Results Murwillumbah Week Of Golf

A very successful Week Of Golf has just completed at Murwillumbah Golf Course.

In total there were 223 entries in total over the 4 days, with 23 players withdrawing before the event either because of ill health, unforeseen family commitments or injuries sustained whilst on tour.

The weather was great the first two days, but Wednesday Night the heavens opened up and drenched the Course. Although the rain stopped at the Golf Course, the surrounding areas where participants were staying continued to have torrential rain most of the day. It was so heavy at Tweed and on the Coastal Areas that many golfers had to withdraw as they couldn’t drive in safe conditions. All Bunkers were made GUR for the day and preferred lies (Through the Green) became Local Rules. Friday saw better conditions, with the Bunkers put back in Play (although eight of the 42 Bunkers had GUR signs placed in them). The Preferred Lies remained a Local Rule.

On Tuesday Night, following the day’s competition, a small presentation was held, with nibbles being served, for Monday’s 4BBB Event. As there were more Mixed Pairings than Men’s Pairings, prizes went to Fifth Place in the Mixed Event and Two Places in the Men’s Pairing

Presentation for the rest of the week was made at Friday Night’s Dinner where 54 different participants received prizes for their achievements throughout the Tournament. The distribution of Prizes followed NSWVGA Policy 2 Guidelines.

Rescheduled Murwillumbah Veterans Open Day

The Open Day at Murwillumbah has been rescheduled to Monday 5th September. This will mean some reshuffling of our playing calendar for our own Veterans Program, but this date is the ONLY date available.

A new Nomination Sheet will be posted Mid July with a Closing Date of 19 August 2016.

Refunds are available from Treasurer Gary Hughes upon request or you can leave your $25.00 with Gary and he will hold it “in trust” for you.

We had 214 players registered to play last Monday. There was a lot of preparation done for such an event, but unfortunately one can not combat Mother Nature. Thank you to Victor and Charlene, in the Restaurant, who did not make any charge to us for the cancellation on Monday.

A very speedy cleanup by Green Staff saw the “Flood Nine” (Holes 10,11,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) open for play with Buggies on Wednesday.

I have attached a photo that was taken by Gary Fidler at 7.00am on Monday morning – just the exact time that Players on the the 1st Hole would have been Teeing Off in the Morning Shotgun Field. Their Drives would have been a very long water carry to a very, very waterlogged First Green.
