Vets News - July 2018


With the increase in Vet membership, playing numbers are being maintained at a high level.  Each week up to 120 players are competing in the Thursday competitions.  You do need to book early to gain a playing time slot.  If you have booked and are unable to attend please withdraw your name as soon as possible so as to give those on the waiting list and other members an early opportunity to gain a playing position. The course continues to be presented in an excellent condition and, with the cooling down of the days, playing on the Carbrook golf course is most enjoyable.   



Hole in One

Congratulations to Ian McCamish for his first - time hole in one achieved on Thursday 14 June.  Ian was able to achieve this milestone on the 11th hole during the monthly medal stroke round of the Veteran’s competition.  Ian went on to gain the third place position in his division, on a count back, with a nett score of 69.  Well done Ian.
