Throughout the year our 18 Veteran Clubs have an individual Veteran Open Day where they invite other NRVGA Veterans to their Course. Lunch and a game of Golf is provided for a maximum cost of $35.00.

NRVGA provides two $25.00 vouchers for prizes to two non-local, non-winning Veterans.

At each Veteran Open Day, 3 points are awarded to each Veteran for participating, and, 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2 points are allocated to the first five place-getters in each of the fields on the day.
At the end of the year’s program, the Veteran who accumulates the most points, is awarded the NSWVGA Medal. The Runner-Up is awarded the NRVGA Medal. These awards are presented at the Championships Presentation.

NOTE: 4BBB Teams entering the Championship Event MUST be members of the SAME Veteran Club.
