Today was the first round of the Ted Stanton/Bob Bailey memorial trophy which is awarded to the male player who has the best nett score over 3 stroke rounds, two of which must be the club championship rounds.

President's Report & Results Millaa Millaa 19 July

Unfortunately the weather gods were very much against us today and only 36 men and 5 women made the trip to Millaa Millaa for the first round of the Patrons trophy. The weather deteriorated as the round progressed and so the reluctant decision was made to declare the event a 9 holer. 
I am not sure at this stage if this will still count for the patrons trophy but it seems fitting that those bravehearts who made the effort should be rewarded. We will wait and see what the committee and of course, the Patron think about this.
It is my pleasure to welcome 3 new members to our fold, they are Graeme Chappel from Cairns, John Hall from Warburton and David Marshall from Mullumbimby.
The sponsor today was DRUMMOND GOLF of Cairns and we thank them for the store vouchers on offer today.
MENS WINNER; Gary Tudehope 19 points.
RUNNER UP; Rod Ingram 18 points.

President's Report & Results Gordonvale 12 July

We were pleased to have 85 men and 21 women start at Gordonvale course today. The game was a stableford event for the annual consistency trophy.
The sponsor for the event was CAZALY’S AFL CLUB who donated the venue vouchers for todays winners, so you can well imagine my disappointment as president, when some of our people insisted on wearing rugby league attire, one poor confused soul even being seen wearing both the maroon and the blue jersey at different times during the day. Perhaps we should have a collection and buy Mr Gibb a Suns jersey.
Seriously, a big thank you to Cazalys for the interest they have shown in Veterans golf.

Next Game Gordonvale 12 July


Our game next week is a single stableford Consistency event at Gordonvale.

The course is looking good, with the drains mowed (but still to be avoided as water is hanging around in places, mainly under the bridges), & although the greens are still a work in progress, they are tracking well.

Sponsor for the day is Cazalys AFL.

See you there.

Our game next week is a single stableford event at Atherton for the Ted Thomasson trophy.

The game is sponsored by Golf World.

As we've had a few fine days which look like continuing, the course should be in good condition.

Everyone will no doubt be looking forward to a little light relief after the marathon election campaign, so we should see good numbers there!
