Welcome to the website of the ACT Region Veterans Golf Association (ACTRVGA).
The ACTRVGA was formed in the early 1970’s as a not-for-profit body incorporated in the ACT and managed by volunteers from the ACT region. ACTRVGA is the regional subsidiary of the Australian Veterans Golfers Union (AVGU) and a member of the ACT Monaro District Golf Association. To find out more, click here.
Members are advised that they must be a financial member of the ACTRVGA to participate in any fixtured event. Unfinancial members will be disqualified by the Match Committee as ‘ineligible to play’ unless payment is made on the day of play. If you are unsure of your membership status, check with the SECRETARY or CAPTAIN.
The next round of ACTRVGA competition golf is at Federal Golf Club on Monday, 29 November 2021. This fixture includes the Medal of Medals which is a competition within the normal stableford competition. Those members who have won a Monthly Medal this year (any grade) are eligible to play in the Medal of Medals.
The Monthly Medallists are: B. Luckj, P. Gunning, R. Oakman, I. Sausverdis, J. Pritchard, C. Dunstone, E. Tee, A. Nix, I. Miller, W. Shields, P. Sydney, M. Ruddy, P. McCann, F. Catanzariti and P. Cheney.
Players participating in this year’s Medal of Medals are to ensure they write ‘Medal of Medals’ on the top of their score card along with their Golf Link number.
The normal playing of golf has been resumed at Federal. For the latest information, click here. Members are urged to check the local noticeboard for any other notices.
ACTRVGA 2021 CHAMPIONSHIPS
The first round of this year’s Championships will be held at Gold Creek Country Club on Monday, 6 December 2021. The final round at Belconnen Magpies Golf Club on Monday, 13 December 2021.
Members are reminded that the Championships will be played under stableford and stroke conditions.
Stableford scores will only be counted towards the daily competition. Handicaps will vary over the two weeks for stableford as it would if you were playing two separate competitions.
Stroke scores will only be counted towards your eligibility to win the Championships over the two rounds. Handicaps will remain the same for both rounds. You are to ensure you record both stableford and stroke scores on your cards to be eligible for the daily competition and also the Championships.
** Time sheets: Effective as of 12 pm Sunday, 21 November 2021 timesheets will be opened to members approximately three (3) weeks out from a fixtured date.
Members are reminded that incomplete or incorrectly filled out scorecards will result in a ‘disqualification’ being recorded against their Golflink number.
In addition, members must write their Golflink number on their scorecard each time they play in a ACTRVGA competition. No Golflink number recorded on a scorecard is also grounds for ‘disqualification’ by the Match Committee.
Players are to exchange scorecards before play and mark (and sign after having scored) their playing partner’s card.

Members are reminded that COVID restrictions relating to the playing of golf may vary between the ACT and NSW jurisdictions.
