Local member James Stokes was just one of the winners to share in $3,000 worth of prizes at the Mullumbimby Open golf tournament held on Saturday.
James got around the course in with a net score of 66. The other notable score went to Josh Wright, who works at the Royal Pines resort on the Gold Coast.
‘He works in the pro shop and plays off a handicap of one, and is an aspiring professional. He hit 68 off the stick, or two under par for the course,’ tournament organiser Steve Ryan said.
Considering the months of rain that forced the tournament to be put back after being rained off in March, the course was in good condition and the greens were really fast, Steve said.
All up 142 players hit the course on Saturday with 30 players coming from 10 different clubs.
‘Everyone was really happy we got to run the Open on our second go,’ he said.
