Bright and colourful board shorts were the order of the day last Saturday at Kempsey Golf Club for the staging of the 2021 Alan MacDonald Memorial Day as part of the board shorts day.
Despite the morning showers and constant rain during the day there was a very good field of 112 players hitting off to remember Alan who was a long time member of the club.
The 18 hole Single Stableford event saw some good scores on the day and plenty of highlights.
A big thank you goes to the MacDonald family for their sponsorship of the day and to volunteers for your work on the course.
One of the best highlights was the Hole in One at the 131mt par 3 3rd hole by Jeff (snake) Black who said he hit a very good 9 iron straight at the hole and with just 2 bounces it disappeared into the hole for this amazing shot.
In the Stableford event on Saturday the best score on the day was recorded by Ritchie Applegate with a round of 41 points to claim the 'C' grade from Mitchell Baldwin of SWR with a score of 39 points.
