On the weekend of the 2nd & 3rd December 2017 WGCNC hosted its third golf camp for junior girls in the region to develop their game of golf.

Nine girls attended the camp on Saturday at Taree golf course under the coaching eye of Wayne Dodd (Taree). During the morning session, after a light warm up & introduction from all the girls, Wayne concentrated on the importance of alignment and practised some long irons. After lunch the girls headed back to the putting area were they had tuition on putting technique, alignment, reading greens and games based practice for distance control.

Wayne also allowed some time in the afternoon to discuss smarter playing golf before heading around the extra 3 holes at the course to practice course shot selection and scoring 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 81 Gross

Net Winner – Madeleine Laws-Farrell (Port Macquarie) with 67 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 for her assistance in organising this camp.

I look forward to organising a program of events for the region in 2018.
