Check out these great clips featuring Australia’s ex-servicemen playing golf.

Last week we featured a superb old mini-documentary of golf in Australia in the late 1960’s, well here is another short video from around 35 years earlier.

British Pathé released a whole bunch of great, old movies last year and in among them were these two wonderful clips from the Australian Ex-servicemen’s Golf Championship played in 1933.

The clips show war veterans playing golf somewhere in Victoria – anyone know where? And how’s the parade as the golfers walk to the course, some bloke is pushing someone in a wheelbarrow?!

And in the video below, the golfer falling over as his putt rolls in recalls this now infamous moment most of you will have seen before. It all looks as though it was played in wonderful spirit.
