President wins inaugural Kerry McCoy Cup at Nambucca Heads

Posted on: 22 October

The inaugural “Kerry McCoy Cup” was played on Saturday 12th September with a great field of 143 players including 31 visiting golfers. The Medley Single Stableford event was sponsored by “A Pizza This A Pizza That” with Steve Ward also supplying free pizza to the members and Club Professional Paul Habgood who donated a golf bag. The Trophy is presented to the Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club member with the best stableford score on the day and will be presented each year on the second Saturday in September to remember all members and family of members who have passed on during the previous 12 months.

In an emotional presentation attended by Kerry’s wife Lyn and daughter Maureen, President Geoff Harris paid tribute to Kerry’s time as past Captain and President, “who gave his heart and soul to the Club, and without whose determination, the Club would almost certainly not be trading today – such was his influence in re-shaping our future”.

Winner of the Cup was many times Club Champion and Life Member Ian Vidler with the Trophy presented by Lyn and Maureen.
