Veterans Golf




We had 63 members enjoying the first touch of Spring with a beautiful morning with the field hitting off the 10th hole. Over the past few weeks we have had winners who have had exceptional rounds of golf and this Friday was no different with our winner Nick McGhie scoring 24pts. Nick was even par until the last hole, which unfortunately saw him get into a spot of bother and a double bogie to finish with. As our winner Nick receives a $35.00 Pro Shop Voucher. Second place with 21pts went to Stephen Bright on a count back from Lee Crosby. Following with 20pts were Allan King & Ben Van Aanholt. Next with 19pts came Peter Coombes, Lars Unger, John Lovell & Kerry Kurtz. Then with 18pts were Bob Sherwood, John Clare, Eric Callcut, Wayne Chillingworth & Andrew Frost. We then had quite a number of players scoring 17pts being, James Murray, Andrew Horton, Joe Goldsworthy, Keith Crapp, Ren Chen, Alan Holzigal, Frank Henry & Max Henry. The ball list was finalised after count backs on 16pts with the winners being Stephen Fletcher, Grant Smith, Ian Bath, John Frame, Dick Sherwood & Barry Thomas. So congratulations to all our winners and for those who didn’t (such as myself), there is always next week.

Last Friday was the Central North – Boggabri Open Day. There were 23 players from within our zone on the Day. We had two representatives, Tony Gray & Paul McDougall. Because of the lower number of players they were only able to run one division. Our representatives did not feature in the major prizes, however both won golf balls, so congratulations to Tony and Paul.

This coming Friday (11th Sept) is the Central North – Spring Ridge Open Day which is to be held at the Quirindi Golf Club. There is a nomination sheet on our Notice Board, there are a few names down to play, but they are always looking for more. It is an 18 hole Competition with an 8.30 walk up start. Cost for the day is $30.00. Not sure what the catering arrangements may be, but there will be a lunch of some description.

IMPORTANT NOTE – Annual Membership Subscriptions for 2021 are now due at a cost of just $12.00. There are envelopes in the Pro Shop for you to fill in your details and enclose your $12.00. Please fill in all your details such as name, address, telephone number and email address in the spaces provided.

EARLY NOTICE FOR ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – Our Veteran Golfers Annual General Meeting will be held on the 16th OCTOBER, which will coincide with our next “SUPER FRIDAY” Event. Normally we would have a SHOTGUN START for our AGM & “SUPER FRIDAY’S” however at this stage it does not appear this will be possible due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please keep the date in your diary for a big day of golf and to make sure we achieve a Quorum for the AGM on finishing your round of golf.

This coming Friday we have our normal Tee Schedule, hitting off on the 1stTee from 7.30 – 9.30am.

Regards, Peter.
