Vets News - May 2019


Another month has passed and unfortunately there were only three competition days due to Anzac Day falling on Thursday 25 April.  I have been advised that a few Vets suffered from golf withdrawal symptoms due to the lack of Vet competitions.  Hopefully as there are five Vet competition days in May this should overcome the “down time” experienced by those members in April.   


Albert and Logan Teams Event

The first round of the Teams Event was conducted at Windaroo Golf Course on Friday 12 April.  The Carbrook Veterans found the course challenging and as a result did not score well on the day.  The team from Windaroo won the day and unfortunately the Carbrook team are currently in last place.  We will do better!

The next round of the competition will be held at Mt Warren Park Golf Course on Friday 24 May.  If you have nominated to play, please advise Glen Early of any changes to that arrangement as soon as possible.  It is important that we field a full-strength team on that day.


Away Game – Palm Meadow, 4 July

Nominations are now being accepted for the game/Vets competition at Palm Meadows Golf Club on Thursday 4 July.  At this stage 86 people have nominated to participate and a significant number have paid either a $20 deposit or the $45.00 total playing fee. The $45.00 playing fee includes green fees and a shared golf cart.  Normal Vet day prizes, including NTP and Approach Shots will apply.  All though some time away, please confirm as soon as possible if you will be playing on the day so that we can reserve enough playing spots with Palm Meadows Golf Club.

Please see Ron Cox to nominate for the day, to make payment and/or obtain additional information.
