Hi reader,
Auction Montage


A big thanks to Michael Loe for conducting a very successful auction after a rather noisy entry to the clubhouse. We even saw some very rare items auctioned - a tie and matching socks! Thanks to all who participated in raising funds for a very good cause. We raised around $1,500 which will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, a magnificent effort.

Andre Smit couldn't attend the auction but participated via phone bidding. In the heat of bidding Andre's phone handler forgot to nominate limits which created some panicked backtracking to avoid Andre buying everything being auctioned plus the clubhouse.

Ian Mulhall walked away with a trophy, although not exactly the one he wanted; the Ben Dover Trophy for the worst score on the day. Still, it is something Ian can show the grand-kids, although he might need to come up with an innovative explanation for the rubber glove.

Jack Ruig claimed the Golden Walnut Cup for the best score on the day. Jack also took out the B Grade Monthly Medal and a NTP on 6th.

Dale (Rick) Rickard was awarded the 'best putt of the day' on 18th.

Other highlights: Errol Radley took out the A Grade Monthly Medal and Kim Bannikoff C Grade. Our bit hitters in the longest drive contest on the 2nd were: A Grade Rex Williams, B Grade Phil Mason and C Grade Geoff Edwards.

Thanks also to our 'BBQ chefs', Brian McLoughlan and Jim Henderson for the fine sausage sizzle. It was great to see Brian again looking fit and well.

Enjoyable day, although the walkers found it a bit taxing, but no joy for the Cooroy Teams in the District 4 Man Ambrose Championship held at Nambour on Tuesday.

A team from Pelican Waters took out the main prize.

We head to Mt Coolum on Monday, 29th October for a 9:00am shotgun start.


Welcome aboard to new member Terry McCulloch who will join us for his first game with the Vets next Wednesday.


Donald comes home after a day at golf and his wife Flora asks him why he doesn't play with John McDonald any more.

"Well, would you want to play with someone that regularly moves his ball, lies about his score, blames his poor putting on the state of the greens, and throws his clubs on the ground and swears after every other shot."

"No of course I wouldn't" say Flora.

" Well", Donald mutters, "neither does John".
