Price Increases from 1 January 2022

OUR PRICES HAVE NOT INCREASED FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. 

WITH INCREASED MEMBERSHIP AT GOLF CLUBS, MOST CLUBS NOW WANT A PRICE INCREASE IN SOME CASES SUBSTANTIAL.

SPONSORSHIP IS BECOMING MORE DIFFICULT AND WE MAY LOSE SOME SPONSORS.

AT THE LAST COMMITTEE MEETING THE FOLLOWING PRICES WERE SET FROM 1 JANUARY 2022

  1. Standard Weekly Game fee will be $25
  2. Resort type courses will be $50 (payment required in advance)
  3. Shirts will be $40
  4. New Memberships will be $70 (covers the increased price of shirts)

Annual renewal fee will remain unchanged at $15pa

Resumption of Nearest The Pins. (Listed 30 April 2021)

THE BDVGA COMMITTEE HAVE DECIDED TO RESUME NTP’s BEGINNING ON 10th MAY AT

REDLAND BAY. PINS WILL BE IN THREE GRADES WITH 5 BALLS ALLOCATED TO EACH WINNER.

THE PIN PRIZE HAS BEEN REDUCED FROM THE HISTORICAL 6 BALLS TO 5 TO ENABLE THE

BALL RUNDOWN TO INCREASE FROM THE PRE_COVID 34 POINTS TO A MORE GENEROUS

33 POINTS EACH WEEK. THE RECENT 30 POINT RUNDOWN WAS ONLY THERE TO COMPENSATE

WHEN WE HAD NO PINS. THE GRADES FOR THE GRADE PLACEGETTERS AND THE NTP’s WILL

BE THE SAME AT A PARTICULAR COURSE, BUT WILL VARY FROM COURSE TO COURSE TO

ENABLE APPROXIMATELY EQUAL NUMBERS IN EACH GRADE ON ANY ONE DAY AS SHOWN 

IN THE TABLE BELOW. (The current handicapping system would otherwise result in greatly varying

numbers in each grade from week to week if grade ranges remained constant.)

Grades will be published each week on the home page and in your tee time reminder email.

Your handicap will be on your card or APP. If you are in contention for an NTP it is extremely

important that you or your marker put your name on the correct NTP grade card and have it

checked by another person. A incorrect grade entry usually means that the pin cannot be awarded

incurring the wrath of both the person with a good shot who misses out and the BDVGA Committee.

Please Take Care.

Please take a card as backup in case your have problems with the app. or your phone.

You will need to enter BDVGA when asked for Your Club Name, not the course you are playing.

MATCHPLAY CHAMPIONSHIPS

At its last meeting, the committee decided to change the matchplay championships from a scratch event to a handicap event.

Qualifying will still be the best 8 available from each grade in the BDVGA Championships but will be based on Nett Scores

rather than Gross Scores over the two rounds. This will give a greater number of members a better chance of winning.
