Members of the Lower Murray & Hills Veterans’ Golf Association teed off for their first Living Choice- sponsored tournament of 2022 at the picturesque Aston Gills Golf Course in Mount Barker on 17th January. The first event of the year coincides with the AGM, which saw outgoing President Brian Nankivell handing over the reins to Colin Stevens.
Living Choice sales consultant, David Brookman, attended the prizegiving and presented Brian with a bottle of wine for his support and advocacy over the years. Coincidentally, David also took home a bottle of wine, after purchasing a ticket in the raffle!
In his President’s Report, Brian – who has been President for the past 8 years - thanked Living Choice for their sponsorship. “Besides their cash injection which has funded our monthly winner prize, Living Choice has been very generous with balls and other items to use as prizes and gifts. Their staff have attended matches to address the members, and I am delighted to announce that they have agreed to continue the sponsorship in 2022.”
Brian will continue to be involved in Vets’ golf through his positions as State President and Tour Director.
