JAMBEROO Golf Club has a vibrant veteran golf scene for men and women.
Affiliated veteran golfing visitors are welcome at all our regular and special events.
Financial members of the JGC are entitled to join the Jamberoo Veterans Golf Association (the age limits are 55 for men and 50 for ladies).
There is an annual membership of just $5.00 per annum with the majority of this money being paid to the NSW Veteran Golf Association for affiliation fees.
At Jamberoo the men’s veteran competitions (lady competitors are also welcome) are held on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month, while the Ladies competition is held on the 1st Thursday of the month.
In addition to these competitions,
Trevor Bell Memorial Shield
Jamberoo also has a men’s representative team that competes annually for the inter-club Trevor Bell Memorial Shield.
Teams of eight players from each club in the Illawarra district play in this stableford competition with one round conducted at each of the clubs, with the best six scores counted towards the Shield.
The nomination form for entrants is usually posted on the Vets notice board about two to three weeks beforehand and everyone is welcome to participate. Lunch is normally provided by the host club and a sit down dinner is provided at the end of the season which includes the presentation.
Jamberoo won the shield in 2014.
Jamberoo Veterans Club Championship
The Jamberoo Veterans Club Championship is held on the 1st Monday in May and to qualify players must have competed in at least three veterans competitions in the previous 12 months.
There is also an annual event for the Illawarra Medal held at Shoalhaven Heads (in 2017 to be held on the 2nd Monday in June). Each club is entitled to have three men and three lady competitors and the winner not only receives the medal, but a financial reward as well as a shirt to recognise their achievement.
Veterans Open Day
On Thursday 4th May 2017 there will be a Ladies and Mens Veterans Open Day. It will be a stableford event and there will be a luncheon provided at the conclusion for a nominal cost of $5.00. Anyone in the past who has experienced one of these lunches can testify to how good they are.
