Vets – NEWSLETTER week ending 12th April 2014


Thank you Mike Miklenda for your sponsorship of Wednesday’s 2 Man Ambrose event. Also thanks to Ashley Riedel who donated 2 sleeves of top quality golf balls for Mike’s day.

The event was played in what is called sixes; the idea was put to me by Kerry Martin and added a bit of variety to what we normally do. If anyone has any other good ideas, I am always ready to listen.

Our winners obviously didn’t hit too many bad shots between them, as Kevin Tonkin and Bob Noble carded 6 birdies and 12 pars to finish with a nett 59.75.

Well done everyone for supporting the score card raffle. We sold over 90 tickets to the Vets, 20 to the Ladies, and close to 40 to the Saturday players.  The Winning tickets were, 1st Brent Jesberg, 2nd John Stewart, 3rd Dave Wilson, 4th Stuart Wright, 5th Graeme Finn, and 6th Fay Wiggins. The new match day score cards should be available in a few weeks.

We are about to put in an order for Cooroy Veteran golf shirts so if you want to order one see Grant as soon as possible.


A big thanks must go to Grant for his efforts in organizing and selling the raffle to raise funds for a new score card – $750.00 was raised.
