The Goolgowi Ex-Servicemen's Club was the venue for celebrating the 50th year since the club was reformed.
Golf Club president Geoff Elliot welcomed all and handed the formalities for the night to MC and life member Allan King. Allan called all present to stand and observe a minute silence for all past members who had passed on.
He also spoke of former Western Riverina delegates Ian Sneddon (Jerilderie) and John Lugstin (Hay) as great supporters of the Goolgowi Golf Club.
Allan then gave a good all round report on the history of the club and how it was John Watkins, Eddie Douglass and Alec Robertson who instigated the reforming in 1969.
Allan spoke of the good times during 1970/80s when the golf also supported their own tennis and darts team in the local competition.
Other speakers were Jenny Fisher from Griffith who told a few hilarious old time stories, Jenny said she could go back more than 50 years.
Club president Geoff then called on Colleen Westrup, Robyn Brown, Jill Connelly, Wally McDermott and Ray Christoff to cut the cake.
