NEWSLETTER week ending 5th October 2013 (Vets)


The major prizes in our competitions – i.e. winner and runner up – are quite often in the form of a $ credit to the member’s account with Cooroy Golf Club (The Club).

The credit must be spent at The Club – it can be used to purchase goods or services but not pay annual membership or levy.

If you have been a major prize winner don’t forget to check the balance in your club account from time to time – spending it will help The Club.


Grathan Leatherbarrow, Greens Director and member of the Vets, has expressed his thanks for the great effort and fine job The Vets are doing in cleaning up the course during the monthly Working Bees.


On Tuesday the 15th October the Women are holding their 9 hole, 3 Person Ambrose Invitation Day.  Those who played last year will recall a very enjoyable day.  The 9 hole competition begins at 8.00am with a Shotgun Start with the Fee being $5.00.  The nomination sheet to play is at the Club.   Please indicate on the sheet if you are able to supply your cart and if you are able to take a passenger with you.

Monday’s Working Bee was a great success with 25 volunteers turning up to assist with coring of the greens.

The cored greens may have been difficult to putt on for most, but certainly this was not the case for “The Little Master”, Jimmy Penman, who came in with a 77 off the stick to take out the Captain’s Choice” for best gross in A-Grade.  And what a great score with a nett 60 by Bob Brookfield (left) to post a win in B-Grade.

Please note a couple of changes to our program:

  • Next weeks’ Stroke round on Wednesday the 9th October has been changed to a Single Stableford.
  • The 4BBB on Wednesday the 23rd October will now be an 8.00am Shotgun Start.
