beforehand and all the effort that went into it – the nibbles and band on Sunday; the presentation on Tuesday and the dinner/music on Friday.  We will be telling everyone we know that they should come next year!”

The Week Of Golf 2014 has been Run and Won

Our sixth Week Of Golf has just concluded. We were blessed with the weather, having a week of cloudless skies, brisk early mornings and warm sunny days. This was the sixth Week of Golf to be played at Murwillumbah.

On average 152 players coming from 65 Clubs (NSW, Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania and New Zealand) took part each of the four days on which must be one of the most picturesque courses on the North Coast. There was quite a bit of run on the Course due to the fact that there has been no rain for a few weeks and a couple of early morning frosts a week or so ago.

The Green Staff has been busy putting in a new irrigation system around Tees and Greens, which will be completed in another month. This work was treated as GUR and did not impact at all on the general play.

A special thanks to all the Murwillumbah Veterans who kept play moving by being Spotters and Bunker Rakers around the Greens. Thanks also to our Lolly Sheriff who was ‘hot on the heels’ of slow play with the enticement of a ‘sugar hit’.

Prizes were awarded at the Presentation Dinner on Friday Evening with Ian Vidler (NSWVGA Vice President) in attendance.

The Winner of the NSWVGA Men’s Shield was Bryan Connor from Port Kembla with a total of 77pts c/b. The Winner of the NSWVGA Ladies’ Shield was Anne McGregor from The Coast, with a total of 71pts.

The full list of each day’s competition can be viewed on this Murwillumbah Veterans, dedicated Website.  Click on the drop down menu for Week Of Golf 2014.
