Veteran’s Programme of Events
We are now well into our 2021 playing year, and entering our “winter” season, which has traditionally been the best golfing weather. Unseasonal rain has meant that some of the events planned for earlier this year have had to be re-scheduled or cancelled – please check our 2021 Programme of Events regularly to keep up with any changes. A very enjoyable Vets Opening Day started our 2021 season on 1st February, with a Mixed American Foursomes competition and Single Stableford for the overflow. Thank you AAA Mining Supplies for sponsoring this event.
The Interclub competition between Vet golfers from Black Springs, Pioneer Valley and Sarina is well under way. As well as being a great fun event on the day, the best eight scores for each club are added as the Club’s Medley Teams Stableford score for that round. Mackay narrowly beat Sarina in 2019 to take home the shield, and the Captain is hoping that we can repeat the win this year. You’ll find the schedule for these events in the men’s and women’s programme.
Wintersun is a major event on the calendar and attracts veteran golfers from all parts of the country. It is returning in 2021 bigger and brighter than ever. It is scheduled to start 2nd August, through to 10th August 2021.
