Our pink paradise of golf and horse sports

A DAY on the golf course followed by a day at the races.

Sounds like the definition of paradise on the Coffs Coast and it's all happening next month.

Coffs Comets Rugby League Club is backing the third Pink Silks Charity Day at Coffs Harbour Golf Club on Friday, January 8, to wet the whistle for Pink Silks racing two days later.

"The Comets and the Pink Silks committee has worked very well together over the past two years and have raised in excess of $9,000 through our jersey auctions," president Steve Gooley said.

"If you are keen to play golf you need to book in as soon as possible as this day always sells out early."

The golf event is a four person ambrose at $260 per team.

Entry includes a pre-game lunch, drink vouchers and a post-game food platter.

Registrations are from 11am with a shotgun start at noon.

Book on the online form or call reception on 6652 3244 for more information.

"The Pink Silks Ladies race day is a highlight of the Coffs Harbour calendar," Gooley said.

"The aim is to improve awareness of local women's health issues and raise much needed funds for local charities.

"With nearly $425,000 raised over the past nine years, the goal is to raise even more funds in 2016 for local organisations that support local women.

"To achieve this we are again asking for people, organisations and businesses to get involved in this fantastic event."
