Port Macquarie Marine Rescue golf day on February 25

Port Macquarie Marine Rescue hosted a golf day on February 25, with the sun shining on what was predicted to be a wet and windy day.

The event’s aim was to raise vital funds to help the organisation keep people safe on the water.

Two competitions were on at the Port Macquarie Golf Course, a professional round in the morning before an amateur round in the afternoon and an auction. 

The event was supported by more than 140 people.

It was organised by Marine Rescue volunteer Christine Dickson. She said it was a fantastic day in which they hope close to $10,000 will be raised, with the final count to come later in the week.

“We have had a real good turnout, with plenty in the morning and more than 140 in the afternoon,” she said.

“Everyone has had a great time. The weather has been very nice, but the clouds started building up in the afternoon.

“I’d like to say thank you to all of the people who came along to play and to support Marine Rescue.”
