Corowa Veterans Golf 

A total of 23 hardy players defied the heatwave and played a challenging Corowa Golf Course on Monday, January 14. 

This number was down from the original 35 players who registered to play.

The course has been suffering from the heat with lots of loose bark off the fairways resulting in several lost balls, an incentive to hit straight.

Men’s A Grade winner was Joe Lackner on countback from a Queensland visitor John Wooters with 38 stableford points.

Men’s B Grade winner was Keith Allsopp with 40 points. Runner on countback was Laurence Moylan on 38. Laurence chipped in from just of the green on the long par three 16th for an excellent birdie. Well done Laurence.

Ladies winner was Di Tyrell-Miller with 31 points. Runner up was Roslyn Kerr on countback with 26 points.

Nearest the pin winners were David Twiss and Di Tyrell – Miller on the 18th and Laurence Moylan on the 27th.

Winners and runners up received vouchers from our valued business sponsor Corowa Nursery and Garden Centre.

All players not winning a voucher received a gold ball.

Lucky card winners were Lindsay Steer $35 Golf Club Voucher, Robyn Kerr and Laurie Thatcher a bottle of wine each.

Next Veterans competition day will be at Corowa Golf Club on Monday, February 18 at 8am for 8.30am start. 

This will be round one of the Murray River Veterans Challenge against Thurgoona Golf Club so a strong turnout is hoped to give Thurgoona a run for its money.
