Richmond Ladies


Richmond ladies ready to raise funds for Pink Finss

Richmond Golf Club is set to lend a hand to Pink Finss, a Hawkesbury Charity that supports women with Breast cancer.

The Club is holding a Charity Day on September 21. Players will take part in a four person medley Stableford with plenty of fundraising actives planned throughout the day.

Last year the club raised almost $9000 for the charity, a figure that Richmond Golf Club ladies captain Carolyn Lozier was proud to talk about.

“A lot of our ladies are older, and they have had a lot of exposure to breast cancer either themselves or they know someone who has had it,” she said.

“It is not easy when you are dealing with it, and Pink Finss provides support for those people.”

Lozier said anyone wishing to play should contact the club. Entry is $25 per player.

Duuntryleague Junior Clinic


Junior clinic kicks off at Duntryleague

Club stalwarts Peter Mitchell and Robert Payne have started a free Sunday morning junior coaching clinic At Duntryleague Golf Club in Orange.

Kids have been learning the basics of the game from chipping and putting to full shots under the watchful eyes of volunteers, before taking part in a nine-hole competition.

Although early days, the organisers are pleased with the response. Numbers are steadily climbing, and as the weather improves, they expect the popularity of the clinic to grow.

“They’re learning all about the game, but above all, they are having fun,” Mr Mitchell said. “We would like to especially thank the mums and dads that attend each Sunday despite the icy conditions.”

Mudgee turns green for Lymphoma

Mudgee golf club staff has gone green in support of Lymphoma - and to support one of their own, club superintendent Jason Sies who is in Nepean hospital receiving treatment for the disease.

The club is taking donations throughout the month and is also raising money by selling T-shirts, bangles, ribbons and balloons.

Mudgee Golf Club operations manager Debbie Bates said the cause is personal to the Club.

“The money will go toward research for cures and to get rid of this horrible disease, but it’s really about raising awareness,” Mrs Bates said.

Mudgee Golf Club’s marketing coordinator, Emily Wrona, said “we’re letting our community know that there are people in our community with this disease.”

“There are a lot of people in our community and in our Club that are battle Lymphoma,” she said.

“It’s something that needs more attention.”

The five-year survival rate for people with lymphoma, across the many subtypes, is 75%.
