Week Ending 24th September 2016

Hi reader,

2016 SINGLE MATCHPLAY CHAMPIONSHIP

Another of our prestigious annual events has been settled for 2016.

Bruce McLean is the 2016 Single Match Play Champion taking out the title with a win over Russ Rylance 4/3.

CATERING - WEDNESDAY

Catering has been brought back 'in house' with the following menu available on Wednesdays:

• Sandwiches

• Hot Dogs

• Pies

• Sausage Rolls

• Cakes 

 

NEXT WEDNESDAY

Next week is a single Stableford competition with an 8:00am shot gun start.

It also includes one of our annual competitions that has almost reached State of Origin status - the Internationals vs Aussies Trophy.

The field will be divided into 3 separate teams where the best 10 scores from each team count to win the coveted trophy.  Last year’s winning team “The True Blue Aussies” captained by Dave Lyons are throwing out the challenge to the “International All Stars” and the “Australian Attack”. 

The two Captains of the challenging teams Jim Henderson and Grant Smallacombe have vowed to turn the tables and put a stop to Dave’s constant bragging.

MEMBERSHIP

Please welcome new member, Gavin Moffatt.

UPDATE

As you may be aware we have been in discussion with Cooroy Golf Club on a number of matters over recent weeks.  These discussions have now reached a successful conclusion.

A special thanks to Wayne and Grant for their efforts in arriving at a sensible and successful outcome that will benefit both The Club and Vets.

Here is a summary of the outcome.

GREEN FEES

The previously advised increase in Green Fees paid to Cooroy Golf Club to $7.00 from $6.00 will revert to $6:00 effective immediately.

The 2016 Cooroy Golf Club AGM in November will consider general cost increases for 2017.

SHOT GUN STARTS

The following times will apply for 2017:

Summer shotgun starts: 8:00am - Sept 1st to April 30th.
Winter shotgun starts:  8:30am - May 1st to August 31st.

SPONSORSHIP

At our instigation and to lighten the cost burden Cooroy Golf Club will no longer sponsor the 13th NTP.  We thank The Club for their past sponsorship of this hole.

Under a new 2 year arrangement smallPRINT AUSTRALIA Pty Ltd will sponsor this NTP with the prize being a ProV1 Golf Ball Sleeve ensuring this NTP will be even more hotly contested in future.  The 13th NTP will now be known as the “smallPRINT strawberries for pigs sleeve” - thanks to a suggestion by Chris Simpson

As part of this arrangement the Vets will retain naming rights to the 13th Tee.

It would be remiss not to once again thank smallPRINT for their generous support of Cooroy Vets - they also sponsor our host days.  Although they are based in Adelaide we benefit from the owners love of golf and association with Grant.  These benefits have a flow-on effect as all golf ball prizes are purchased from Cooroy Golf Club by smallPRINT.  As a thank you Cooroy Golf Club recently hosted the owners and a number of their staff for a round of golf at Cooroy which, from all reports, was appreciated and enjoyed by all involved. 

2017 VETS COMPETITION and EVENTS PROGRAM

Our 2017 Program is nearly complete with 14 Wednesday and 9 Monday shotgun starts agreed.  Grant is finalising negotiations with a couple of clubs for a combined Home day so we end up with a larger field.

We will circulate the Program once it is finalised.
