Bargara Vets

Vet’s golf as we know it today commenced in the 1980’s and is administered by the Australian Veteran Golf Association through State and District bodies . There are over eight thousand Queensland Members in the 23 districts , which includes Wide Bay. Our area contains 17 clubs with Bargara having in excess of 270 members . Veteran golf provides a unique opportunity for men and women to enjoy each others company at a reasonable cost and on a regular basis . Bargara Vets play most Tuesdays during the calendar year and conduct a full fixture list of ‘open’ and ‘club’ events during the season. Additionally , Bargara has hosted a number of State and Regional Championship events in recent times .  We welcome visitors at all times of the year .
