In Memory of Gary Ridge
Posted on: 5 March
Each year at the Ocean Shores Junior Open Day the NRDGA awards a special prize to the 9 hole golfer with the best Gross score on the day. This prize is to recognise the contribution of Gary Ridge, a past Ocean Shores Country Club Member who passed away a few years ago.
In 2019, the best score, by some margin, was recorded by Jack Pache from the Coolangatta & Tweed Heads Golf Club. Jack shot a wonderful score of 44 shots for the 9 holes. Jack is also a current member of the NRDGA/NCAS/WGNR/JNJG Development Squad coached by Chris Graham (PGA – Ocean Shores). Chris has commented that Jack seems to be improving each session that the squad assembles for and it will not be long before Jack will be challenging for his 18 hole (GA) handicap. Congratulations Jack.
