The Australian Over Eighty Golf Championship for Men and Women concluded at Harrington Waters Golf Club last Thursday. The Championship was played over 27 Holes. Nine holes played each day.
The Men's Champion was Arthur Shepherd from Bonville Golf Club with 31 stableford points, holding off last year's winner Ken Madden (Merewether) with 28 points.
The Ladies Champion was Betty Andrews (Kew Country Club) with 24 points from Mary Gleeson (Tallwoods Golf Club) with 11 points. This was the third year Betty had won.
In the net division local golfer Vic Winter from Harrington Waters, off a handicap of 34 won with 57 points from Ocean Shores golfer Ken Bradford (35) on 56 points.
The ladies net winner was Audrey Crow (36) from Forster-Tuncurry with 46 points pipping our very own Joan Fleming (32) with 45 points.
All the golfers commented on the excellent condition of the course and thoroughly enjoyed the three days of golf and entertainment provided by Harrington Waters. Members went out of their way to assist these elderly players, with at least one accompanying each group and others 'spotting' for any wayward balls. Most of the golfers tell us they will be back next year, health permitting.
The Club was indebted to the excellent support of our local community especially Anglican Care, Harrington Hotel, Manning Great Lakes Skin Cancer Clinic, the Mid Coast Automotive Group and Professionals Harrington.
