There is also an opportunity to play in District Championships. To participate you will need to nominate. Information regarding the district competition is available from the Veterans Committee

News

Monday 9th December the Veterans will be playing a Single Stableford with a 8.00am shotgun start. All players will be required to pay $15 competition fee plus $5 towards the cost of the Presentation lunch being provided on the day. In an endeavour to calculate numbers for catering purposes it would be appreciated if players could indicate their intention of either attending or not attending the luncheon following the game. On this day as well as the luncheon, the Committee will be awarding the prizes for all of the Championship Winners throughout the year plus the Eclectic Winners and it is hoped that as many recipients could be present on the day to receive their award.

Monday 25 November will see Bribie Isalnd visiting us in the return game between the 2 clubs. Due to traffic problems uncounted by them getting to our course, the game will have a 9:30am shotgun start and Not a 9:00am shotgun start as currently listed in the programme fixtures.
