Encourage Shield – LNC v. Coffs Harbour

On Sunday 7th December 2019, the 6 person LNCDGA JNJG Encourage Shield team traveled to Grafton Golf Club to play the Northern Rivers team with the winner to advance to the state final at Newcastle in January 2020.

The course was bone dry so much so that the players had to hit off mats from tee to green and the NRDGA handled the mats better than we did and the match was lost 4 games to 2.

We went into the match minus two of our original team who had other commitments on the day and the replacements tried their hardest to help us to secure a victory but it just wasn’t our day. The results of the matches were:
Maddison Butterfield Won 2/1,

Blair MacLachlan Lost 6/5,

Colby Wilkinson Lost 4/2,

William Martin Won 3/2,

Ely Payne Lost 1up

Breyella Golledge Lost 4/3.
