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.

 QVGU State Carnival is at Parkwood on the Gold Coast in May the 18th &19th contact Captain if you need nomination form.

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.
