VVGA State Championship Update 11th Sep

Lonsdale Links

The V.V.G.A Council has had discussions today 10th/09/2021 with Michael Munro, Jubilee Golf Club, regarding the viability of the V.V.G.A’s State Championships to be played on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th October 2021.

Michael is very keen for the event to go ahead and the V.V.G.A Council agrees with him.

It is hoped by all that the Victorian State Government will allow Melbourne some freedoms from lock down, and Melbourne District Members could attend.

The format for the event will change slightly to accommodate Covid 19 regulations. On the Monday the 4th, play will commence at 11.00am as scheduled but there will be tee times rather than a shotgun start. A draw will be arranged and players will be advised of their tee off time on Saturday 2nd of October via email and on the V.V.G.A website vvga.org.au. A bag lunch will be provided before tee off. There will be no dinner on the Monday evening and players will need to make their own arrangements. Tee off times will commence on Tuesday at 9.00am following the same draw as for Monday but there will be no sit-down lunch or prize giving after the game. Hopefully there will be a BBQ or similar and all players are asked to leave the golf club after having a drink and something to eat.

Entries will be received up until Friday 1st October, but try and get your entries in sooner if possible.

The V.V.G.A’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 4th commencing at 9.00am.
