What a great day it was for the Casino Golf Club and the Ladies who eventually got to participate in the 2021 Women’s Golf Northern Rivers Vets Championship.

After a complete washout in March, the event was finally held on Friday 30th April, and even then we could not escape the rain. 85 players eventually took to the golf course, with ladies from Ballina, Casino, Coolangatta Tweed Heads, Coraki, Grafton, Iluka, Kyogle, Lismore, Maclean, Mullumbimby, Ocean Shores, Woodburn Evans Head and Yamba.

The course was looking the best it has been for quite some time with lots of grass on the fairways and the greens in pristine condition.  It was a real battle with only on point the difference in the Scratch Scores for the Veteran Champion.

Congratulations to the winners and thank you to the kitchen & bar staff, the greens staff, the fellows in the Pro Shop and the Casino girls for putting on a great day out.
