It's the veterans week to shine

VETERAN golfers from near and far will converge on Grafton from tomorrow for the Grafton Veteran Golfers’ Winter Week of Golf.

The tournament will run all week, concluding on Friday.

With its mild and beautiful winters, Grafton is an ideal venue, and the course is usually in peak condition at this time of year.

Tournament director John Tibbs has expressed delight at the 180 plus players who have already nominated this time, with the majority being visitors travelling from many parts of New South Wales as well as Queensland.

Bargara in the north and Nowra in the south, with very strong contingents from Keperra and Camden Haven and Gympie coming to enjoy the Grafton hospitality they have grown to love.

The Grafton Veterans committee, led by president Trevor Gleeson, will be hard at work making sure the event will be the success it normally enjoys.
