Following correspondence from NSW Health and Golf NSW that community sport be restricted to local areas for a 6-week period commencing Wed 19th August, the organising committee determined, regrettably, that the 2020 Sapphire City WOG be cancelled.

The committee felt it was too risky to bring veteran golfers, who are in the vulnerable age group, to our area as it has a responsibility to keep everybody safe.

This decision was not made lightly, as this was to be the last Sept/Oct WOG to be hosted by Inverell.  Inverell will be hosting the NE WOG on a permanent basis in April each year from 2021.
