Did you know?

The Tuncurry course originally started life as the Great Lakes Country Club, later becoming part of the Forster Tuncurry Golf Club, when its initial owners went into receivership. Forster Tuncurry now boasts two golf courses - the Forster course, just south of the town of Forster, and across the Coolongolook River, the Tuncurry course, just north of the town of Tuncurry.

The Forster Tuncurry Golf Club is located in the Great Lakes area on New South Wales' Mid North Coast, a three hour drive north of Sydney. Surfing, beaches, national parks, fishing, dolphin and whale watching make Forster-Tuncurry a popular visitor destination.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.
