LNC v. Newcastle


Newcastle have continued their dominance over the Lower North Coast for another year after another dominant victory held at Harrington Waters on the 30th of May. 2021 was the first year we have played juniors off handicaps against Newcastle and the boys did well with Will Martin winning 2 and 1 with Colby Wilkinson winning 1 up. The 3 and 4 ranked juniors came very close to winning with Rory Falk going down 2 and 1 while Harry LeRougetel lost 1 down. It was terrific to see the boys playing well in difficult conditions and a big thanks goes out to the parents for bringing the boys along on a cold and windy day.

Our Open Men struggled against the Newcastle men who have a great deal of depth and an abundance of talent. Unfortunately we lost 6 nil. Harrington Waters is a difficult course at the best of times, however, a strong southerly wind and cold temperatures made it even more so. Rod Moran did well to stay with Jye Picken (USA College player) and eventually lost on the second last hole. Brad Germon had an uncharacteristic bad day while the rest of the team, consisting of Rohan Abbott, Lindsay Verdon, Matt Waltz and Anthony Boyd played valiantly but were all unfortunately beaten.
It was great to see Inter-district matches again after 2020’s COVID restrictions. A big thank you to all of the LNC golfers who made the effort and played on the day.
LNC also greatly appreciates the efforts of Peter Budden and the team at Harrington Waters who provided a course in fantastic condition and the typical hospitality which is always shown at Harrington.
