Wollongong and Marrickville have been played since our last edition and are reported later. It has been an easier time though with a nice spell of relaxation in between. Beverley Park was on the 7th August and is closely followed Muswellbrook on the 21st and 22nd August. Whilst in Wollongong I had the pleasure of catching up with June Moore (2nd right), who was the country representative on the committee for many years and was the administrator for the Country championships. June caught the train from Wollongong to the office on a weekly basis until an accident unfortunately precluded her further attendance.
Our most prestigious event is our Championships to be held at Asquith on the 22nd September – 1st Division play stroke, Divisions 2,3 and 4 all play stableford. Come along and join us, the more the merrier.
In the last edition the dates for the Country Tournaments for 2024 were listed. Please note that the Tamworth event has had a date change.
- Tamworth 23-23 February
- Mollymook 1-2 July
- Coolangatta 1-2 August
- Bathurst 11-12 November
As mentioned in my last report, a motion will be put forward at the AGM on the 24th of November to increase the membership fee to $7.00 due to increased costs. This is not a decision we have come to lightly.

Over the past six weeks a metropolitan tournament held at Long Reef, and a 2-day country tournament at Cootamundra have kept the grass from growing beneath our feet! These are reported on later in the Newsletter. We have also held a tournament at Wollongong so, this, and Marrickville (June 23rd) will be featured in the August edition. Welcome Emerald Downs Golf Course (Port Macquarie) to the VWGA family.
We have now confirmed the dates for the 2024 Country Tournaments.
1. Tamworth 22-23 February. The dates have changed for this tournament from 7-8 March.
2. Mollymook 1-2 July
3. Coolangatta 1-2 August
4. Bathurst 11-12 November
As you can see, we do try to get around a lot of country NSW. Any club who would like to host a county tournament in either 2025 or 2026 please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Please note that a motion will be put forward at the AGM in November to increase the membership
fee of $7.00. We are also suffering the fate of many with increasing rents, electricity, insurances, and general office expenses. I can assure you that this is not a decision we have come to lightly.

Two more tournaments have been held in late February & March, Port Macquarie, and The Coast. These are reported on later in the newsletter. Pictured are the committee, plus yours truly at the Port Macquarie welcome!
We have three more coming up in April and May. Long Reef was held on April 14th, Cootamundra is on 25/26 May and Wollongong on 29th May. Plenty to choose from with lots of different areas being covered. The event at Muswellbrook on August 21/22 has now closed. But they are starting a waiting list in case of cancellations. Gee you must be quick these days! It’s not too late to enter the Cootamundra tournament as it closes on May 15th. Why not come and join us?
Now for some housekeeping:
When you are sending information into us could you please scan any information on your computer and not your phone. Sometimes it is the formatting, sometimes the size and quite often just impossible to read. When entering a tournament in which you need a partner (2 ball) or more in a 4-person team event, would you please NOT pay singularly. It would be appreciated if you could please pay together in one transaction.
Should you have to withdraw from a tournament before the draw has been completed, you will get all your money refunded to you. If you withdraw after the draw has been completed, and you have a valid reason, you will get your entry money refunded less a $7.00 administration fee. If you withdraw without a valid reason, there will be no refund.
