VETS: Newsletter weekending 6th May 2017


We are pleased to advise that with the exception of our Host Day on Monday, 22nd May, all future shotgun starts will be 8:00 am rather than 8:30 am.

This is our preferred shotgun start time and has the additional benefit of allowing social visitors onto the course a little earlier on Wednesdays.


Another great days’ golf on Tuesday after an early morning scenic drive to Maleny.

A Maleny member collected the major prize with a very impressive with 48 points.  However, there were some good results from the Cooroy contingent: Greg Michael 38, Jason Egan 34 and Aileen Morton 33NTP’s went to Chris Michael, Brian Stephan and Don Clelland.

We enjoyed a sausage sizzle, lots of laughs and to show how much we enjoyed the day, we left a few things there – Grant’s car keys, Terry Lyon’s favourite hat and a ball or two from others.  The good news is Grant’s car keys were found on the 2nd fairway but sadly, Terry’s hat is given up as lost.
