Cancellation of Griffith Vets Week of Golf

Posted on: 10 August

Hi All,

The Committee determined, regrettably, that the 2020 tournament will be cancelled.

The decision was not made lightly as it is one of the most successful and well attended tournaments on the WOG calendar. The Committee had to take into account the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the risks associated with conducting a major tournament that attracts a lot of older golfers from a wide area. We all know what is currently happening in Victoria and to a lesser extent in other States, with restrictions still evolving to keep us all safe. The Committee felt it was too risky to conduct an event likely to bring a lot of golfers from outside our area into our community. Veteran golfers are in an age group regarded as vulnerable and the Committee has a responsibility to keep us all safe.

The 2020 Week of Golf tournament is my finale as Tournament Director. I would like to thank everyone that has supported this tournament since its inception and particularly those that have become my friends, both in the rough and outside the fence. You never know the bear may come out of hibernation. Please support our WOG tournament in 2021 and in the years ahead.

PS I nearly forgot to mention. All entry fees and associated cost with the exception of NSWVGA annual fees $5 ( for those that joined) will be refunded in full by cheque.

Keep well and I will see you on the 25th October 2021.

Gerry Cox
Tournament Director
