NSW Country Junior Invitational 

Developing junior boys and girls from our district were invited to this inaugural event held in conjunction with the Vintage Foundation  on January 24/25 2022 at the Vintage Golf Club.  Laana New from Charlestown GC and 6 boys from Newcastle clubs made up our district team. For the 2 days juniors played Stableford format and were partnered by members from the Vintage Golf club. Very generous individual and team trophies were presented at the conclusion of the event. 
 
Laana won an individual event and together with Declan Gordon from Waratah won the district trophy for the best boy and girl combined results.  Congratulations to Laana on her excellent achievement.  It is intended to continue this very successful event with hopefully 2 boys and 2 girls from each of the 18 regional districts  to participate.
NSW Amateur Championships
 
After winning our District Championships, Amy Squires represented the NHDLGA at  the 2022 Amateur Championships held at Wollongong and Shellharbour from January 24 – 27.  Amy had a great experience playing in this event for the first time. The conditions were tough but she was happy with her rounds of 75 and 77. Sadly she missed the cut by 4 shots but had the best time.   Amy is very appreciative of our district support and sends heartfelt thanks.  Congratulations and well done Amy.
