Week ending 27th April 2013 (Vets)


2012 11 28 - Vets Captain thumb

Captain-Grant Smallacombe

It was nice to see the “Tendulkar” of the Cooroy Vets back in action on Wednesday.  “The Little Master” Jimmy Penman showed he has lost none of his form during his break from the game.

Dave Walder has now featured in 3 wins in a row.  Are we in the presence of another “Black Caviar”?   Time will tell.

Walker’s, Walker’s, Walker’s.

Having recently placed some of our walker’s a bit far away from the clubhouse, I would like to apologize; it was not done on purpose.  To assist, so this may not occur again could all walkers please mark the time sheet with a W next to their name for all shotgun start events.

We can’t always fit all of our walkers close to the clubhouse, so we will then put them close to the green keeper’s shed, this you can drive to.  Sometimes it is a good idea to check your tee allocation before unloading your clubs

Next time you see Graham Laing shake his hand.  Graham scored his first ever eagle on the 16th in the 9 hole walk around on the 17th April in very trying conditions.


Don Pigdon has received medical attention to one of his knees and will be out of golf for about three weeks.

Don’t worry Don the job of taking out the NTP markers is still yours when you return.


Welcome to new member Matt Brindley.  Matt is also a new member of Cooroy Golf Club.

Ordinary membership now stands at 114.

We had our first International visitor on Wednesday – Aloise from Luxemburg.  Aloise played with Doug Allisone and from all accounts they immediately realized they could communicate in a language other than English.  

RESULTS FROM 22nd APRIL 2013 (Monday)

A field of 56 players enjoyed a beautiful autumn day for the visit by Caloundra.
