Southern Vets notch up great scores at October competition

Another great golf day was enjoyed by the Southern Group Vets at McCracken Golf Club on Monday 10th October. Living Choice is a sponsor of the Southern Group Vets, which meets at a different club each month for a fun day of golf and camaraderie.

At the October game, players from Mount Compass, Edwardstown, South Lakes, Victor Harbor, McLaren Vale, Marion ark and Wirrina Cove were amongst the winners.
