Reopening Message from the President

Dear Golfers,

We’re finally able to welcome you back to the Edithvale Public Golf Course and can’t wait to see you out on the greens.

With the reopening however, there are several restrictions that must be adhered to while at the facility. These restrictions are mandated by the Victorian Government and Golf Australia and must be followed at golf courses across metropolitan Melbourne.

We ask that at all times, however especially now, that everyone remains respectful, polite and courteous to all facility staff.

We understand that these restrictions can be frustrating, or a wait at the tee can be annoying but every person coming to the facility should follow the instructions of the staff.

If a staff member asks you to wear your mask, asks you to check in using the QR code, tells you that you cannot sit around after your round of golf and have a drink or that you cannot play as a group greater than two, it is because of these restrictions, and they are simply doing their job in enforcing them within our facility. Please just accept it and remain respectful.

A quick reminder of the restrictions –

• All Players must reside within 15kms of the club/facility;

• Masks must be worn at all times unless there is a medical reason not to do so. This includes while playing golf;

• All members and visitors must check in using the QR service;

• There is no competition golf.

• Golf Shop will be open for takeaway food and beverages during play only, there is to be no gathering after a round;

• Clubhouse will be closed.

• Given the complexities around maximum group numbers, play will be in groups of two (2) players, until restrictions ease.

The staff have the full support and backing of the Australasian Golf Club Board in these endeavours, and we ask that everyone please give them the same.

Kind Regards,

Roland Lindell
President
Australasian Golf Club

Reopening the Course

At this point of time we are unsure as to when we will be able to reopen, due to the key criteria for reopening being 80% first dose vaccination. Unfortunately, it does not look as though that will be reached by Sunday.

As soon as we know for sure we will advise over the coming days, but please be assured we will be open for business as soon as we are given the go ahead.If we are given the go ahead for this Sunday, we will do our best to have the gates open. The morning will be reserved for members, as is normal for a Sunday, however there will be no competition played.
We stress again however, opening Sunday is not a guaranteed option. It all hinges on the percentage of first dose vaccinations.

Below are the restrictions and requirements, as per Golf Australia, that players must follow while at the Edithvale Public Golf Course –

• All Players must reside within 15kms of the club/facility that they play at;
• Masks must be worn at all times unless there is a medical reason not to do so. This includes while playing golf;
• All members and visitors must check in using the QR service;
• There is no competition golf.
• Golf Shop will be open for takeaway food and beverages during play only, there is to be no gathering after a round;
• Clubhouse will be closed.
• Given the complexities around maximum group numbers, play will be in groups of two (2) players, until restrictions ease.

The Club recognizes that these are trying times and asks patience of all members and patrons, these requirements are mandated by the Government and Golf Australia, not the Club/Course.
It is important that the Club, members and patrons strictly adhere to these mandates.
Further COVID restriction changes are scheduled for October 26, at which point Victoria is anticipated to reach the 70% second dose vaccination target.
Future changes will be implemented as further announcements are made by the Government and Golf Australia.

Updated: Work Underway on 9th Hole!

Work has begun on improving the 9th hole over the past few weeks. The new improvements will incentivize golfers to avoid hitting towards the houses around the boundary. This will also see the return to the back of the 9th tee on a permanent basis.

The first stage of the works saw new trees along the boundary side of the hole as well as the marking out of new garden beds and hazards along that side of the fairway.

More recently, a new bunker has been completed and two new garden beds have been created awaiting mulching and planting. Stay tuned for more improvements over the coming weeks!

Update: More work has been completed and the hole is shaping up nicely. A bunker has gone up on the corner and multiple garden beds have been built.
