GOLF: Yesterday’s Pink Silks fundraiser at the Coffs Har­bour Golf Club was a rag­ing suc­cess, with a sold-out field tak­ing to the fair­ways in the name of char­ity.

The event has been run­ning for many years and has made a ma­jor con­tri­bu­tion to the $800,000 the Pink Silks Trust has raised for the lo­cal com­mu­nity and national re­search in­sti­tutes.

It adds an ex­tra el­e­ment to a ma­jor fundrais­ing week­end in town, with a big crowd ex­pected to file through the gates at the Coffs Har­bour Racing Club to­mor­row for the Pink Silks Race Day.

Make sure you head to our web­site to check out pho­tos from yesterday’s golf day.

NAM­BUCCA Heads Is­land Golf Club has to be one of the most pic­turesque pub­lic golf cour­ses in Aus­tralia.

The stellar lo­ca­tion on Stu­art Is­land, sur­rounded by the Nam­bucca River at Nam­bucca Heads, makes it a mag­nif­i­cent setting for a game of golf.

Where else can you play golf while watch­ing dol­phins swim by in the pris­tine river while pel­i­cans, osprey and sea ea­gles fly over­head?

The par 69, 18-hole lay­out de­signed by Ross Wat­son is both a chal­lenge for the ex­pe­ri­enced player but en­joy­able for an av­er­age golfer. It is a flat, easy walk on fair­ways lined with she oak and pa­per bark trees.

The ex­cel­lent Bent Grass greens are the re­sult of decades of ded­i­cated work.

Paul Hab­good is the Is­land Golf Club’s head pro­fes­sional. Paul is a PGA AAA-ac­cred­ited pro­fes­sional with 20 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence.

He was the head pro­fes­sional at Kempsey Golf Club from 1998–2002, then head pro­fes­sional at Toowoomba Golf club from 2002–2017.

Paul and his team of­fer an ex­ten­sive range of golf­ing equip­ment covering all price points, men’s and women’s cloth­ing, golf les­sons (pri­vate or group) and a speedy, qual­ity re­pair ser­vice.

The Nam­bucca Heads Is­land Golf Club con­ducts mixed events open to mem­bers and visi­tors on the first and third Sun­days of each month.

These are so­cial events with a shot­gun start at 11am so all play­ers fin­ish at the same time to so­cialise and en­joy the club­house ameni­ties in­clud­ing free snack food.

The first Sun­day is al­ways a mixed 4BBB Stable­ford, while the third Sun­day is a mixed 4BBB that is var­ied each month.
