Veterans Golf




Tamworth Veterans Golf is an affiliated Club of the NSW Veterans Golf Association. Membership is open to all male and female registered golfers over the age of 55 years.

Tamworth Veterans members have an annual membership fee of just $10.00. Out of this $10.00 affiliation fees of $3.00 goes to Central North VGA and $3.00 to the NSW VGA. When annual membership fees are paid, you receive the NSW Veterans Golf Association booklet, containing all the information of when Veterans competitions are played each week throughout the state. This is of particular interest to those Vets who wish to travel and still want the opportunity to play golf.

Tamworth Veterans play a 9 hole Stableford competition every Friday morning. Our hit off times during the winter season are from 7.00 – 9.30am, with presentation of major prize winner and an extensive ball list following within minutes of the completion of the mornings play. Tee slots are to be booked on the Club computer, or your personal computer by going to the Tamworth Golf Club web site and follow the links to the Friday morning booking portal.

A weekly newsletter is emailed to all members, detailing each weeks results and other items of interest concerning Veterans golf within our Central North Zone.

Come along and join us on a Friday morning for a friendly, relaxing 9 holes of golf, then join us in the Club for the presentations and hospitality of the Club with your fellow Veterans golfers.

You would be forgiven for thinking you were in Scotland for the British Open the way the wind was blowing on Friday morning, it seemed it was at “gale force” most of the morning. However it didn’t affect the scoring of some of the 43 members who braved the conditions, particularly Laurie Boules who had a great round, scoring 24pts. Laurie chose a Club Voucher as his winning prize. Second place, with another good score of 21pts went to Adrian Nichols. After quite a number of count backs, Norm Bonanno with 18pts came in third. The other players with 18pts were Ron Balderston, John O’Connor, Dick Sherwood, Eric Callcut & Noel Dunford. We then had quite a number of members scoring 17pts being, Lindsay Hobson, Stuart Johns, Peter Coombes, Phil Heffernan, John Robinson, Rod Doolan, Ren Chen, Bill O’Brien & Andrew Frost. The final two golf balls, after a number of count backs with 16pts went to Bruce Grogan & Peter Izod.

The golf ball which is normally allocated to Nearest the Pin was added to the normal ball list as no one hit the 9th green, which is understandable with the wind as it was.

This coming Friday the 27th is the Central North Veterans Golf – Longyard Open Day. The nominations close tomorrow afternoon, the form is on the cabinet under our Vets Weekly Results Sheet. Also on this day, all golfers will be playing for the Veteran Golfers Championship of 2018. Trophies are to be awarded for the best Scratch score and the best Handicap Stableford score. Each winner will receive an engraved Pewter Tankard and have their name engraved on a shield. These trophies are in addition to the normal Open Day Division prizes.

Lost Property – Last Friday, a Callaway-Big Bertha wood cover (or metal these days), was handed in to me. It looks as if it is for a fairway wood as it is too small for a driver. I will have it with me this Friday, so if you think it may be yours, come and see me. If no one claims it from me on Friday, I will leave it in the Pro Shop.

On Friday at our course, naturally we have our normal Friday morning 9 hole Competition, this week hitting off from the 10th tee with our normal time schedule of 7.30 – 9.30am. So if you are not going to the Longyard, we look forward to seeing you on our course and then in the Club for the presentations.
