The Mullumbimby Open prize table.

More than 150 players are ready to tee off and compete for $3,000 worth of prizes in the Mullumbimby Open this Saturday May, 12.

The event has been re-scheduled from March owing to rainy conditions at the time, and the organisers are crossing their fingers that the weather will hold. 

The event was re-instated last year according to one of the sponsors Gary Brazenor from Bangalow Real Estate and Hinterland Properties.

‘The Brunswick Valley Open ran from 1980 till 1991 and last year we re-established the event to a very enthusiastic response despite some very difficult weather conditions.

‘I’m delighted to be a sponsor once again as it promises to be a great day with lots of prizes up for grabs, including golf bags and other golf paraphernalia,’ he said.

The stroke play event is open to all men, women, members and non-members with a handicap.

With an anticipated hot field it will be a great day for golf enthusiasts to come along and watch. There will be food on sale prepared by the club and the bar is open to the public.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Why are we so blasé about violent pornography?

Why is it a turn on to hurt us? Recent intersectional studies have shown that online misogyny and violent pornography are contributors to a sharp rise in domestic violence. In NSW alone, police attend 500 incidents every day. If there were 500 threats or incidents at banks, or to the government, we would be in a state of emergency. Instead we stop, shake our heads, we listen to good men in government speak empty words, make a few promises, and move on. If you’ve ever lived through violence, it’s pretty well what your abuser does after hitting you.
