Veterans Golf



 It was another “chilly” winter morning, but developed into quite a nice day for the 58 members who took part in our Competition. Naturally there is not a lot of run on the course, so scoring is not easy at the moment, however our winner and second place getting did extremely well.

Rod Liles was our winner with 20pts on a count back from Frank Henry. Rod won the $25.00 Coles Voucher, plus 2 golf balls for his effort. Standing alone in 3rd place was Barry Thomas  with 19pts. Scoring 18pts were Stephen Bright, Ian Bath & Lee Charlesworth. Next with 17pts came Laurie Boules, Peter Coombes, Phil Heffernan, Kerry Kurtz & John Peberdy. Then on 16pts were Lee Crosby, Jeffery Parker, James Murray & Bill Hely. Following with 15pts were, Gary Bryant, Neville Cross, Tony Gray, Col McInnes, John Ramsay, Bruce Grogan & Trevor Leicht. The last of our balls went to those scoring 14pts which involved quite a number of count backs. The lucky winners were, Martin Gillies, Wayne Chillingworth, Ren Chen, Andrew Horton, Allan King, Paul McDougall, Robert Black & Joe Goldsworthy.

We do have a Play of the Day this week, thanks to John R (more commonly known as Robbo, but not wishing to give his identity away). After hitting off from the 10th tee and walking down the fairway to his ball. Robbo was very proud of his tee shot declaring it must have gone at least 250mts (actually more like 150mts with a tailwind). So much was he talking on the way to his ball, that when he got there he discovered that his clubs were still next to the 10th tee. He was so engrossed in conversation with his playing partners, he had forgotten his clubs and had to walk back to get them. So he was lucky that he overstated the length of his drive, as he didn’t have far to walk back. So Robbo you win our Play of the Day trophy, which is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!

I will keep reminding members of our three “SUPER FRIDAY” events, sponsored by Premium Aged Care & Community Services to make sure you have the dates in your diary so that you will be available to play, as these events have been well supported by our members in the past and we look forward to that support continuing. The dates for our “SUPER FRIDAY’S” are the 14th AUGUST, 16th OCTOBER & 13th NOVEMBER. Each morning will consist of a SHOTGUN START, probably at 8.30am, followed by the presentations and depending on the restrictions at that time, possibly some food but at least a drink. We will also welcome our sponsors to take part in the presentations.

This coming Friday, we will have our normal hit off schedule of 7.30 – 9.30am from the 1st Tee, so we look forward to seeing you on the course and hopefully we are not too far away from being able to hold a presentation in the Club at the conclusion of play.
