A 9 hole competition is also held at the Beachside course Golf Avenue on Wednesday morning. For reservations phone Mollymook Beachside on 02 4455 1911.
For most competition weeks at Hilltop, there are three vouchers (prize money which is credited to your membership card) given in each of four grades as well as:
- A generous ball/wine rundown;
- Four nearest the pin holes (2 divisions) ball/wine; and
- 1 dozen balls for an eagle or hole in one.
Players are encouraged to remain after golf for the presentation as “stayers” are also eligible to win balls in the wild card draw (6 cards drawn) and the Stayers prize (1 ball jackpots each week until won).
Beachside competitions also have vouchers (prize money credited to membership card) as well as a ball rundown, wild cards and balls for three nearest the pin holes.
In addition to the weekly competitions the Vets also have trips to other clubs on the South Coast as well as visits from other clubs. There is also an annual week of golf visit to Canberra (in March) and Merimbula (in September) each year. These events are both open to men and women golfers.
The Vets are also associated with the Mid South Coast Veteran Golfer’s Association. This association conducts a number of golfing events including interclub competitions, open days and a Championship Event.
During the year there are also several Tournaments held at Hilltop and the Vets assist by providing volunteer spotters and starters. The Vets also assist by providing an annual financial contribution to course improvements and regular voluntary course maintenance.
The annual Club Members’ Programme contains all competition dates and details for both courses as well as the rules that apply to Vets golf competitions.
