MOTORISED BUGGIES: The organisers will arrange the hire of all motorised buggies where requested. Please note, however, that at some courses, the availability of buggies is limited, and early nomination with your buggy request is suggested. All available carts will be controlled by the local Veterans Club through your nomination, so please do not try to book carts directly with the Clubs.
TEE TIMES: Whilst the organisers will make every effort to allocate a special tee time requested for medical reasons, we cannot guarantee that your request can be met. At both Proserpine and Mackay, players will be drawn in the morning field for one round and in the afternoon field for the other round, unless otherwise decided by the Tournament Committee.
