Hi reader,

The inaugural Foundation Members Old Course Challenge will be played over two weeks on Wednesday, 2nd August (time start from 7:00 am) and Wednesday 9th August (8:00 am shotgun start) in conjunction with the Single Stableford competitions.  See below for more detail.

Greg Michael continues his 'purple streak' taking out A Grade on Monday's host day and the lead in the 2017 Jim Penman Host Day TrophyGreg also leads the 2017 SPotY Championship AND took out Wednesday's A Grade August Monthly Medal with a great 68.  Greg has well and truly put paid to the myth that once you join the Vets committee your golf goes downhill!  

It was great to see Tom Williams back on the course on Wednesday swinging a golf club along with five visitors enjoying the great weather.

Nomination for our host day visit to GYMPIE on Tuesday, 15th August is now available on-line - click on this link to the GYMPIE Nomination List.  You can access the Nomination Form from this list. Nominations close on 9th August.  If you need a hire-cart we recommend you book early as we are sharing the visit with Pelican Waters.

Around 40 of us head down to Maroochy River on Monday, 31st July 2017 for a 7:30 am shotgun start.

This year the Sunshine Coast District Veteran Golfers Association District Championship will be held at Mt Coolum on Monday, 28th August 2017.  If you played in last years' Championship you may receive a personal email from Mt Coolum Vets providing details for this years’ event.  Otherwise click on this link - District Championship On-Line Nomination.
