Coraki Vets visit Bonalbo Golf Club

11 of the Coraki Veterans golfers spent Tuesday at the Bonalbo Golf Club OVER 50 Open Day.

A great little club associated with the bowling club and with less than 10 golfing members the 25/30 visitors swelled the field and maybe helped filled the coffers a little.

Anyway we had a great day with a little golf , plenty of laughs a few beers to go with the excellent lunch provided and a Max joke to finish off the day ( A VETS ritual but it usually starts with one ) .

Well done Bonalbo and I have added .a few photos to the album


On with the Handbrake at Coraki Golf Today

Just got home after playing Vets golf at Coraki and played with someone that at best is a cheat amongst other things . Told me VERY early in the round he needed to have 73 net to save his handicap for the George Gooley Open in a few weeks and needed to get to 12 . The sad part is he was playing that well overall he should have almost had par off the stick reaching pars 5s in 2 etc. Yes , hes a vet , had a 38 or so on the front with an OB , scrambled beautifully and putted out of his shoes , UNTIL THE LAST 3 HOLES AND HAD 11 or 12 putts including 3 putting from 2 feet with an open putter face !

Yep I lost it , called him ever expletive I know , "You f ..... g , ch......g c....t and it was water off a ducks back. He didn't give a stuff . A VERY VERY SAD way to live your life if the only highlight is cheating at golf .

OK , OFF the soapbox . The rest of the vets , or at least the guys I have played with are a great bunch of blokes.
