IT WAS with thanks and regret that the ladies at the Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club farewelled resident club professional, Steve Barnes.

Steve has been responsible for the interest in golf of many of the ladies. His good nature and friendly welcome will be sadly missed as well as his help with the members’ golf technique.

Steve, generously, was the sponsor of the day with lavish prizes and extra NTPs and long drive rewards.
