THE annual Women's Golf Northern Rivers three-day tournament will be held this year at the challenging Casino Golf Course on July 20-22.

The WGNR committee hopes to have more than 100 entries each day from its 18 member clubs in the Northern Rivers.

The membership extends from Coolangatta/Tweed Heads, Club Banora and Murwillumbah in the north to Yamba, Maclean, Iluka and Grafton in the south; from Ocean Shores, Byron Bay and Ballina in the east to Kyogle and Woodenbong in the west.

The tournament comprises two single stableford events on the Monday and Tuesday and a Foursomes event on the Wednesday.

The first hole-in-one on the 9th hole will receive $100 from the Lismore Workers Club.

The first hole-in-one on the 17th will receive a Bernina sewing machine from Eastlands Sewing Centre in Lismore.

The entry fee is $60 for the three days or $21 per player per day. There will be a Tournament Dinner on Tuesday evening at the club with dinner, presentations and entertainment by "Lay Back Duo".

There will be a special dedication to Patsy Jessup (a much-loved and respected past president) and the planting of a tree in her memory at the 4th hole at Casino on Monday, July 20 at 3pm. All welcome.

Please book your accommodation and golf cart early so you won't be disappointed. Information and entry forms are available from womensgolfnr@gmail.com or phone 0447 228 768.
