Sharne is understandably extremely proud of her Grade Team and her Club’s achievement. Team V Par Results PRIZE WINNERS The event has proved popular this year with a total of 88 players hitting off in the tournament. This year saw a large number of entries from clubs in the Southern Highlands and Central Coast areas of NSW which are both within a few hours drive of the Pacific Dunes course. The Killara Golf Club also had a large contingent of entrants who were happy to leave the city behind them for the weekend and enjoy the Medowie and Nelson Bay areas. The Pacific Dunes Golf Club provided great service in both the catering and Pro Shop areas of the club house. It was a pleasure to enjoy their professionalism and willingness to assist wherever possible. From the needs of the players to the Golf NSW officials requirements nothing was too much trouble. On behalf of Golf NSW, thank you to Pacific Dunes and a big thank you to all the players who competed to make this the best ever Northern Weekend Tournament.
