Women's golf club seeks playing members
The Everglades Women's Golf Club is looking for new playing members.
President, Ms Donna Mitchell said the club was "a great bunch of women" and that places were available in beginner golf clinics.
"If you can already play, then come and have a chat with us any Tuesday or Thursday afternoon," she said.
The women's club has raised $60,000 during the past 10 years for local charities.
It was established in 1957 and women became equal members with the Men's Golf Club at Everglades in 1983.
Currently there are 165 women who are members, which is the second largest women's golf club on the Central Coast.
Since 2006, Everglades Women's Golf Club has raised funds for: Glenvale School (children with disabilities), Coast Shelter, Wigwam, Biggest Morning Tea, Iris Foundation, World Biggest Shave, Woy Woy School-Early Prevention, Prostrate Cancer, Kids in Need, Umina Salvation Army Camp Breakaway, Pink Ribbon Foundation, Jane McGrath Foundation and Australian Cancer Research.
The women golfers were generous and proud of the support they have given to the community, Ms Mitchell said.
"Our raffles have always been sponsored by local businesses which have been supportive in their donation of major and minor prizes.
"This year our chosen charity is Shirley's Shuttle which provides transport for cancer patients to and from Gosford Cancer Clinic," she said.
"It is run by volunteer drivers and charges only $5 per trip door to door whilst the transport waits for the patient regardless of the duration of the appointment.
"Everglades has had many of our member's use this service and we wish to give back what we can to keep this vital service running into the future.
"The Women's Committee can assist you in joining Everglades Country Club".
