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. To find out more, click here.

Bulletin Board

Members are advised that at the annual general meeting due in September all elected ACTRVGA executive and committee positions will be declared vacant. 

Have you ever thought of nominating for an executive or committee member position of the ACTRVGA? If not, why not?

Under the ACTRVGA rules (constitution) the positions of President, Secretary, Treasurer and Captain from the executive, and up to a further eight committee members can be elected.

This email serves to invite you to consider which role you could play within our association and nominate for it accordingly. Committee members’ duties typically cover match committee functions on game days; overarching governance; membership management; ACTRVGA website administration; financial management; Onegolf/Miclub administration; fixture management and a host of other interesting activities associated with the ACTRVGA.

Committee meetings are held on a quarterly basis. The period of tenure is normally two years.

Each of you would be aware that voluntary organisations like ours rely on the dedicated efforts of individuals (just like you) to keep the organisations going. Time and again people who serve on committee re-nominate because no one else puts their hand up to assist. This has resulted in an ‘aged’ committee that is looking for younger members to take on key roles. As a few executive/committee members have advised their intention to ‘retire’ there is a real opportunity for a ‘refreshed committee’ (and some continuity to ensure mentoring is provided).

Here’s your opportunity to help shape the direction the ACTRVGA takes into 2025 and beyond, as well as contribute to the smooth running of our competitions on a week-to-week basis. If you’re interested in becoming a part the ACTRVGA, the nomination form can be found here:  https://www.actvetgolf.org/about-us/join-us/committee-nomination-form/

If you have any questions, current executive members would be happy to elaborate on the various roles

Why not give it a go?

Want to get that little bit extra out of your golf game? Why not start by being physically and mentally prepared better for your round. Here’s a few points to remember:

  1. Charge your mobile phone and buggy battery (if applicable) the night before you play
  2. On the day of play, arrive at least 30 to 40 minutes before your round tees off to unload and prepare your clubs and buggy
  3. Check you have sufficient drinks to keep yourself hydrated during the round (the course may not have bubblers out there)
  4. Put on some sun-screen and wear a hat/cap
  5. Pay your green fees and then read any Local Rules posted on the club noticeboard
  6. Stretch/Flex yourself a bit, then have a practice swing (being mindful of anyone near you) and finally,
  7. Have a practice putt or two.

Now you’re ready to enjoy your game. Play well!

You must be a financial member of the ACTRVGA (or affiliated VGA) 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 ACTRVGA membership status, check with the SECRETARY or CAPTAIN.
