NEW SOUTH WALES SUPER SENIOR GOLF ASSOCIATION(Inc)
REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE MEETING HELD ON FRIDAY 16TH JULY 2021
The full Committee met via Zoom on Friday July 16 to discuss the potential effect of the NSW Government’s lockdown extension on the start of the 2021 Pennant. It was decided at that meeting to delay the Pennant commencement by three weeks to now start on Monday August 16.
The Clubs that were scheduled to host games in the first three rounds of the original draw, will be contacted to try to establish suitable alternative hosting dates in Rounds 5,6 & 7, which will be in w/c September 13, 20 & 27 respectively, with the Finals series to commence in the first week of October.
Given the ever-evolving nature of the COVID 19 virus, we may be forced to review the start date again, as our competition can only commence if all of the three criteria below, are met.
The lockdown is not extended beyond July 30.
Restrictions on travel between LGA’s and beyond the 10km limit are lifted.
Golf can return to be played in fours.
We will continue to monitor the advice of the NSW Govt, NSW Health and Golf NSW and ask that all Clubs remain patient.
Your Committee will do everything possible to safely run the Pennant in 2021, as we did last year when the competition was dislocated for six weeks during a similar outbreak.
The following Documents are now posted on the Website and were voted unanimously by the Committee to be adopted.
1. Rules of Play 16th July 2021.To be found under the RULES banner. Important changes to Rules 7 and 8 are present.
2. The Game Result Sheet located under the FORMS banner on the Website.

On behalf of the Committee.
