The Golf Society is sad to report the passing of member David Kelso on 14th December.
David held memberships at UK golf clubs Bryn Meadows and Celtic Manor from 1983 -2001 and in that time had a successful Pennant career as a Team Captain and Manager of several teams.
He was accomplished hickory player and a regular at the hickory days held at Frankston Golf Club where he was a member.

Our thoughts are with his wife Candida and family.

Dear Members,

We hope you are well and enjoying a little more freedom and a return to the fairways.

As regional Victoria and Metropolitan Melbourne begins to slowly open up, we have
begun some planning towards how best we can manage the remainder of the year.

The Society is reliant on access to golf courses and their clubhouses to run their

The restrictions in place around competition golf, visitor access and indoor gathering
numbers affect our ability to run an event successfully if at all, and so it seems likely we will have to make some hard decisions re the postponed events.

Whilst still hopeful of some small golf days later in the year we have decided to defer

GSA President’s Message

Dear Golf Society members,

I hope everyone is well and keeping busy during this difficult time.

As you are aware, Stage 4 has really affected our ability to run the many scheduled functions and events. Although disappointing, you will agree our situation is minor compared to the difficult times and sadness the pandemic has brought to many people.

If you have been touched by these terrible times, we are thinking of you.

Your committee is hopeful of running the postponed events, but as the year goes on, and clubs are finalising their own events, it will become more difficult. However, the clubs involved have indicated they will accommodate us as best can.

We will maintain communications with them, and when the situation becomes clearer in mid-September, we will keep you informed.

We value our members, appreciate your understanding, hope you enjoyed the recent newsletter and are following our Facebook page.

Stay safe everyone, and to our metropolitan Victorian members that cannot play golf, we certainly have plenty to watch on television.

Graeme Ryan
