Cancellation of CNC Medal, Port Macquarie

Advice was received from Golf NSW on Friday 20th August 2020, regarding the changes to Community Sport.

The CNC Committee discussed in length these recommendations and concluded that we agreed to not encourage inter club competition outside their region. We would avoid intermingling and potential community transmission.  We regretfully inform the Districts that the CNC MEDAL to be played on 31st August at Port Macquarie has been cancelled and the Junior Raffle that was to be drawn will be drawn at a later date.

All Clubs that entered players could you contact the CNC Treasurer Coral McCann with their Bank Details so a full refund can be deposited into your account.


WGCNC Annual Tournament and Medal Changes

 It is with regret we are cancelling the Annual Tournament that was to be held at Taree in August.   We look forward to holding a tournament in the future at Taree.

The WGCNC is also transferring the CNC Medal that was to be held in July at Port to 21st September 2020, replacing the new addition to our calendar the CNC 4BBB.  We plan to re-evaluate both these events on 1st August and hopefully we can find an alternate date to hold the CNC 4BBB.  As these are one day events it is easier to follow the restriction guidelines.

The Junior Raffle will be drawn at the first CNC event that is to be held.  Those Clubs that still have outstanding tickets could you sell them please in the next two months and return to the CNC Treasurer.

We understand that social distancing has proven to be a hurdle, but we can all enjoy our golf and await for restrictions to be lifted.

JNJGC Taree December 2019

JNJGC Taree December 2019

On the weekend of the 30th November & 1st December 2019, WGCNC hosted its second golf camp for junior girls in the region to develop their game of golf.

Ten girls attended the camp on Saturday at Taree golf course under the coaching eye of Belinda Hodson (Port Macquarie). The morning session, after a light warm up & introduction from all the girls, Belinda concentrated on the importance of alignment and practiced some long irons. After lunch the girls headed back to the putting area where they had tuition on putting technique, alignment, reading greens and games-based practice for distance control.

Belinda also allowed some time in the afternoon for bunker & chipping practice in preparation for the tournament the next day.

On Saturday night the girls and their parents were invited to the Manning Aquatic Centre where the girls cooled off followed by a BBQ dinner.

Sunday morning, we gathered at Taree Golf Club for breakfast which had been organised by the club as part of their tournament package and played in their 9 & 18 hole tournament.

In conjunction with the 18 hole tournament the CNC District Junior Girl Championship was held, The winners were as follows:

Gross Winner – Pyper Hollis (Kew) with 83 Gross

Net Winner – Maddison Butterfield (Kempsey) with 76 Net

Again, the camp would not run successfully without the commitment of WGCNC and JNJG, for which both the girls and parents are very grateful.

I would also like to thank Taree Golf Club, especially Kay Woolcock & Todd Watkins for their assistance in organising this camp.
