Two day Gundagai Veterans Tournament
16th & 17th April 2015

Gundagai veterans conducted their third annual tournament, again amazing all participants with their friendliness and food, making all the players from 31 clubs most welcome. 93 players (56 men and 37 women) rolled up on Thursday to be greeted by scones, jam, cream, cakes, lunchtime BBQ and more of the same after golf during the day’s presentation conducted with much humour by Derek Lotz. The course reflected the dry conditions with preferred lies in use. The greens are still recovering from the two floods in 2011 and 2012 which deposited a thick layer of silt. Until just recently it wasn’t realised that the re-use water was not penetrating this layer and so the build up of strong nutrients had a vastly negative effect on the greens. But a couple of subsequent deep corings should ensure the greens get back to normal soon.

Then on Friday the heavens opened and it rained most of the day. Badly needed in the district but such was the steadiness of the rain only 37 brave souls ventured out. That was a shame as the NSWVGA vouchers were based on the 36 holes results.

The ladies committee headed up by evergreen Beryl Monaghan did a great job and were thanked by all. Tournament Director Mick Wells was most helpful in the pro shop with carts, buggies, etc. particularly in juggling the field on the wet Friday.

If you want to feel at home while playing in a vets tournament then I suggest you visit Gundagai next year and get to know Beryl and her team, Mick, and of course MC Derek, who is never lost for a word, even when he had what could only be described as near airswing on the 15th tee on Thursday with the ball actually finishing 2cm behind his tee.
