After an electrifying first event held at Mollymook over the weekend, the Women’s NSW Open Golf Regional Qualifying Series is now heading to Wagga Wagga Country Club.

“The atmosphere, the members and the golf course in general are great. It’s a good challenge, the course, so completely gettable at the same time. It’s a different event but I would love to get another win at Wagga Wagga.
