THE NSW Veteran Golfers Association Strokeplay Championship in western Sydney was a huge success this year and organisers have just released details for the 2017 edition.
The championship was a sell-out for the first time in its 24 year history in 2016 and with some further enhancements in store is likely to be so again.
Tournament director Les Knox says the 54 hole event will begin on Monday 10th April at Richmond Golf Club, with the second round on Tuesday at Glenmore Heritage Valley Golf Club, and the final round as now traditional on the Wednesday at Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club (pictured above).
“In an attempt to address slow play, especially during the first two days of the tournament, two tee starts will be used at Richmond and Glenmore Park Heritage Valley,” Knox said.
Tee times available during the first two days at Richmond and Glenmore Park Heritage Valley will be: 6.45 am to 8.20 am &11.00 am to 12 noon.
A shotgun start will continue to take place at Stonecutters Ridge with registration and light breakfast commencing at 7.00 am with tee off at 8.00 am.
With a shotgun start on the final day at Stonecutters Ridge the field will again be capped at 144 players.
The three individual rounds will again be recognised as NSW Order of Merit events.
We’ll let you know when entries are open and with a full field again likely, it will be a good idea to get in as soon as possible. Registration should be available early in November.
