With only a small field for the 18 hole Single Stableford event last Saturday at the Kempsey Golf Club there were visitors from Wallacia, Tuggerah Lakes, South West Rocks and Frederickton in the field on the day.
With the club as the major sponsor of the day the players did enjoy the day and the course and while the players did finish there rounds before the sudden thunderstorm hit the area on Saturday afternoon the day was a success.
A big thank you goes to all the volunteers and the members who have been helping on the course over the last few weeks to have the course up to the good condition it is.
