Veteran Golfers include ladies who have reached the age of fifty years (try getting their age out of them) and men who have reached the age of fifty-five years young. The Burrum Vets are one of the clubs in the greater Wide Bay Veteran’s Golf Association. We have an open day each year and many of us attend other clubs events throughout the year.
