WEST VETS CANCELLATIONS AND UPDATE ON THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
In light of the recent directive from the UK Government to avoid non-essential social contact, we have taken the decision to cancel/postpone the Spring Meeting at Lanark, the Summer Meeting at Cathkin Braes along with the Championship at Renfrew.
The number of clubs around Scotland who have now closed their catering and bar facilities is increasing daily.
I am also aware that things are likely to escalate over the next few weeks.
We are extremely disappointed but agree that this is in the best interests of our members.
The draw for Blairgowrie will go ahead, we have been allocated 11 spaces. So far 9 couples have sent Sandra applications. If you still wish to apply, can you do so by 4th April.
We normally ask for names of ladies who wish to be considered for our 3 Team Matches, to put there names forward when attending the Spring Meeting, can you email myself if you wish to be considered for selection for any of the matches listed below.
For players with a handicap of 10 and above there are two matches:
The singles match against Midlands, 28th May at Troon Portland
The Foursomes match against East, 13th August at Turnhouse GC
For players with a handicap of 9 and under
Singles match against East, 2nd June at Douglas Park
Obviously, we will be looking at the current situation nearer the time as to whether any of these matches will take place.
It may be possible to try and play the Championship later in the year, however that is something we can look at over the coming weeks.
Stay safe everyone.
