Bulletin Board

UNFINANCIAL MEMBERS

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.

FIXTURED EVENTS

ACTRVGA 2021 CHAMPIONSHIPS

The final round of this year’s Championships will be held at Belconnen Magpies Golf Club on Monday, 13 December 2021. The normal playing of golf has been resumed at Magpies. Current COVID and golf requirements for Magpies can be found here.

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

IMPORTANT NOTE: All members are reminded to check their AGU Handicap against the applicable ‘local’ SLOPE RATING sheet of the golf course they are playing at and not rely on the slope rating for the course shown in GOLF Link.

2021 ACTRVGA ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (AGM)

This year’s AGM will be held at Gungahlin Lakes Golf Club on Monday, 20 December 2021 after playing the Gungahlin (4 person Ambrose) – Christmas Cheer Day (Shotgun). Notices and reports for the meeting are promulgated here.

SPECIAL NOTE: Members should notify the Secretary of any matters they would like discussed at the AGM by 13 December 2021.

SCORECARDS

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.

ACT/NSW COVID RESTRICTIONS AND PLAYING GOLF REQUIREMENTS

Members are reminded that COVID restrictions relating to the playing of golf may vary between the ACT and NSW jurisdictions. It is each member’s responsibility to make themselves aware of those restrictions before participating in fixtured events and, when playing in NSW, check in using the SERVICE NSW app.
