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.
