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.

With the changes to lunches at Country Clubs and members do not want what is offered and decide to bring their own lunches, members must not take their own lunches into any club house as with COVID it would be risky to do so.

As all Clubs would not be happy if this is happening so please do not bring your lunch into Club Houses.

We lost another member just recently Max Strong he was a member of Crows Nest for a number of years and later at Cabarlah, he joined the vets in 1997, we only found out on Monday

All games will be Timesheet starts until we can go back to normal 

 

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.
