2011 Winter Pennant Information

 Thursday, June 16, 2011

2011 GVDGA Winter Pennant Information.

The GVDGA Executive have voted unaminously to allow the introduction of ride-on and standard golf Carts, for the HANDICAP Sections only, ie Division 4, 5 & 6. 

Permission must be gained from the Club Captain of the course pennant is to played on to bring your cart or ride-on buggy. This is to allow banning if the course is not in a suitable condition for pennant (i.e. too wet). The GVDGA suggest that you contact the venue on the Saturday prior to the game to seek permission from the Captain to use your motorised transport.

The condition has been changed to allow more members who need the assistance of motorised transport to play pennant golf, and therefore boost the number of players available for each club.

Divisions 1, 2, & 3 will remain the same, only the Captain of the GVDGA can give approval for the use of motorised buggies or carts in competition.

Team and Result Sheets are now on the pennant webpage, along with a copy of the conditions of competition and the currenrt draw.

Pennat Draw to be updated and Pennant Contact to be named for each club

 Thursday, May 26, 2011

Please note that there will be a revised Division 2 pennant draw coming out within the next week as Rich River have been able to field a second team which is fantastic.  I am currently working with the clubs involved to see when courses are available to complete as fair a draw as possible.

At an informal pennant meeting last night it was decided that a single pennant representative from each club is sought so that if a cancellation needs to be made due to a course being unplayable this person will be contacted to then let their team captain of that Division know of the cancellation.  Our preferred option is to make this call by 12 noon on the Saturday prior to the upcoming match, however if heavy overnight rain falls on the Saturday night it will be a "suck it and see" approach at the relevant courses hosting that day and they will attempt to make a call on both playability of the course and whether carts can be used or not and alert the club contact ASAP so as to establish if the matches for that round go ahead.

A note will be forwarded to all clubs asking for the nomination of a club contact, however in the meantime if your club wants to forward this name to me by email that would be great.  It would be great to have both the phone contact and email address of the representative for your clubs.  This can be sent to me at either gdevine@spcardmona.com.au or devine.71@bigpond.com.

If all else fails I can be contacted on 0459 105 153.
