Week Ending 27th August 2016

Hi reader,

The Members Guest day scheduled for Wednesday, 7th September 2016 has been changed to an Invitation Day to which we have invited a number of past vets and our sponsors.  We have had a good response so far.  If you are a past Vet and have received an invitation please let me know one way or the other if you will be attending so we can confirm numbers.  We would love to catch up. There is no obligation to play golf just come along for the free lunch and some light hearted reminiscing.

A large contingent of 61 visitors from Headland and Noosa joined 39 Cooroy Vets for a record Host Day field on Monday.  Cooroy took out the top spot in each of the 4 grades with Bob Noble shooting a very impressive 73 off the stick and 47 Stableford points to take out A Grade.  Grant did a 'selfie' and presented himself with the winners prize for B Grade.  Mick McGreal and Con Russell played some great golf to take out C and D Grade respectively.

Around 25 Cooroy Vets head to Mt Coolum on Monday for the 2016 District Carnival and Championship.  Play good golf and enjoy the day.

Russ Rylance and Bruce McLean play off for the Vets 2016 Single Matchplay Championship.  Should be a good one - local boys!

Ray Nolan made it back to the clubhouse on Wednesday without getting wet but that wasn't the end of the story.  During his round Ray's buggy took an unplanned detour into the creek on the 3rd.  Ray rescued his buggy and most of his clubs but had to return after the competition on a putter recovery mission.  No word from Ray yet on success or otherwise of this mission.

Jim Turnbull displayed some great 'backspin control' with his drive off the 17th Tee on Wednesday - the ball finished up 15 metres behind the tee!

We head down to Maroochy River on Monday, 26th September 2016. The on-line nomination facility will open shortly.  As we are limited to 45 places members are encouraged to nominate early.
