Veterans Golf




The number of members playing last Friday was down a bit on previous weeks with 43 players taking part, with play on the front nine, but it was still a good result. Winner for the morning with a top score of 21pts was Wayne Smyth. Congratulations Wayne, you have won a $30.00 Pro Shop Voucher. Second place with 20pts went to Jeffery Parker and in third place with 19pts was Frank Henry. We then had two players scoring 18pts being Kerry Kurtz & Ren Chen. Next with 17pts came Bruce Grogan, John Frame & John Lovell. Following with 16pts were Allan King, Neville Cross & David Easterman. Then those scoring 15pts were Robert Black, Dick Sherwood, Ben Van Aanholt, Andrew Frost & Bob Cannon. Finally after count backs two players scoring 14pts won golf balls, being Ron Balderston & Trevor Leicht.

Nearest the Pin on the 9th hole was won by Kerry Kurtz, who incidentally got the “Birdie”.

  This coming FRIDAY 12th MARCH is our next “SUPER FRIDAY” sponsored by PREMIUM AGED & COMMUNITY SERVICES. Unfortunately we are not allowed to have a shotgun start, which would have meant we all would finish together. So instead of then having “finger food” and the presentations, we will have a ticket attached to every players card, entitling you to a free drink of your choice (including Alcohol)  from the “View”. When you have your drink, I would ask that members come down to the main bar area, meet a member of the team from our sponsor and if possible stay for the presentations, where winners will be rewarded with increased value of prizes for 1st place a $50.00 Pro Shop Voucher, 2nd place a $40.00 Pro Shop Voucher and 3rd place a $30.00 Pro Shop Voucher. Then 4th, 5th & 6th receive 3 golf balls each. We will then have an extended ball list. In the past with our “SUPER FRIDAY” Competition, we have had large fields, so we are once again looking for that to be the case. Get your name down early to make sure you don’t miss out. As I am writing this little newsletter there are still quite a number of tee spots available.

Another little point on entering your score into the computer, is before you press OK (in the bottom right corner of the screen) make sure the number of points in total  at  the bottom of the screen corresponds with the points scored on your card. The computer is always correct, (I hate saying that, but it is true) so if they do not correspond, you will have entered an incorrect score on your card for a certain hole or holes. After you have processed your card with the correct score, then hand it in.

Regards, Peter.
