Wednesday 29th March
Another wet week with few opportunities for golf, but the annual Bellingen invitational managed to go ahead sponsored kindly by the Woodcraft gallery and Stan and Jan McCabe. 27 starters competed for some great prizes on an extremely hot and humid course. 'A' Grade winner was N Jenkins and R/U was T Brown. T Cuthel won 'B' Grade over R Williams. Ruth Hall was the Ladies' winner in a narrow victory over Maggie Oliver. NTPs went to B Woodward, T Brown (2), R Hickson and N Jenkins (2). The raffle prize went to N Farrar - two years on the run! Many thanks to Stan and Jan for all your organisation.
Later in the afternoon the final round of the Short Course saw 16 souls brave the heat. The winner was M Bekker with 22.2 over D Glanville's 24.3. The target holes were won by M Bekker and G Ridgewell. This year's Winner of Winners Final will be held on 4th April. Anyone who has won a Short Course this season is eligible to play for the $50 prize. If you can't remember give the club a call to check the list.

The Mid North Coast Men's Pennants season kicked off with Bellingen's Division 3 team travelling to a very soggy course at Woolgoolga and coming home all square. Well done guys and good luck to all our teams this year!
