NEWSLETTER week ending 14th September 2013 (Vets)


We were paid a very fleeting visit by a mystery Captain for the presentation!

We enjoyed fine weather and had a very good attendance for our 4 Man Ambrose Event.

The changes to most of our normal tee positions sure made you think a bit more on which club to select. These types of events are meant to be fun and from the vast majority of comments that I have received it appears that most players enjoyed the day.

It was also great to see so many players stay for the presentations.  This is a great way to spend some time with some of our newer members and make them feel welcome.

Thank you must go to “The Golf Tragics” (aka Dave Passenger, Brad Lavender, Alan Emery, Rod Booth, Graham Laing), Kevin Crundall, Rod Booth, Steve Howes, Jim Henderson, yours truly, and Cooroy Golf Club Manager Wayne Patston for donating the trophy’s.

This coming Monday we will be hosting Gympie and Tin Can Bay, it looks like being a big day with 94 starters at this stage.

Next Wednesday is a Single Stableford and will see the start of our Summer Season with the first group of players teeing off at 6.30am.


Congratulations to Graham Laing and Terry Lyons for making it through to the Single Match Play final.

They will be our joint Starters next week and then head out to play the final at the end of the field.  Wish them both good golf when you register.
