THE BIGGEST single day for men’s and lady amateur veteran golfers on the Coffs Coast is being held on Monday at C.ex Urunga Golf Course.

Prizes over $1200 in value make it probably the biggest day of its kind for veterans in Australia. The event is open to all amateur golfers who hold an AGU handicap aged 55+ and LGU members aged 50+. The event is a single stableford in three grades, sponsored by the C.ex group, with prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in each grade plus nearest the pin vouchers. As an added incentive, all golfers who score 30 stableford points or more will receive a ball on handing in their card.

Entry fee is $20 and a free sausage sandwich is available to all players between 10.30am and 1pm.

The Urunga course runs alongside the beautiful Kalang River and is generally regarded as easy walking although many veterans enjoy a cart and you can bring your own or hire one. Full details of the day along with entry forms should be pinned on the noticeboard of all Mid North Coast clubs.

Mid North Coast Vets members should book online through the booking website as usual and all others can use the form available at their clubs but be quick because there are a limited number of places available. If you can’t find an entry form at your club get in touch with C.ex Urunga Golf Club.

The course is in great condition and the new 9/18th par three is a delight to play.
