Paul de Fina could hardly believe his eyes when he sank the ball straight off the 9th tee at Mullum golf course.

Over the moon after a great shot Paul, was extra chuffed when he realised it was worth $522 courtesy of  Bill Nicholls Accountants, who have been a long time sponsor of the 9th hole.

‘I wont be spending it on golf clubs’, said Paul. ‘I’m very happy with the way these ones are working for me’.

Paul used his 3-wood for the shot. ‘It’s the closest I’ve come to a hole-in-one; prior to this I was landing it on the green, however nowhere near the hole.’

‘Two other members also scored a hole-in-one in December – Sam Ridgewell and Richard Long’, said club director, Debbie Cullen.

‘It’s quite unusual to have that many in a few months, showing that Mullum course is at its best with beautiful greens and lush fairways as a result of the recent rains we’ve had.’

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
