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.

Welcome Back Vets!

 

Well it’s been a long time coming, but at last we are back playing Vets competition as of 14th July. We suspect there will still be the restriction on social distancing on this date, so we will not be able to have the raffles but we are able to hold presentations at the present time. The programme of events has been changed and these are noted later on this page. In the meantime it will be wonderful to see the green shirts out in force again.
