Eden Whale Festival Golf Day
Eden Whale Festival events tee-off next weekend (Saturday, October 13) with the annual golf day at Eden Gardens Country Club.
Each year around 100 golfers from Eden and around the region compete in the 4 Ball Mixed Ambrose.
Eden players won the cup last year with father son team, Grant and Adam Inwood teaming up with Wayne Oldfield and Brian Knox.
Golf pro Loraine Lambert said the Eden Whale Festival Cup is one of the club’s premier events.
“People are excited to have another game of golf on their calendar and are pleased to support the festival too,” she said
“A shotgun start at 11am means everyone finishes together and there is a great atmosphere to relax after the game and enjoy the presentations.”
The cost is $15 per player, which includes nibbles after the game and prizes for winning teams.

Open Gardens Of Eden
Local gardens are looking blooming lovely this Spring and more local gardeners are supporting the Open Gardens Of Eden.
The festival committee has teamed up with the Eden Lioness Club to present 10 local gardens, plus Edrom Lodge on the southern side of Twofold Bay, in the two day event.
Organiser and Lioness Sandra Symonds said the gardens will be open on the weekend of October 26 and 27, just one week before the festival’s main events.
“Each garden is different in its theme and layout and could provide many ideas for those who visit them,” she said.
“We look forward to meeting all of our wonderful visitors, last year we welcomed people from Gippsland and Canberra.”
Last year eight families opened up their gardens for the event, which attracted a record crowd of 200 people from the region.
Tickets cost $10 and will be available at the centrally located Eden Lioness tent at the Eden Scout Hall (on the Princes Highway opposite the Eden Gateway Holiday Park).
Money raised supports the festival, along with key Lioness projects such as SnowyHydro Careflight helicopter, local families and schools.
