Nothing says ‘thank you’ quite like a glorious day of golf

THE sun was shining and golf clubs were swinging at The Northern Star Real Estate Agents Golf Day yesterday.

Held every year at the Byron Bay Golf Club, this year's event brought 55 people on to the greens.

The Northern Star's regional general manager, Steve Bowden, said it was a great day out.

"We had glorious weather with a cooling sea breeze," he said.

"We kicked off at 10am with a shotgun start.

"Ralph Tully from LJ Hooker Alstonville and Shawn Bishop from McGrath Ballina played particularly well."

Jamie Marshall, from McGrath Ballina, said: "When I manage to hit the ball, I'm having a good day."

The golf day is hosted by The Northern Star as a way to thank its loyal clients.

Mr Bowden said it had been a good year for the Northern Rivers' real estate industry.

"The golf day is a chance to thank our real estate agents and principals for their support and their business over the year," he said.

"We've also taken the opportunity to talk to them about the digital changes we're implementing with The Northern Star Unlimited.

"More Saturday papers, which includes our real estate liftout, are hitting lawns right across the Northern Rivers."
