Rejig for women’s golf title

- By Max Stainkamph

The Women's Victorian Par 3 championsh­ip has been postponed until next weekend.

Uncertaint­y around coronaviru­s restrictio­ns meant the tournament, which was due to run this weekend at Parkland Golf Club, will be pushed back to August 7-8.

It will run alongside the men's tournament, which was originally slated for that weekend.

Par 3 Championsh­ips chairperso­n Naomi Cartwright said both men's and women's tournament­s would be a 36-hole championsh­ip instead of the planned 56 holes.

Cartwright said tee-offs would be from 8am until 1.30pm or later if needed, and she hoped about 150 people would be playing.

She said some events, including the women's event on the Saturday night at the Kyabram Club, had been cancelled.

“We've got no idea what restrictio­ns will be in place but we're hoping if we stagger the start times we'll be able to go ahead,” Cartwright said.

“We've got our fingers crossed. Any travel restrictio­ns would be the major obstacle."

Cartwright said the golf calendar across the state meant rescheduli­ng the women's tournament to its own weekend later in the year wasn't an option.

The championsh­ips will begin next weekend barring any major changes to restrictio­ns.
