PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
I promised myself that I wouldn’t mention the consequences of the weather in this newsletter. Unfortunately, that will not be the case. In August we were supposed to have a tournament at Beverley Park in Sydney. This had to be cancelled because of adverse conditions. In September we were to hold a two-day tournament at Bowral and again it has had to be cancelled for the same reasons.

Our next two-day tournament is on at Kew on 11/12 October. Fingers crossed!

As reported in the June newsletter, the Metropolitan Championships were supposed to be played at Eastlakes. Unfortunately, Eastlakes have had to withdraw due to renovations to their club house. North Ryde have stepped into the breach so The Metropolitan Championships can go ahead. This will now be held on Monday September 19th. The cost will be $40.00. First division will play a stroke round and the other
divisions will play stableford. The entry form is on our web site. Please come and join us in the most prestigious event on the VWGA programme.

The country tournaments for 2023 have now been finalised. We hope to see you there! Click here to read the full newsletter.

Beverley Park Tournament Cancelled

Posted on 20th July, 2022

Ladies 
Unfortunately, we need to cancel our Beverley Park tournament on Aug 1. As with most other metropolitan courses they have had a considerable amount of rain and the course is not handling it well. We will be getting the refunds organised as soon as we can. If you haven’t already let us know your bank details, we would appreciate you contacting us with them.
Cheers
Jenni Brown
VWGA Tournament Manager

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

I thought this time I wouldn’t have to lament about the weather. Just last month In Sydney it had been sunny and windy. The sun had some comfort value, but it was the wind that was helping to dry out the courses. Cold and crispy mornings were also the go. Then came the rain and ruined everything again. Back to the floods, course closures but worse of all the people, who again, have had to put up with being evacuated and leaving their houses to the elements. Our thoughts are with you all.

In the last newsletter I mentioned that The Coast had been cancelled. Joan Dunn, the VWGA delegate, has kindly offered the course up again for later this year. So please check your diaries for November 21st and the VWGA website for the entry form.

The Tournament programme is up and running again as ladies are getting back into their stride. We had good numbers for Pambula and Castle Hill. Beverley Park (1st August) was rain affected and was getting back into shape. I hope it can recover in four weeks’ time. Bowral closed quite early with a full contingent of about 110 each day. The Metropolitan Championships were to be be held at Eastlakes this year on
September 29th. Unfortunately, we have just been notified that this will have to be cancelled as the club house will be undergoing major renovations. We will keep you all posted as to which golf course will be asked to take on our most prestigious event.

We welcomed a new committee member at our last meeting. Lana Debnam from Wakehurst. We also have a new volunteer, Jane Sherlock from Beverley Park. It is always pleasing to get new blood onto the committee, and I am sure that both these ladies will be great assets.

The country tournaments for 2023 have now been finalised. They are:
Port Macquarie: Monday 27 & Tuesday 28 February 2023
Cootamundra: Thursday 25 & Friday 26 May 2023
Muswellbrook: Monday 4 & Tuesday 5 September 2023
Albury: Monday 16 & Tuesday 17 October 2023
