The Moruya Golf Club thanked the 60 volunteers and staff for their work towards making the South Coast Open a success.
It was the first time Moruya hosted such a high caliber of players from across the nation who were competing for a $50,000 prize at the NSW Open qualifier.
Players' impressive distances and accuracy wowed spectators who took the opportunity to follow their favourites around the course.
General Manager of Moruya Golf Club Josh Prowse said the event drew 150 people to town over the four days and plenty of locals came to watch.
"Sunday we had between 150-200 spectators around the course at one time," Prowse said.
There were about 60 club members who volunteered over the weekend.
"It was true community spirit that helped get things underway," Prowse said.
Moruya club champ Brent Hull and superintendent of the course said the three other locals competing loved the experience.
Hull had prepared the course for district and regional events, but never an event of this standard. He knew he had his work cut out.
Thankfully, staff from Catalina, Tuross Head and Narooma clubs helped Hull prepare the course from 4.30am each morning. Players complimented the quality of the green and number of volunteers.
"It was a lot of hard work, but it was enjoyable," Hull said.
"I think my wife had forgotten what I looked like the past few weeks."
A highlight for Hull was playing with golfers from Europe and China.
"It was really great to watch them go about their business," Hull said.
"They were certainly five levels above the average golfer."
Prowse said NSW qualifying golf tournaments were funded by the NSW Government to grow and develop the sport. The South Coast Open was one of six qualifying events to take place across the state in the lead up to the NSW Open at Concord Golf Club at the end of this month. Prowse hoped Moruya would see the South Coast Open return next year.
