Hi and welcome to the Metro VRI golf club!
This club as many of you are aware has been the organiser for the annual VRI golf tournament which just celebrated its 69th year. The club also organises the Victorian ANZRI tournament which is held every 2 years by a different state railway or New Zealand rail.
The Metro golf club supports all city and country centre days by advertising, promoting and attending as many events as possible.
As well as the centre days there are two extremely strong VRI golf clubs that play once a month:
Northern VRI Golf Club: Play once a month on a Sunday at different courses over the North West culminating in their season ending trip to Rich River.
South East VRI Golf Club: Play once a month on a Monday at the prestigious Keysborough Golf Club, they also have a trip away which is at Yarrawonga.
We encourage all VRI members and guests to join us at any of our golfing activities. The prizes are well worthwhile, but more importantly you have the opportunity to meet and play with new people on courses that you may have not experienced,or would like to play once more.
The 69th annual VRI golf tournament was held for the first time at Tocumwal golf club. Previously this event was held at the Rossdale golf club for 65 years. The tournament used to be run over 4 days starting on a Monday and was extremely popular for many years. Unfortunately, the numbers have decreased at an alarming rate, so much so that the committee decided to make the bold move up north on the Murray River over a weekend.
I am pleased to announce the tournament was an outstanding success with 45 players attending the three-day golfing event. Tocumwal was the ideal place as all members stayed on course in very accommodating motel rooms with breakfast provided daily and meal vouchers for the dinner.
Further to this the scheduled ANZRI Golf Carnival due to be held in Mandurah, WA 2021 has been rescheduled to 2022. Further details will be released closer to the time.
