Welcome

to the Downs and District Veteran Golf Association

Our year commences in January and concludes with a break-up function in December. We generally play on Mondays, except when main State and Australian holidays fall on that date. Once joining, you will be given a program of when and where we are playing during the year.

We currently play at 18 different courses in the Toowoomba and surrounding areas. There are also approx. 13 mixed games played and these are generally on a Monday also.

Results

 Ladies and Gentlemen as this Coronavirus is spreading and we have a members who are in the high risk of getting the virus. 

As of today all DDVGA Veteran Golf is suspended until the 31st of June 2020 or until we are cleared to restart. 

Steve , Eric and myself have made this decision as we have a duty of care to our members and to  make sure we follow all Government recommendations.   

We will monitor and look at it again at the end of May if things change.  

Golf Australia’s website has information on the status of golf in all states.  Some Clubs are playing under strict Rules  

Warwick Golf Club hosted 40 players on 23rd March for a Single Stableford.

Winner Leith Baxter 38 pts, Runner-up Noel Kettle 37 pts.

Ball run down to 30 pts.

Pins: Div. 1 Bruce Volp, Div. 2 Not Won, Div. 3 Noel Kettle, All In Alan Rennick. 

Coming Events:  TBA 

 

Game Changes:

Game at Cabarlah on the 11th May has been cancelled and now at Lowood G C on the 11th May shotgun 9am.  TBA due to Convid 19

Championships in August, the 24th Aug will now be at City G C, the 31st will now be at Toowoomba G C.

 QVGU State Championship is at Parkwood Cancelled

QVGU State Carnival City G C Toowoomba 12th & 13th Oct TBA 

AVGU National Championships are at Yarrawonga Nov 30 to Dec 4th.

The new Handicapping system from Golf Australia went live on the 1st Feb, the new system will have a big effect on your daily handicaps, Golflink has it set up in their system so when you come to golf we will have your handicap for that course there for you. 

 

 All members are reminded that they are to be booked in to the host Club no later than 30 minutes prior to start times as if you are late you will not be in competition.

The reason is we need to have all monies in and players sheet adjusted by 8.45 am to then send players to tees.This is a new rule the Committee has  Implemented.
