Southern Tasmanian Veteran Golfer's Association

This week in Vets…Monday the 1st of Autumn

Our good mate Lionel Boyle has had to pull the pin from vets due to ill health.  I know that all who know Lionel will miss his presence on the course and would join me in wishing him the absolute best from one and all vets.

Correct money boyswho said you can’t teach an old vet new tricks!  Ray Gibson was smiling last Monday at Royal Hobart.  A sight to behold.   Keep up the good work.

Shotgun Starts – still some confusion

When we play a shotgun start the tee off time will be on the top lines of the booking sheet in Our Golf.  The hole you tee off on the day will be sorted at the course on the morning of play.    The reminder email you get for a shotgun start only has one (1) piece of correct information and that is that you are playing at that particular course on the day stated.

Bit of a plug here.  Indulge me boys – you will notice I have a vested interest in this event.  The three men mentioned were terrific golfers but more importantly great blokes and long-time members of New Norfolk Golf course.  Big prizes on the day.  This course should gold no fears for vets, remember not so long ago we played off the back blocks in a howling gale.
