Hi reader,
Stewart John - Gold Member Award
Vets Captain, Grant Smallacombe presented John Stewart with his Gold Member Award and Golf Shirt for achieving 25 years playing participation with Cooroy Veterans’ Golf Club. Congratulations John, 80 years young.

Rumour has it that John misquoted his age so keen was he to join the Vets!
A field of 86 and hotly contested 2 Man Ambrose on Wednesday saw a tie for first place between Team Kennedy (Peter Kennedy and Dale Rickard) and Team Clemow (Brian Clemow and Tom Williams).

Team Henderson took out third place. A hard fought battle saw Team Loe and Team Harkins tie for fourth place.

Andrew Dick, Mike Smith, Ian Mulhall and Rod Booth hit off earlyish to complete a round of golf before Andrew, Mike and Ian turned their hand to preparing the sausage sizzle - which was more satisfying! As usual, Rod was consigned to the exchequer counting out the money. Brian McLoughlan came in to assist with the sausage sizzle and catch up with old (well oldish) friends - thanks Brian.

Next Wednesday is the February Monthly Medal and time start from 6:30 am.


The District 2 Man Aggregate Stableford will be held on Friday, 23rd February at Maroochy River – 7:30 am shotgun start. Cooroy has been allocated space for 6 teams – 12 players. The cost of $30.00 per player includes Competition Fee and Lunch. Hire Cart extra.

Nominations close on 12th February. If you are interested in playing speak to Grant Smallacombe, but be quick.


The 2018 Closed Championship will be held at Bargara Golf Club (Slope 115) on Monday, 21st May and Tuesday 22nd May. Entrants must hold a current Golf Australia handicap and must be a financial member of a Veteran Golf Club or Association affiliated with the AVGU and must have played in at least three veteran competitions in the six months prior to the Championship.
