Hi All
Welcome to the month of May and guess some of us are not looking forward to coming wet and cold days on the course. Lots of reading in both this email and the attached newsletter with photo credits to Heather Burke, Damien Clear and Brendan Fogarty so grab a cuppa sit back and read.
The Deaf Golf Australia Championships 2017 at Wollongong wrapped up last Tuesday 25th April. It was a fantastic event in perfect weather by the surf beach (sorry I cant help mention that) and enjoyed by all who attended. Well done to NSWDeaf Golf with DGA for their excellent organization.
Jack Besley (DGV Team Captain) has written an excellent report which you can read in the attached newsletter No15.(
It was a good showing by the DGV Team against the more experienced and strong NSWDG Team on their turf.
Looking at the results there is the chance DGV may be fortunate to have possibility of the double at the World Deaf Championships at Ireland next year with the Mens Champion and the Womens Champion. Lets get behind Jack and Linda in their quest for those Championships as well as other DGV members who will be part of the DGA Team selected to travel to Ireland in 2018.

Other news is that the Newbie Deafgolf Clinics commence this Sunday 7th May. There are 3 men and 10 women confirmed which is an excellent number. We hope they enjoy the clinics and can join us on future DGV golf days. It is always good to see new Deafies out on the course.

Now an important reminder that Deaf Golf Victoria Open Championships 2017 will be at Albury GC in October 14th & 15th. Entry forms and information re accommodation will be available soon so keep a look out for emails, FB posts and the DGV website in June.

Finally DGV committee welcomes Jack Besley who has accepted a request that his extensive golf experience and knowledge would be much valued contributor as a member of DGV committee. Welcome aboard Jack.
