The staff on-site have no discretion to vary any of the rules. Members should appreciate, particularly in these challenging times, that the situation requires careful management. While an individual may be disadvantaged by the rules, they are developed for the good of all, keeping in mind the general principles that have been set.

Members may email the Club at info@victoriagolf.com.au if they wish to obtain further information, but please do not engage with the staff about these rules. The Board and Management have instructed the staff accordingly.

Thank you for your understanding.
