Golf for Easter
By Peter Jaeger THE Lismore Workers Golf Club is again conducting the most prestigious Easter event on the Northern Rivers.
The 36-hole tournament will be conducted over Good Friday and Easter Saturday and will incorporate the Richmond River Amateur Championship.
The tournament is open to any amateur with an AGU handicap and the tournament has a very strong history of attracting many top quality low handicappers.
It is a great chance for low markers to pit themselves against the best players from Brisbane to Coffs Harbour.
There are great trophies for each 18-hole event on Friday and Saturday in all grades in both the gross and nett.
There is a fantastic range of trophies for all the events.
All golfers from scratch to 32 are welcome to play in the tournament.
Phone the club on 6621 2255 to book your spot.
LISMORE'S Kane Webber has had another superb week finishing 17th in the Johnnie Walker Classic in India.
This $2.5 million tournament was tri-sanctioned between the Asian, European and Australasian tours.
It was a great field contesting the event which included Adam Scott and Vijay Singh.
Kane played the last round with Singh and got him by a shot while Scott finished two shots further back.
Kane has come a long way in the past two years.
He has had the experience of playing against the likes of Tiger Woods and the rest and has been paired with Phil Mickelson and Singh.
Kane has reached a very high level and would be starting to feel very comfortable playing with the big boys.
Another plus with last week's result was that it will be beneficial to any European tour aspirations Kane may have as is the case with the next two weeks.
The right-hander will tee it up in this week's $2 million Malaysian Open and then in next week's $2.9 million Ballintines before heading back to the US for a rest.
It has been a good fortnight and let's hope that Kane can build on it in the next two weeks as well.
THERE has been more holes-in-one at Lismore with Ray Booker slam dunking it on the 16th last Saturday for his third career ace.
Not to be outdone (but who is counting?), AJ Kelly aced the 8th on Tuesday for his sixth career ace.
Tough school and they have got me covered.
A REMINDER to all juniors that the development day at Lismore will be held on Sunday March 16.
It is open to all girls and boys of all abilities with the cost $10 for lessons, lunch and drink from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
