They are encouraging the community to get behind the charity golf day by registering with the club as soon as possible.

New date for charity golf day in support of new parents

Jun 14, 2024

Crescent Head Country Club’s eagerly anticipated charity golf day has been moved to a new, hopefully sunny, date – Sunday 14 July.

The event, in support of the Kempsey District Hospital’s Maternity Unit, was scheduled for International Day of the Midwife in May.

Crescent Head Country Club Secretary Manager Colan Ryan said the deluge of rain on the Mid North Coast forced the postponement due to the impact on the safety of players.

“We understand the disappointment for golfers and supporters of the hospital and we are looking forward to teeing off in July to raise funds for the Maternity Unit,” Mr Ryan said.

“The Charity Golf Day presents an excellent opportunity for the community to come together in support of the Maternity Unit while enjoying a day of sport and philanthropy.

“Our club is all about assisting the community of the Macleay Valley and we are proud to support the great work of the hospital.”

Maternity Unit Manager Leece Lecciones thanked everyone who generously gave their time, resources and enthusiasm towards the event so far, and said she was looking forward to blue skies and kind greens.

Shotgun start times for the 12-hole Ambrose event are 7.30am or 10am. Individuals or teams interested in playing or seeking further information are encouraged to contact the club’s Sports Shop at 6566 1211.

The cost is $35 a person which includes golf fees and lunch.
