In the early 80s when the course was only 9 holes a group of veterans formed a social club, which over the years has evolved into the Meadowbrook Veterans. The club’s constitution (name change) was amended in February 2018 at a Special Meeting following a name change of the golf course from Logan City to Meadowbrook.
Meadowbrook Vets is affiliated with the Albert and Logan District Veteran Golfers Association Inc. which is made up of members from Bay Islands, Carbrook, Meadowbrook, Mt Warren Park, Redland Bay, Riverlakes, and Windaroo Lakes golf clubs.
Competitions for Veterans
We hold a weekly competition every Thursday with tee times from 5:30am to 10am in summer and in winter from sunrise. Weekly competition fees are $10. Depending on field size, there are normally 3 men’s grades and 2 women’s divisions.
Our membership stands at over 120 with weekly fields of around 90 players. Competitions are varied with the first game each month being the Monthly Medal.
Interclub Competitions commence in April each year. This is an opportunity for you to represent the club, as well as trying the other courses in the Albert & Logan District at low Veterans competition fees. In conjunction, you will also be playing in the District team and individual Championships.
Visiting veterans are welcome to come and play subject to availability of playing times. Cost is a reduced green fee plus the competition fee. Visiting veterans can win all prizes except honour board events.
Invited non-veterans may be permitted to play a round of golf with veteran members on any competition day provided green fees are paid at the Pro Shop. Non-veterans will not be required to pay competition fees and are not eligible to win any golf prizes.
Membership shall be open to all golfing life members and financial members of the Meadowbrook Golf Club who hold the equivalent of 7 Day, Midweek or Pensioner membership and have attained the age of 50 years for females and 55 years for males.
Initial membership fee is $20.00 and thereafter the renewal fee is $20.00 per annum due 1 July.
If you would like to join us for a game you can be absolutely assured that you will experience wonderful camaraderie with our members.
You might like to ‘try before you buy’ and that is OK as well. Book a game or two with us on any Thursday by contacting the Pro-shop. Please note that until you become a member you will not be charged the competition fee and you are not eligible to receive a trophy/prize.
