 VWGA Vet News for 2019 from Vets’ Delegate Liz Parks
Memberships fees are now due for 2019 which will enable you to play in the Mabel Mackenzie Brooch & Country Championships. These events are played in conjunction with our monthly stroke events, at no extra cost to you. Results from all participating NSW Clubs go through to VWGA and results published on their website http://www.vwgansw.org.au. Club winners are presented on our Christmas Presentation day.  

Being a member of the VWGA will also enable you to play in any of the Vets Weeks of Golf around NSW & interstate.  The full tournament program is on the website http://www.nswvga.com.au. It’s a great way to play other golf courses at very reasonable prices and meet so many lovely people. There’s not many spare weeks where there isn’t a Vets Week of golf on!

 $5 renewal fees & $12 new membership fees – please pay Liz.

If you would like to have a magnetic ‘Name Badge’ with your Club name underneath, I can also order these for you at a cost of $18 – (ordered from VWGA)

Last year we had 37 financial vets. Thanks for your continued support!

Slow Play
Claudette spoke about the importance of keeping up with the group in front, so that play moves at a reasonable pace, is enjoyable for all, and allows presentation to be completed before too many players go home. If you’re group is falling behind, Claudette suggested that 2 players should putt out, and move to the next tee while the other 2 finish putting. If this doesn’t improve the situation, then please consider calling through the group behind.

Rules discussion
If you have any questions about the new rules, please talk to Claudette. She will find the answer, and announce it to everyone at presentation, to help us all.
This weekOut of Boundsthe rules relating to this have NOT changed.  The option of a new local rule about taking a 2 shot penalty, near where the OOB ball lies, is still under discussion by our Golf Management Committee. If they decide it’s a useful option for our course, it will be advertised and printed as a local rule on the scorecard.
