Capricorn Carnival Update – 3 July 2020

Due to the uncertainty around the return to normal travel arrangements, the Tropic of Capricorn Veteran Golfers Carnival for 2020 was cancelled. However, now that travel restrictions have been relaxed, some of the partner Clubs in the carnival have decided to hold their individual Veterans’ Opens around the same time.

The cancelled carnival was due to be played from 17 to 25 August, 2020 in Rockhampton, Yeppoon and Emu Park. Yeppoon Veterans have advised that they are holding the Yeppoon Veterans Golf Open on Thursday 20th August 2020, and the Rockhampton Veterans are holding their Veterans Open on Monday 17th August. Gracemere, Emu Park and Capricornia (North Rockhampton) are holding their Opens later in the year.

While the 2020 Tropic of Capricorn Carnival is another victim of the pandemic, the 2021 Carnival will be well worth waiting for. Playing golf in beautiful sub-tropical weather while enjoying the social interaction is something that we all enjoy and look forward to. The proposed start date for 2021 carnival is Monday 16th August. Details later in 2020.
