Vets News October 2022

Posted on 10th October, 2022


Jacky has literally just returned from a trip to Europe and has given me carte blanche to cover in her absence. So, I’ve decided not to mention the appalling on-again off-again weather and concentrate on happy times. This is the celebration issue!

HOLE-IN-ONE WINNERS: In the last newsletter I queried whether any of our wonderful golfers had achieved Peta Merchant’s feat of two holes-in-one on the same hole using the same club. Shirley Toohill, the delegate at Tathra Beach, responded quickly that one of her ladies has achieved three holes-in-one over the past few years, two of them at the same hole with the same club. The amazing and incredibly happy lady is Karen Enright who reproduced the shot on 13/2/18 with a 5 wood on the 9th hole and on 26/12/20. I’m so jealous! Any advances on Karen’s achievements?

I promised myself that I wouldn’t mention the consequences of the weather in this newsletter. Unfortunately, that will not be the case. In August we were supposed to have a tournament at Beverley Park in Sydney. This had to be cancelled because of adverse conditions. In September we were to hold a two-day tournament at Bowral and again it has had to be cancelled for the same reasons.

Our next two-day tournament is on at Kew on 11/12 October. Fingers crossed!

As reported in the June newsletter, the Metropolitan Championships were supposed to be played at Eastlakes. Unfortunately, Eastlakes have had to withdraw due to renovations to their club house. North Ryde have stepped into the breach so The Metropolitan Championships can go ahead. This will now be held on Monday September 19th. The cost will be $40.00. First division will play a stroke round and the other
divisions will play stableford. The entry form is on our web site. Please come and join us in the most prestigious event on the VWGA programme.

The country tournaments for 2023 have now been finalised. We hope to see you there! Click here to read the full newsletter.
