Vets News - August 2018


Once again, due to rain that only seems to occur on a Thursday, the monthly medal competition that was planned for 12 July had to be postponed.  I am a little bit suspicious that a rain dance may have been arranged by some members who prefer to play games other than stroke??  However, the monthly medal game was rescheduled and played on Thursday 2 August.  Results for the July monthly medal can be found below.


Membership continues to grow and is now 195.  The increase in Vet membership has created a growing number of players wishing to play in the Thursday competition.  Booking a spot in the field has become difficult and unfortunately some golfers are experiencing difficulties in getting a time slot.   It is necessary to book early and if a spot is not available when you do book, place yourself on the waiting list.  Please ensure that if you have booked and are unable to attend, cancel early so that others wishing to play are able to gain a playing position.

Albert and Logan District Single Championships

Round one of the competition was conducted at Mt Warren Park on Friday 13 July.  Ron Carr and Gail Hayes each won their division in the Nett competition and another 11 Carbrook Veteran Golfers nett scores were in the top ten positions in their grade. 

Kimio Sumitomo, with a gross score of 86, leads the Men Division 2 Gross.  Seven other Carbrook players had gross scores within the top 10.


Congratulations to the Carbrook players and it is hoped that they continue to play well in the remaining rounds.

The next round will be conducted at Redland Bay on 17 August.


Ormiston Rise, Tranquil Waters Challenge

The first round of the 2018Challenge was conducted at Wynnum Golf Club on 16 July. The Carbrook team put in a great effort but unfortunately after the first round Carbrook is running fourth.  I am sure that will change after the next three rounds.

The next round will be conducted at Carbrook Golf Club on Friday 31 August.
