THE Golfing Calendar for the Camden Haven Lady Golfers features some special events.
In addition to the normal fixtures they will be the host club for the Annual Central North Coast Seniors Ladies Tournament to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday May 10 and 11. This is a two day event and a field in excess of 120 is expected. The Club's Annual Bonanza weekend is set down for Friday 15 to Monday April 18, and the organisers are especially busy as this will be the 10th Bonanza and as in previous years it is expected to be extremely popular with the usual format of Friday - Ladies, Saturday - Men, Sunday - Mixed and Monday Men Veterans.
The generous sponsorship of our local business community has made it possible for this event to continue in this format and the exposure the course has been given has made it a venue looked on by many as a real challenge. Visitors from clubs as far afield as Sydney have been heard to vow they will be back to try to conquer it again year after year.
Both of these tournaments have been won in the past by local golfers and it is certain they will again be hotly contested by all.
In addition the Lady Golfers now have a Saturday morning competition which is open to all with a Womens Golf NSW Handicap. So if you are visiting or would just like some extra competition book in by ringing the Pro Shop 6559 4596.
On Wednesday July 20, the Ladies will be hosting an Invitation Day and BBQ hoping to introduce new players to our game or just allowing others to give it a try. However if you wish to take up golf you do not have to wait until then as new members and beginners are welcome all the time and our Professional Steve Boswell conducts clinics on a regular basis, juniors included (Ring 6559 4596). Special rates for membership etc, can be obtained from the Club Office (6559 4203).
In 2004 the Camden Haven's Grade One Pennant players were narrowly defeated in the final and this year they are out for revenge.
Such is the level of enthusiasm in the Club many have made reservations to stay in Kempsey for the Central North Coast Ladies Open Event - August 9-11. So beware golf can be addictive - but it is certainly healthy, sociable good exercise.
