Vets – Newsletter week ending 24th October 2015


A good attendance on Tuesday made for a very enjoyable morning when the ladies invited us to take part in their 9 hole, 4 person Ambrose event.  Thank you to all who took part and to those that offered their services when the call went out for more players.

Timothy Martin - with blackWe played Wednesday’s 4BBB Stableford in warm conditions.  We trust you all enjoyed the burger and drink, plus a chat with Marty (left) at “Marty’s Hut”.  Once again Jim Henderson and Ian Mulhall did a great job with the cooking.

President Kevin Crundall blew the course to pieces, as he with Rod Roemermann finished with 53 points.  Their great score won on a count back from 2nd placed Bruce Wilshire & Dennis Beckhaus.

Mal Waller from Nudgee joined Peter Buchbach for a game of golf.  I trust you enjoyed the day Mal and we hope to see you again.

Thank you Nick Kostalas for donating balls for the NTP’s and run down – they were well received by all.

Be sure to say thanks to our latest sponsor Con Russell.  Yes Con has now donated his winning lucky draw prize back to us two times in three weeks.

It proves that it pays to come into the club at completion of play and check if you have won a prize.

Next week is our November Monthly Medal, even though it is played in October.

It is also the 1st round of our Vet’s Championship.  The following week (Nov 4th) is also a stroke event and the 2nd round of our Championship. You will retain the handicap that you play off on week 1 for the 2nd round.  Good luck to all participants.

The Vet’s will be running a 4 week Stableford competition over the Xmas break this year.  All four time sheets will go out at the same time.

Wednesday the 16th, 23rd, and 30th December will be timed starts.  The competition will finish with a shotgun start and presentation on Wednesday, 6th January 2016.  The winners will be decided from their best 3 scores over the 4 rounds.  There will be substantial prizes for the best TEN players (all in), plus a weekly A,B, & C grade prize.  There will also be a NTP (all in) on a selected hole each week.

Just a quick word on rules, a card length is a card length.  If you wish to play your ball outside this margin you can do so (within the rules), but it will cost you a penalty drop.

If you are playing with someone who breaches any rules of golf it is your responsibility as their marker to impose the appropriate penalty if they don’t.



We overlooked recording Terry Wilson’s 40 points at our recent visit to Headland to take out B Grade.  Apologies for the oversight – great effort Terry.
