The Women’s golf club thank you for purchasing their cakes and supporting the Aussie farmers. The cake sales raised $500 with the help of some generous donations, including a $200 donation from a club sponsor. The ladies have proudly forwarded $500 to the Buy a Bale and Help Aussie Famers campaign.
The Women’s golf club is raising funds to support the Aussie farmers. You can help the ladies raise funds by purchasing their delicious cakes tomorrow (Vets day 26th July 2018). Cupcakes, small layer cakes, gingerbread and banana bread will be on sale at the Shoalhaven Heads Golf Club.
The Lee Wellard Shield is played each year between Worrigee and Shoalhaven Heads veteran’s golf clubs. The shield event is played over two rounds, one round at each club. The second round this year was played at Shoalhaven Heads today.
Shoalhaven Heads finished in front and retains the shield.

The Women’s Golf Club, sanctioned by the board, has commenced a new fund raising initiative. The aim is to collect and recycle the empty (10c return and earn) bottles and cans which are purchased in the club house.
The ladies collected approximately 100 containers in the first week. The 100 containers along with a member’s home collection were deposited at the recycling depot. There is now $30 in the bank account.
Since the club sells 800 bottles and cans on average per week, there is the potential to raise reasonable funds each year. The potential can only be reached with your support. You may do this by placing your empty 10c return and earn containers in the allocated bin.
You may have noticed a separate yellow recycle bin with a label attached outside the club house main entrance. This is the recycle bin allocated for the Women’s Golf Club fund raising initiative.
Note that the funds raised by the Women’s Golf Club will not only go towards supporting the ladies club but will also contribute to improvements around the clubhouse. Please do your bit, help save the planet, and let the club get the tax back.
