Week Ending 3rd December 2016


Hi reader,

Congratulations to Kevin Tonkin for taking out our 2016 Medal of Medals trophy.  Kevin had a very good day also taking out the A Grade December Monthly Medal, Best Gross (which Kevin sponsors) and Captain's Choice.

It was great to see so many past winners wearing their Monthly Medal golf shirt prizes on Wednesday.  The shirt design is quite impressive with a different colour each month - worth winning.

We are pleased to be able to tell you that our following Prize Sponsors have all agreed to continue in 2017.  A good measure of success for a sponsorship is that it creates a win/win for each party.  Feedback from our sponsors has been very positive so a special thank you to members for supporting these businesses.  Whenever you use their services don't forget to mention Cooroy Vets.

Over the next few weeks Rod or Grant will speak to members about member prize sponsorship for 2017.  If you sponsored in 2016 and are happy to continue in 2017 or would like to be added to the list of member prize sponsors just drop Rod an email or speak to any of the Vets Committee.

Our 2017 Competition and Events Program is complete.  Grant will give an insight into what is on offer at our Xmas lunch.  It will be another busy year with plenty of opportunities to play golf, both at Cooroy and away.   

To add more variety and interest you can expect to see changes to our Wednesday NTP competition in 2017.

The $1,000 raised through our 2016 Prostate Cancer Fund Raiser will be donated to ManUp for Prostate Cancer.  We have quite a few members who have been through the experience and are more than happy to talk to others about it.  A chat with someone who has been through prostate cancer can sometimes ease concerns.


Holiday Season Stableford

The event is open to male financial members of Cooroy Vets and visiting male Veteran Golfers. 

This years competition will be played over the following 3 Wednesdays:

21st December 2016 - Time start 6:30am to 8:30am
28th December 2016 - Time start 6:30am to 8:30am
4th January 2017 - Time start 6:30am to 8:30am

Competition Fee - $12.00.

All 3 nomination sheets will go out at the same time.  There will be no white board write-up or call to the tee so each group needs to be aware of the group they are nominated to follow and tee off accordingly.   There will be no lucky draw and no weekly run down. 

Your handicap will be your 'daily handicap' on the day of the competition.

There will be a weekly prize for A, B and C Grade depending on player numbers but is expected to be: 1st Prize - $25, 2nd Prize - $20, 3rd Prize - $15.

In addition to weekly prizes there will be 10 "all in aggregate” prizes, the value of which will be conditional on player numbers.  We will announce prize values closer to the event.  The aggregate of your Stableford score over the 3 competitions will determine placings for aggregate prizes.

There will be a single NTP on the 6th Hole (all in) each week sponsored by smallPRINT Australia Pty Ltd with a prize of 1 dozen golf balls each week.

All other prizes will be in the form of Member Account Credits and will be presented on our '2017 Opening Day', Wednesday, 11thJanuary 2017.
