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.

On a beautiful morning we had a strong field of 53 players tackling the back nine with a shotgun start. We also welcomed back our frequent visitor from the Longyard, Don Chaffey. The score from our winner was absolutely exceptional with Stuart Johns scoring an incredible 25pts.( I hope you enjoy your new handicap Stuart.) Stuart chose a Club Voucher for his winning prize. In second place and with a score which on any other day would have been looking to win, was Neville Thomas with 22pts. A count back was then required to determine 3rd place on 21pts, which went to Rodney Liles ahead of John Peberdy. Next with 20pts were Bruce Grogan & Gary Bryant. We then had quite a number of players with 19pts being Peter Izod, John Clery, James Murray, Rob Black, Keith Crapp, Glen Crosby, Ian Trickett, John Clare & Ron Balderston. Then with 18pts were Lee Charlesworth, Peter Coombes, Tony Gray, Kevin Smalley, Col McInnes & Andrew Frost. We then had a hectic time with count backs for the final three places of those scoring 17pts and they went to Bob Sherwood, Tony Stannard & Max Henry.

Nearest the Pin on the 16th hole was won by Peter Izod.

Make sure you leave FRIDAY 7TH DECEMBER available for golf and then our Christmas Hams Day luncheon. It will be a Shotgun start using the back nine. We have a Committee meeting tomorrow, part of which will be to establish a start time for golf which will be followed by the presentations, including the BROCK SAMPSON PRIZE, which is awarded to the most consistent player in our membership, who has played at least 20 games during the calendar year. Straight after the presentations we will have a sit down luncheon. I will detail the major prizes next week. So this is a day not to be missed.

This coming Friday, we once again have SHOTGUN START, commencing at 7.30am from the front nine. The reason for this start is that it is the day of the VW Scramble (formally the Holden Scramble) which will commence at 10.00am.
