Passing of Rick Rattray

VALE: Rick Rattray … 26/07/1944 – 25/09/2013Rick Rattray - President

It is with sadness that Murwillumbah Veterans inform you of the passing of Rick Rattray. Rick held the positions of President of Murwillumbah Vets, President of Northern Rivers Veterans Golf Association, Captain of Murwillumbah Golf Club and Delegate to Northern Rivers Golf Association.

Rick was a strong advocate of Veterans Golf, not only in Murwillumbah Golf Club, but in the Northern Rivers. His input into all aspects of Golf at all levels will be sorely missed.

Rick joined Murwillumbah Golf Cub in 1989, and the Vets in 2002. He became President of the Veterans in 2005. In 2008 Rick became President of NRVGA.

Rick has been a member of Murwillumbah Golf Club Board since 2004/05 and has held position of Club Captain for the last six – since 2007

The last position that Rick held, and one that he was very proud of, was Lolly Sheriff. He loved driving around the Course during our Week of Golf making sure that each competitor remained mindful of his or her position in the field. He would entice them to catch up by offering lollies. Particpants enjoyed this novel idea and responded to the sight of the Ranger Buggy driving towards them. This certainly added to Rick’s overriding ideal of creating an atmosphere among participants that Murwillumbah was the Friendly Club.
