Mudgee Veterans Golf Week


Mudgee golf club’s biggest week of golf – The Veterans Week of Golf was held from the 8th to the 12th September 2014 in beautiful sunshine all week and only a little wind on Tuesday to test the golfers skill. Our course seemed to be the winner this year with scores being down on other years, but we are all getting a little older.

A total of 219 players from 66 clubs from all over NSW took part in the event which is considered to one of the biggest and best tournaments on the veterans golf circuit. With a full field every day many entries, once again, had to be sent back to disappointed golfers.

Monday commenced with all players arriving to a crisp but sunny day. Scores weren’t so good on the first day, golfers finding our course quite difficult, the scores did improve as the players became more familiar to the course as the week progressed.  Hopefully all the golfers enjoyed their week of golf and the very enjoyable dinner night with 242 attending in our clubhouse with great food wine and music on the night.

One highlight of many for the week was an eagle scored on our long Par 5 13th by Kerry Bullen from Murwillumbah.

Thanks again to Les Mann for attending our tournament as our NSW Veterans representative and for presenting the sought after NSW Veterans prizes.

NSW Veterans Trophy winners were Men’s 1st Phillip Weir from Kiama with 35 points on a count back from James Cramp, Cabramatta also 35 point and Denis Moss, Camden Lakeside coming in 3rd also with 35 points on a count back.

Ladies NSW Veterans trophy was won by Christine Johnson from Charlestown with 39 points from Lyn Pettit Port Kembla and Judy Hatton Cronulla 3rd on 35 points.

C Grade score with 101 points was Bill Weston Hawks Nest from Ian Betenson Mona Vale with 100 points and very close behind third was Gus Buderus from Forster on 98 points.

The ladies A Grade Winner for the 54 holes was Annie Scott, Hawks Nest with 97 points 2nd Diann Simpson Liverpool on 96 points and Gail Morrin Charlestown on 94 points on a countback.

Christine Johnson from Charlestown won B Grade with 102 points on a countback from Cronulla’s Judy Hatton also on 102 points and Gwenda Dwyer from Kogarah on 99 points coming in third.

Lyn Pettit Port Kembla won C Grade with a score of 112 points, second year in a row this also won Lyn the overall winner for the Col Mathews Shield,  also for the second year in a row, Carol Marriott, Jamberoo came in second with a score of 97 points from Dawn Darley, Nowra with 91 points third.

Friday’s 4BBB results were quite outstanding, Des and Lyn Brownlee were first with a great score of 49 points from Les Mann and Lois Hayes Camden with a score of 45 points and third place was Peter Cripps and David Williams Forbes with 44 points on a countback.

The 4BBB on Friday was the culmination of a very busy, happy and enjoyable week for all concerned even for the wonderful band of workers who made it the great tournament that it was.

Hopefully we will see you all back in Mudgee on 7th to 11th September 2015
