 Recent improvements include installation of concrete pathways, flower beds  on  golf tee areas, coloured distance markers, and drainage on  the well maintained fairways and greens.

Veteran lady and men golfers who live along the NSW south coast enjoy a variety of activities not only on their own home course but also at other venues  throughout the region.

Most regional members play a weekly competition game at their own home course.

Tuross Head Country Club players, for instance, enjoy a nine hole game each Wednesday morning, take part in regular fun based gala days, which include a luncheon bbq, and wind up their year with a very festive Christmas party. Enduring friendships are often the result of this combination of sporting and social activities within the club.

However an even wider field opens with the ability to  travel and play at other towns on very attractive courses.

The Far South Coast Veteran Golfers Association holds a monthly 18 hole stableford competition at a selected venue each month.

The towns participating are Bega, Moruya, Tathra, Pambula/Merimbula, Eden, Tuross Head, Bermagui, Narooma and Tura Beach with the next event to be at Eden on Friday May 25th followed by Tuross Head on Friday June 29th. There is a very small fee to become a member of the FSCVGA.

Herb Muriwai is our district representative. If you would like to compete check with him regarding nomination.

Another annual very popular event is one organised by the Lower South Coast Veteran Golfers Association under the auspices of the NSWVGA.

This attracts participants from all around the state.

Open to both ladies and men, who compete in different divisions, it commences on Sunday August 5th with the opening competition a nine hole 2BBB medley stableford round at Tuross Head Country Club.

This is followed by a 4 person medley on Monday 6th August and a stableford round on Tuesday August 7th, both at Moruya.

On Thursday August 9th players move to Catalina Country Club at Batemans Bay for a stableford event followed by a four person Irish four ball medley on Friday August 10th.

In conjunction golfers will be competing for the NSWVGA trophy accessed from the results of the Tuesday and Thursday rounds.

Veteran golfers can compete in all five games or select those of interest.

Entry forms are available at competing clubs, or contact can be made through our own club delegate or Secretary Co-ordinator Peter Edwards. Email: [email protected]

Entries close 30th June or when fully subscribed.

Tuross Head Country Club Veteran Golf Christmas Party

By | 2017-12-17T12:18:46+00:00 December 16th, 2017|Categories: Golf Events - Vets, Uncategorized|


 The Tuross Head Veteran golfers celebrated on Wednesday December 13th 2017 when 125 golfers and guests enjoyed a Christmas lunch and end of year party at the Tuross Head Country Club’s 2 Waters Bistro.

 Mr. Meany fines session money collected througout the year for minor wayward actions and comments was put to good use when wine and drinks flowed freely and everyone enjoyed an excellent  meal.

 The event was  organised by the veteran club committee working under president Ian Manton and his wife Annette and club captain Ian Miller and his wife Janette. Great table settings, good vibes and the right atmosphere all led to a fun afternoon.

 Best dressed male and female golfers and best decorated carts and golf buggy awards were presented, and a raffle of 30 hampers and other prizes raised $1000.

 Entertainment was provided by the Tuross Head Country Club Singers, Ian and Annette Manton, the Tuross Head Golfettes, Steve Johnston and Graham Heuston and Pat and Henry Anderson.

 

 Entertainment was all sourced from  club members and was introduced by Master of Ceremonies Michael Kermode.

 Michael Birks, President of the Tuross Head Country Club, fittingly thanked everyone and remarked how fortunate we were  that organisations such as the veteran golf group existed and that we live in a township such as Tuross Head.

 

Entertainment and Highlights of the Day

    The Tuross Head Country Club Singers led by maestro Steve Johnston, meet every Monday at 7.00 pm at the club for  practice sessions.  They perform at many local community care facilities and sing at Moruya, Tomakin and Tuross Head Christmas Carols. They also feature at the Anzac Day Dawn  Service at Memorial Gardens.  New members are very welcome.

It’s Veteran Golfers Party Time

Wednesday December 13th

Now is the time to start planning for the veteran golfers event of the year. Our Christmas Party.

It is the time to let our hair down (we note some male members have made an early start) and be wined and dined and entertained by singers and dancers and raconteurs extraordinary.

If you have hidden talents make yourself known to the committee and you can perhaps achieve one of the goals of your life and perform live on the stage.Who knows doors may open?

4 Person Ambrose

A 4 person 9 hole Ambrose competition will be held before we can commence the festivities so there is a need to gather your group together and work out an attack plan, playing within the rules of golf, as much as possible.

 The usual 7.45 am for 8.30 am shotgun start.
