Out of Bounds - Local Rule
The ACT Veteran Golfers Association has decided that for all ACT Veterans competitions we would adopt the following out of bounds option.
However, Members will still be able to play a provisional ball from the tee if preferred.
Balls Lost or Out of Bounds:
Alternative to Stroke and Distance: A new Local Rule was adopted in January 2019, permitting committees to allow golfers the option to drop the ball in the vicinity of where the ball is lost or out of bounds (including the nearest fairway area), under a two-stroke penalty.
For more information on out of bounds rules , see golf rule 18 from R&A Rules of Golf, effective January 2019.
RETURNING TO NORMAL
The Vets program is underway again.
The start sheets for these events are up and bookings can be made.
We will be contacting the other clubs in the program to confirm their committment for July through to December.
We remind members that many of the restrictions and guidelines such as social distancing etc remain in force and that each club has firm local rules which must be followed and these are listed on the start sheet on the fixtures page. With clubs reopening it is more than likely that you will need to provide your contact details and also be temperature tested before being able to enter.
Members are free to make their own decision about attending, however the we remind you that you should consider your own personal risk factors and the safety of others in that choice.
Remember that arrangements can change at short notice so please monitor the website for updates.
Australian Veteran Golf Union Championships 2020
Following an online meeting between AVGU Executive members and the 2020 organisers on 12 May it was unanimously decided to postpone the Championships scheduled for Yarrawonga in November 2020 for 12 months.
The Yarrawonga organisers agreed that they would host the 2021 Championships at the same time of the year. They also advised that they would contact all registrants on their booking system to organise options for November this
year (eg refunds, prepayment for 2021 or entry to alternative competitions to be held at Yarrawonga this November).
As a consequence, upcoming Championships will be put back 12 months; ie. Western Australia to 2022, ACT in 2023 etc.

to be held at the Black Bull course, Yarrawonga Murray Course and Yarrawonga Lakes course
