Father's Day golf returns to the Tweed

Is there a better way to celebrate Father's Day than a stroll around the golf course?

It's no surprise that Father's Day tournaments are a staple on the golfing calendar everywhere, as for many families it is a past-time not to be overlooked.

Next month, the Coolangatta and Tweed Heads Golf Club will host its inaugural Father's Day Weekend Tournament, and it's the perfect weekend for the family with father/son, mother/son, father/daughter and mother/daughter combos all invited to enter.

The Father's Day Tournament will consist of Stroke and Stableford events over two days - Saturday, September 1 and Sunday, September 2 - across the club's two great courses.

Entries for the tournament close at 5pm on Monday, August 27.

The 2018 Father's Day Tournament will follow hot on the heels of the Coolangatta and Tweed Heads Pro-Am to be played on Friday, August 31.

At the Pro-Am a golf professional is grouped with three amateur players, with Tim Hart coming out on top in 2017.

Last year 210 players fronted the starter for the tournament.
