The Byron Bay Lady Golfers capped off a big year by presenting a cheque for over $1,500 to the Fletcher Street Cottage after running a couple of raffles in the lead up to Christmas.
Other charity work by the Lady Golfers included the Pink Ball Day, which raised money for breast cancer.
In general the year was limited by the sodden weather, but the Lady Golfers did get enough game time in to win the Wallace Shield, the much-anticipated annual competition between Byron and Ballina, now in its 59th year.
The golfing calendar took on many iterations with the match sub-committee and Ladies’ Captain, Marjorie Askew, juggling dates, course renovations and sodden greens. But the club was delighted once again to host another successful two-day tournament in November.
Byron Bay Ladies Champion was Tracey Timperley, a long-standing member of Byron Bay Golf Club who earlier in the year had also won the Tallebudgera Ladies Championship.
Tracey has moved to the Gold Coast but continues her golf membership on both sides of the border.
Kerry Lollback and Joan Neate collected the Foursomes Championship trophy.
