Welcome to the Victorian Chemists Golf Club

The inaugural meeting to form the Victorian Chemists Golf Club was held at the Victorian Pharmacy College in 1946. The purpose of the club was to promote the fellowship of pharmacists enjoying a game of golf and other athletic sports and pastimes.

The competitions usually occur on a monthly basis and the club enjoys the use of the premier golf courses in Melbourne and surrounds.

There is also an annual challenge between the qualifying members of the eastern states; this is played as a 5 round golf tournament over 7 days in a rotating host state or even off-shore.

Club Championships Results played Mon 24th July 2017

The Club Championships were played yesterday at Southern GC. The course was well presented and the greens were deceptively quick, particularly on the front nine. The weather held up with only several sprinklings of rain. Unfortunately the field was smaller than anticipated - 42 players

The winners were:
A Grade Champion: Phil Shay 86 gross
(on c/back from David Gorr)
B Grade Champion: Geoff Smith 88 gross
C Grade Champion: Peter Crump 99 gross

Members - Card Marking Rules you need to know

Some members are not checking their cards properly - particularly the 4 Ball cards

It is the Competitor's responsibility that all scores shown are correctly attributed to the correct competitor in the pair. If you allocate the wrong score to the incorrect person you run the risk of either a reduced 4 Ball score or disqualification - under the Rules of Golf

It is the Committee's job to make sure the points match the handicap for each score

Please make the Committee's job easier by taking a little more care before submitting your cards - thanks in advance to those already doing this
