Vets – NEWSLETTER week ending 15th November 2014


Congratulations to Lionel Willett and Alec Lowe for being awarded Life Membership at the Cooroy Golf Club AGM on Wednesday night.  It is great to see that their past efforts have been recognized, and that they have both been rewarded by this honor.

Numbers were down in this week’s competition due to the fact that we had a Host Day at Tewantin/Noosa the same day as our regular competition day.  We still managed to have 60 starters and there were quite a few good scores.

John Butler (left) with 41 points took the A-Grade honors’ on a count back from Brad Jordison.  Greg Flanagan has returned with fire in his belly and scored a very impressive 46 points in B-Grade.   Jim Turnbull has been playing some good golf, and with 41 points was a winner in the C-Grade.   Kevin Olsen chipped in for an eagle on the 8th hole and therefore picks up 6 balls for his effort.

Thanks to Bob Noble for his donation of 9 balls for the “Captain’s Choice” won by Brad Jordison.

On Monday the 17th we are playing host to Woodford, just to confirm that it an 8.30am shotgun start not 8.00am as first advertised. We have made the effort to have a catered meal available for $10.00.  Please support this.

As you are probably aware, next Wednesday’s 2 Man Ambrose is to be a fundraiser for “Legacy”.    It is an 8.00am shotgun start and there is a Gold Coin Donation Sausage Sizzle at completion of play. There will be a couple of other activities on the course that will also require a gold coin to participate.   Please make sure you bring a pocket full of gold coins.


Ian Lumsden won B Grade with the only other Cooroy player to collect being John Kelly with a ball in the run down.
