Big Program for Vets 2019 Golf Season
A full program of Golfing has been organised for 2019 – details of the Men’s and the Women’s Programs can be found by clicking the PROGRAMME tab in the Main Menu.
Opening Day for the Veterans’ 2019 Golf Season – a Mixed American Foursomes sponsored by Palmview Retirement Village – was scheduled for Monday 4th February 2019. However, weather conditions made the course unsuitable for carts, and the event was abandoned. It is hoped to be able to reschedule a Palmview Retirement Village event later in the year.
Some highlights in the calendar include –
Wintersun – 5th to 13th August – rounds at Proserpine, Sarina, Pioneer Valley and Mackay.
Interclub Competitions: Single Stableford – Men & Women: Thursday 2nd May – at Pioneer Valley; Monday 3rd June – at Mackay; Monday 24th June – at Black Springs & Thursday 18th July – at Sarina.
MVGA Championships 2019 – Men and Women – 10th & 17th June.
The Mackay Veterans Summer Golf mixed events were well supported, apart from a couple of days where the weather interfered. In fact a record number of 99 players contested the final event of the series. Consequently the Committee has again scheduled similar mixed events in the calendar for the 2019-20 summer.
