Covid Update for 11/23/2020
It has come to the attention of the VGA Board of directors that a few members have contracted COVID-19 over the past week. The VGA board urges all players to take every precaution possible if you decide it safe to play golf in a VGA tournament. We emphasize bringing hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes, wearing masks, social distancing, etc. The board also recommends using your common sense. If you’re not feeling well, stay home. Golf is one of the few activities we have during these unique times and as a result, the VGA board recommends to play golf, have fun, but be as safe as feasibly possible.
Covid-19 be aware.
To all VGA players: Please, you should bring enough drinking water with you to make it through your round. Some courses are not providing water or coolers during the covid-19 era on the course and on some, the cart girl doesn’t exist either. It’s going to be a long Summer.
To: All VGA Members: It has come to the attention of the VGA Board of directors there are member concerns regarding the Corona Virus and whether or not the VGA should or should not continue to play its tournaments. A vote was extended to all board members for their opinion regarding this issue. Responses from all 13 board members voted in favor of continuing its play golf tournaments until such time the public is ordered by the Governor to “Stay at Home”. The VGA board recommends taking all necessary precautions if there are any concerns including bringing hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes. The board also recommends using your common sense. If you’re not feeling well, stay home. Golf is one of the few activities we have during these unique times and as a result, the VGA board recommends to play golf, have fun, but be safe.
Respectfully, Dan Campos, VGA President
