New GolfVic affiliation rules mean that each year Romsey Golf Club will pay the annual affiliation fee (~$50.00) for anyone with a RGC GolfLink number who uses that GolfLink number. This means that we will list all non-financial members with GolfLink and these player's GolfLink numbers will not be active. To reactivate a GolfLink number a player simply has to become a financial member at RGC or another golf club.
If you are an experienced golfer who has just moved into the area or if you, or another member of your family, is thinking of taking up golf for the very first time; please come down to the club, play a round and meet representatives from the committee and other club members.
Romsey Golf Club is an accredited MyGolf club. MyGolf is a program sponsored by both GolfVic and GolfAus, there is a one-off charge of $35.00, however once paid the individual involved may take part in any MyGolf program until they turn 16. We work with golf professional Tony Collier (Stuart Appleby Golf Academy) to plan and run five (5) training sessions for juniors (aged between eight (8) and sixteen (16)). These sessions take place after Tony has run two golf sessions at Romsey Primary School.
The RGC MyGolf program usually runs between 4.00 pm and 5.00 pm on a weekday during November and early December. At the end of our five-week program each participant receives a Dec-April RGC membership.
Juniors are most welcome to compete in weekly competitions. After handing in score cards for three completed rounds they will recieve a temporary handicap, after five completed rounds they will receive an official GolfAus handicap.
