June Long Weekend Tennis Tournament

Bingara’s Annual Open Tennis Tournament is held every Queen’s birthday weekend in June. The Tournament was first held in 1936 as a local tournament but in the mid 1950’s it attracted as many as 156 players from the north west region as well as Newcastle, Sydney and Queensland.

Today, the Tournament still draws a great number of players.

The Fossickers Way Veterans’ Week of Golf

This week has an interesting history going back to 1994 when it was planned and promoted as an open event called “Bingara Golf Club Gold Strike Challenge and Veterans’ Week of Golf”.

The first prize to a professional was a Gold Nugget to the value of $1000 for the best round under par. For the amateurs the first prize was a valuable gold watch for the best round under, or equal to par. This turned out to be too ambitious, and so from 1995 it became The Fossickers Way Veterans’ Week of Golf.

The Fossickers Way week of golf is now affiliated with Veterans Golf NSW and is held in September each year. The Veterans NSW Golf Association Trophy is played for over 3 days as is the Mac Dufty Memorial Shield. The coveted Cod is played for over 4 days.

The Fossickers Way now attracts a capacity field of 100 golfers, with many bookings made a year ahead.
