Vale Ron Merritt
It is with great sadness that we have to inform of the passing of Ron last Wednesday 27 May.
Ron was a long standing member of the Vets and he will be sadly missed.
On behalf of the ACT veteran golfers we would like pass on our best wishes to Sue and Ron's family.
Ron did not want a funeral, but a celebration of a life well lived.
This will take place later in the year when safe for all of his cherished friends and family to participate.
The Vets program will be restarting on Tuesday 9 June at Fairbairn, with the following Monday 15 June at Gungahlin.
The start sheets for both of these events are up and bookings are being made. The committee is still persuing other clubs for a committment to play 4 in a group and off the 1st and 10th tees. There is one club that we cannot get onto for a few months so changes to the program will be made where necessary and notifications will appear on this home page and also on the fixtures page.
We have agreed arrangements with clubs for the rest of June and will be contacting the other clubs in the program to confirm their committments for July through to December.
We remind members that many of the restrictions and guidelines such as social distancing etc remain in force and that each club has firm local rules which must be followed and these are listed on the start sheet on the fixtures page.
Members are free to make their own decision about attending, however the we remind you that you should consider your own personal risk factors and the safety of others in that choice.
Remember that arrangements can change at short notice so please monitor the website or updates.
Australian Veteran Golfers Union Championship 2020
Following an online meeting between AVGU Executive members and the 2020
organisers on 12 May it was unanimously decided to postpone the
Championships scheduled for Yarrawonga in November 2020 for 12 months.
The Yarrawonga organisers agreed that they would host the 2021 Championships
at the same time of the year. They also advised that they would contact all
registrants on their booking system to organise options for November this
year (eg refunds, prepayment for 2021 or entry to alternative competitions
to be held at Yarrawonga this November).
As a consequence, upcoming Championships will be put back 12 months; ie.
Western Australia to 2022, ACT in 2023 etc.
Please Click HERE for information and the entry form for the 2020 Championships
to be held at the Black Bull course, Yarrawonga Murray Course and Yarrawonga Lakes course
Ladies please note:
When we have nine or more ladies play in a game we shall have a separate ladies tournament for that day
