2018 First Game at Mareeba


We hope you are rested, relaxed & ready to reduce your handicap in 2018.

Our first game for the season is a single stableford event next Tuesday 6 Feb at Mareeba.

We will, as usual, be playing fortnightly for the next few weeks, although in response to several comments made last year (see, we do listen to you), our new Pres has arranged a surprise extra game for you at the end of March as follows:

Tuesday 27 March at Mirage Country Club for $35pp with cart.  (Players can pay an extra $10 if they want their scores to be included in the Mirage Daily Comp on that same day (no compulsion)).

Provisional number booked is 40, but this can be expanded depending on response.  If you are interested in playing on that day, please let us know at registration over the next few weeks.  We will require a booking fee of $10 to reserve your place, which will come off your entry on the day, or you can put it towards the entry for the Mirage Daily Comp.

Registration 7am.  First tee time 8am.

Mirage Country Club has sponsored prizes of 2 x $45 vouchers and 2 x $25 vouchers.

Keep reading for a message from Greg our new Pres.


Hi All

We are getting close to starting another year of Vets golf in the Far North. Again, due to a great effort by Secretary Lou, the vast majority of games are sponsored this year. Our normal sponsors have come aboard to help promote Veteran’s golf, a by-product of which is lower fees for all. As can be seen on the 2018 Program the sponsors are Drummond Golf, Golf World (who will be sponsoring the Championships), Health and Fitness Solutions, Cazalys, Brothers, Stackapots Vertical Gardens and Wal Anthony. We are pleased to welcome three new sponsors, Stratford Painting Contractors, HMB Golf Club and Mirage Golf Resort and thank them for their contributions.

Competition Fees for the year, which have already been announced, will be $15.00 although Membership Fees will remain the same at $10.00. The Comp Fees are made up of $14, which the Clubs have agreed to, the whole of which is paid to the Clubs and $1.00 which will go to our Association.

Secretary Lou has detailed in the January Blog, details of the prices and availability of carts at the various courses at which we play. Those needing carts at the courses with limited supplies should make early reservations so as not to be disappointed.

Treasurer John has asked me to let the members know that, if not paid already, Membership Fees are due on the date of the first game on our Program, i.e., 6th February, 2018. In accordance with the Association’s Policy, those players who are not financial Members are ineligible to win any trophy in our normal weekly competitions until they become financial.

I trust that we all have a happy and healthy golfing season and that our deeds and results
in all regards exceed our expectations.

Yours in golf,
