Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Golfers were scram­bling to be the first to tee off on Tocumwal Golf Club’s new 18th hole on the Pres­i­dent’s course on Sun­day.

How­ever it was club pro­fes­sional Rod­ney Booth who was given the honours.

He was fol­lowed by the club’s 2016 ladies’ cham­pion Bo­bette Wilkin­son and men’s cham­pion Caleb Bo­valina.

The new par three was of­fi­cially opened by ladies’ vice cap­tain San­dra Wil­liams, club pres­i­dent Chris O’Con­nell and club cap­tain Michael Keen (pic­tured).

More than 100 peo­ple were in at­ten­dance, in­clud­ing club life mem­bers. Guests heard from club CEO Craig Smith and course ar­chi­tect Phil Ryan at the open­ing.

The new hole is the first stage of a big­ger de­vel­op­ment at the facility since its merger with the Tocumwal Bowl­ing Club. Fu­ture de­vel­op­ments in­clude the ad­di­tion of bowls greens.
