Nowra Croquet Club hosted the inaugural Bronze Brooch Golf Croquet event last weekend.
The club was given the honour of holding the first CNSW event in this category.
Players with handicaps of 7 to 10 played a round robin knockout game on Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10.
Because of the number of extra players, the event was held both at Nowra and Jamberoo, as Nowra currently only has two courts.
In total 18 players from Sutherland, Royal Sydney Golf Club, Mosman, Jamberoo, Wollongong and Nowra contested the event with the final held at Nowra on Sunday, August 11.
Despite the cold and strong winds on both days, players rugged up and contested the weather as well as their opponents
Sunday cleared and allowed the finals to be conducted, with the two finalists coming from the Nowra Club.
The outright winner was Stephen Young and runner-up Marie McLean.
