What a great success the VETS GUYRA OPEN was! Held over two days we had many visitors from far and wide, with many an accolade given to the Guyra vets and the superb condition of our golf course.
These days happen because of the huge contribution and support of many sponsors. Darrin and Suzanne Towells from New England Autos have been supporting us for many years and 2024 was no exception. Thanks you guys so much, and if you are looking for new wheels to get around and give them a call, they won’t let you down.
The Guyra Bowling Club was once again on board. Betty and David were there both days to greet us and anything we asked for was not a problem. Thank you to our club.  
The Hill family, all avid golfers, contributed to us once again this year and for that we say thank you.
Nutrient Ag Solutions is another long term sponsor and we thank you heaps. The Costa group have been so good for so long. Again we thank them so much.
Steve Bishop from the travelling golf shop as always supplied us with many trophies over the two days and for that we are very grateful.
Our Sydney visitors never come empty and this year was no exception - thank you. If I have missed anyone please let me know so we can give you the acknowledgment you deserve.
