Australian Chemist Golf Carnival 2021

A message from the President of Queensland Chemists Golf Club…
Well, it’s the middle of the week and in a different world, we would be halfway through our ACGA 2020 carnival in Tasmania.
It’s about now we would be relaxing back reminiscing about the wonderful courses that we have played and anxiously awaiting those that remain.
In the clubhouse, you can hear the constant chatter whilst we enjoy each other’s company over some great food and wine discussing how we could have played better, or perhaps skiting on how well we have played, and of course, madly checking our positions on the betting card to calculate how to remain even at the end of the week.
Unfortunately, it is a very different world at present and the effect that COVID-19 is having on the entire world is something that most of us have never witnessed or experienced before. With the current necessary drastic measures in place and with the cooperation of all citizens of Australia we can only hope to return to some form of normality soon.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the current ACGA committee and those of Tasmania Chemists Golf Club for their efforts towards hosting ACGA2020. Your decisive action was indeed wise and although difficult to swallow it shows great strength of character.
As you are all aware, Queensland is the next host state to hold our carnival and it is normally customary to announce this at the closing dinner.
As this is not possible on this occasion, we have put together a short video for you as a bit of a teaser for 2021.
Enjoy…and stay safe and see you in Queensland for ACGA carnival 2021️‍♀️️‍♂️⛳️

Covid-19 & The Vines Update 28th April 2020

28/04/20 

WAPGC Members  

 Further to our advice for the interim game at The Vines on Tuesday, May 12th, 2020 I now advise that this club has relaxed the distancing rules for playing purposes only along with the new guidelines announced by the state government on the weekend. Groups can now be 4.  

Hit off times are between 7.50 am and 8.30 am. There is an option to also walk the course at $40 per player but the cart and player rate will still be $60. We still have 20 places booked but if the numbers increase, we should be able to adjust. 

The game will still be played without ceremony at both game ends. 

Please consider this as soon as you can as fees must be paid along with acceptance. We must confirm our booking by the 5th of May.

COVID-19

With the current COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in place, we are endeavouring to organise the 2020 tour as best we can. Currently, we have scheduled an event with limited places at The Vines on the 12th of May. Moving forward from there we have cancelled the Kwinana event but retained the others pending review with any revised restrictions from authorities.
