Hi reader,


Coring and scarifying of greens takes place on Monday, 5th March and Tuesday, 6th March with the course CLOSED on 5th March for this activity.

In the circumstances we have moved our FEBRUARY Monthly Medal to Wednesday, 28th February. We play a Stableford - 'Pick your Poison' on Wednesday, 7th March.

There are no changes to start times for these events - time starts from 6:30 am.


2018 02 19 - Mt Coolum
Greg kicked off his initiation as Host Day Captain with a very large field of 107 and did a great job. It gets easier from here on Greg, we promise!!

Always a strong supporter of Host Days, Mt Coolum sent 67 players. Mt Coolum don't play a regular weekly Vets competition which no doubt contributes to the interest in playing Host Days.

Another hot and humid day saw Cooroy more than hold its' own and take the major prizes in each of the four Grades: A Grade - Errol Radley 39, B Grade - Keith (in good form) Harkins 40, C Grade - Ken (I'm liking my new clubs) McKay 41 and D Grade - Warren Hay 40.

The rundown went to 36.


Marty's Hut and a free hamburger and drink or DRENCHED. Unfortunately the weather won, although 33 hardy souls did venture out onto the course with varying degrees of foolhardiness before returning to the clubhouse drenched.

We ran an abbreviated competition with the following results:

4 Holes: Winner - Michael Hill 11 c/b $25, Runner Up - Stuart Wright 11 $15
6 Holes: Winner - Joe Daniels 12 c/b $25, Runner Up - Dale Rickard $15
9 Holes: Winner - Jim Prendergast 20 $25, Runner Up John Kelly 17 c/b $15
NTP: 3rd (Sweeney Todd) - Graham Laing
Lucky Draw: John Butler (wine), Dave Chapman (wine)

Marty's Hut has been rescheduled to next week.


Our ANZAC Remembrance Day 4 Man Ambrose competition on Wednesday, 18th April 2017, will be sponsored again this year by the Cooroy RSL Sub Branch in conjunction with ex-servicemen from Cooroy Vets.

If you are an ex-serviceman and would like to contribute to the sponsorship of the day speak to Errol Radley.
