Rising star golfing talent Amelia Mehmet-Grohn claims title
GOLFER Amelia Mehmet-Grohn has been named NSW Country 2014 junior girl champion.
Amelia was one of four Coffs Coast juniors who travelled to Wollongong to participate in the JNJG NSW age championships.
Apart from winning her championship, Amelia was the 17-years Girls Cup gross winner with a score of 307 after four rounds to place eighth in the field of 39.
The achievement came one week after a visit to Dubbo where she gained selection in the NSW All Schools team.
Courtney Robinson participated in the 16-years Plate and placed fourth in gross and second in nett with a four-round total of 338.
In the 16-years Cup, Zac Ion was fourth in gross and fifth in nett.
Jack Pountney battled his way around the course with a six-iron after suffering an arm injury from a skateboard fall and while he missed the cut for the Cup event, recorded an extraordinary win in the 15-years Plate Scratch division despite his wounded 'wing.'
Meanwhile, Michael Nugent and Phillip Day of Nambucca Heads took out the district final of the NSW Mens Fourball championships played at Woolgoolga.
They combined for 46 points to win the prised berth at Bonville for the finals where they'll enjoy a five day stay at the resort with all expenses paid.
Grafton pair Paul Ensby and Tony Blackadder was one shot back with the Dorrigo team of Pete Herwig and Jim Fahey in third place.
