THE closing date for entries to the 2015 Australian Veteran Golfers Union (AVGU) National Championships in Darwin has been extended and anyone considering signing up for what should be a great event in the Top End should do so.
The AVGU championships will be held in Darwin from August 16 – 21 and organisers have also changed arrangements for lady partners to make the event more attractive to couples.
Tournament Director John Baylis said with current entries not as large as expected the closing date for entries has been extended to 30th June.
Bayliss said the committee has also decided that current registered numbers will allow the ladies event to be held in conjunction with the men at the 18 hole courses at Darwin and Palmerston. This event will no longer be held at the Gardens Park Golf Links.
The AVGU national championships is an annual event that rotates around the states and territories.
It is a handicapped event held in four grades and is open to male golfers aged 55 and over and their partners.
