Hi reader
The Jim and Ilene Penman Memorial Garden at the 18th Tee is complete thanks to funding by Cooroy Vets, garden design, construction and oversight by Grant Smallacombe and Jim Henderson and the efforts of Vets volunteers.

Jim served as Vets Captain for sixteen years, Captain of Cooroy Golf Club for many years and is the only person to be honoured with life membership of both clubs.

Club honour boards are also a reminder of Jim’s prowess as a golfer.
Ilene, herself a good golfer, ably partnered and supported Jim throughout their life together.

The garden will be maintained by Cooroy Vets members as they play past each Wednesday and 'tip the driver' in memory of Jim.

The memorial garden is a fitting tribute to true stalwarts of golf and their support for veteran golfers.

Grass Nursery

A nursery is in the making on the far side of the 14th fairway to provide replacement grass for cases where foreign grass is polluting greens.

The nursery area is designated GUR so free drop away no closer to hole.
