Week ending 16th February 2019

Hi reader,
2019 02 13 Newsletter


No need to bring a packed lunch next Wednesday as there will be a compulsory stop at Marty's Hut for a free hamburger and drink.

A fire in the switch board in the clubhouse caused quite a bit of chaos on Wednesday. Still, was this good enough reason for Vice Captain Jim (aka Irish) to barricade in the Vets Captain so he would have a drinking companion. Given the hot day the answer is probably yes!


Welcome aboard to new members Carey Downes and Mike O'Donnell.

We still have a number of annual subscription renewals outstanding. If you haven't renewed yet or are unsure if you have renewed see Rod Booth as soon as possible.

NOTE: Our membership year runs from January to December.


A clean sweep with Cooroy taking all the prizes apart from a couple of NTP's.

Jason Egan took A Grade with 41, Mick McGreal B Grade with 42 and Bob Atkin C Grade with 43.

WEDNESDAY 13th February 2019

Despite very hot and humid conditions we had a very good field of 86 for a 'Men's Red Course' Stableford sponsored by the R-Souls of Golf (Tony Bernhagen, John Cairns, Jason Egan, Greg Flanagan and Ray Lally).

Highlights of day: A Hole-in-One on the 12th by Paddy Knapp - well done.

Visitor from Nambour, Kim Evans, took A Grade with 43 from Bob Noble 42 and Andrew Dick 41. Kim also captured the prized Noosa Outlook Specialty Meats NTP voucher on the 15th.

Lance Horn shot 39 to take B Grade from Jim Prendergast 38 on count back from Ron Blount 38.

Mike Smith played well to record 38 taking C Grade from Rob Powell 37 and John McNamara 37. Mike is heading into hospital shortly for some knee 're-landscaping' and will have plenty of great shots to relive while recovering. We expect to see him back on the course very shortly.


We are expecting a very big field (we hope to break our record) on Monday, 18th February.

It will assist if players arrive and register early. It is an 8:00 am shotgun start with registration by 7:30 am at the latest.
