On a day that was made for golf, David Collins from Coolangatta Tweed Heads Golf Club has taken out the 2016 Genesis Golf Link Cup.

The team at the Genesis Golf Link Cup knows that golf isn’t really an individual sport. Sure, you might play nine holes by yourself or head to the range to work on your swing, but is there any greater feeling than celebrating your first eagle in the clubhouse with your mates? With this in mind we’re offering an even greater incentive for you to sign up your mates for the 2017 Genesis Golf Link Cup.

Genesis Golf Link Cup A Grade winner Stephen Russell says it’s nice to be giving something back to his family after qualifying for the upcoming Genesis Golf Link Cup final at the NSW Golf Club.
