Week ending 3rd February 2018

Hi reader,


Online nomination for our visit to Mt Coolum on Monday, 26th February 2018 is now open. It is a 7:30 am shot gun start with registration by 7:00 am.

Nominations close on Friday, 16th February 2018. Mt Coolum is a great golf day out so don't delay nominating.


The whiteboard notes on Wednesday were quite clear!

Local Rules - ‘no cheating’
Preferred lie through the green
Today is a Stroke round - count them all
but please also enter your Stableford score

Those counting the fewest strokes for the Kevin Tonkin sponsored, Best Gross were; Bob Noble 77, Greg Michael 80 and Greg Flanagan 80. 'Flano' took out the A grade Monthly Medal with nett 65 on count back.

Dale Rickard collected the B Grade Monthly Medal with nett 65. Andrew Carson collected C Grade with nett 66.

Michael Loe had an altercation with the 13th dam - the dam won, although Michael said it was merely a scratch and called it a draw.

Ray Nolan returned to the club house a bit grumpy and left failing to collect a bottle of wine in the Lucky Draw. Wine not collected on day is forfeited - hard but fair.


John, a long time member of the Vets, passed away age 80 on 30th January 2018. John didn't play much golf in the last few years but remained a staunch supporter and member of the 'Bush Boys' sponsor group.

Our condolences to the family and friends.

NEXT WEEK- 7th February 2018

Next Wednesday is an American Foursome - yes, one of those strange golf competitions we play once a year.

We think it might have been mentioned in the Presidential State of the Union address - there will be some Trump Prizes seeing it is an American styled event.


Our Internationals All Stars vs The Aussies day on Wednesday, 26th September 2018 is a fiercely contested annual competition - after all, an almost bottomless mug of beer is at stake.

The coveted Pewter Mug is currently firmly in possession of the International All Stars - two years in a row - but this can't be allowed to continue. The day is still a way off but already there are rumours about scheming underway to topple the All Stars; passports are being scrutinised.

We are looking for a sponsor for this competition. You can sponsor individually or preferably, get a group together. Have a chat to Grant or Jim Henderson if you are interested but, don't mention the rumours to Jim as he is the All Stars Captain. I did but I think I got away with it.


It is a condition of competition at Cooroy Golf Club that a player cannot mark their own card. Breach of Condition – disqualification.

It is also required that the markers name clearly appear on the scorecard and their score recorded in the markers column.

The Vets have also adopted this rule.
