Hi reader,
Dunstan Jim


It is with great sadness that I advise the recent passing of Cooroy Golf Club patron, Jim Dunstan. Jim was remembered last week at a memorial service in the Cooroy Memorial Hall and afterwards at Cooroy RSL.

A renowned poet, Jim took great joy in seeing the funny side of life through his poems.

You can read Jim's farewell poem on our website Noticeboard or follow the 'read more' link below.


A brilliant clear day at Maleny and we did well.

1 - Peter Fryer 36
2 - John Hillis 34
3 - Grant Smallacombe 33
T4 - Greg Flanagan 32, Brian Stephen 32


We could not have asked for a better day; clear blue sky, dry course and lots of run and, field back to 80.

Keith Harkins continued his good form taking out A Grade with 41, Terry Wilson B Grade with 42 and Geoff Edwards C Grade with 41.


Recently the Greens Committee (Dave Lyons and his merry men), with input from Cyril Trist, identified a 'wish list' for 2018 of improvements to course on a hole by hole basis. You can check out the 'wish list' in the Post below.

The new course equipment is also explained.


I am heading off on holidays next week so things will go quiet on the communication front for a couple of weeks.

Results and other notifications will, of course, be available on the Vets Noticeboard.
