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.

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.
