Week Ending 3rd September 2016

Hi reader,

Col Easton's funeral will be held at 10:00am on Tuesday, 6th September at Drysdale Funerals in Tewantin. Vets members attending are requested to wear our apple/black vets logo golf shirt.  After the service we will return to Cooroy Golf Club for a commemorative drive down the 1st fairway.

The Vets Program of Events for the remainder of 2016 is now available on the Event Calendar on the club website.  Click on the following link:


After a rather chilly start it turned into a perfect day for the SCDVGA 2016 District Championships at Mt Coolum.  Home course advantage reflected in the strong all round performance by Mt Coolum.  Cooroy sent a contingent of its best and performed well with Mike Miklenda and Dave Lyons taking out 1st and 3rd in their respective grades.  Tony Foster and Mike Smith featured in the NTP winners.  Congratulations on a great effort.  Full results of the championship are available in the Post below.

Around a dozen past Vets (health permitting) will be joining us for lunch on the Invitation Day next Wednesday with a number also playing golf.  It is a 4 Man Ambrose and 8:00am shot gun start.  There will be a number of extra contests on the course and a mega raffle with 16 prizes on offer; $2.00 a ticket or 3 for $5.00.  Gavin Moore from Madill's will also be joining us for golf and lunch.

There are 36 nominations so far for our visit to Maroochy River on Monday, 26th September 2016.  We have sole visitor status this year with a limit of 45 places.  If we don't fill these places Maroochy River may decide to invite another club next year in which case the cap on visitors must be shared between visiting clubs.  This will reduce the number of places available to Cooroy Vets.  Members are encouraged to nominate - it's an interesting course and playing might just improve your standing in the 2016 Jim Penman Host Day Championship.  Click on the following link to nominate.


We visit Caloundra on Friday, 30th September 2016.  The on-line Nomination facility will be open shortly.
