THE YOUNG CHERRY FESTIVAL

VETERANS WEEK OF GOLF

17th to 22nd November 2019
 


The 22nd Young Cherry Festival Veterans Week of Golf will be held from the 17th to the 22nd November 2019.

The event is scheduled and approved by the NSWVGA and is normally held in the third week of November each year.

The Young Golf Course presents a picturesque and challenging layout and rewards the accurate player who can keep the ball on the lush and beautifully manicured fairways.

 

An expansive automatic watering system installed in 2013 by the Young Shire Council as part of the redevopment of the Young Sewerage Treatment works ensures the fairways are equal to the best available all year round.

A dedicated green staff with some club volunteers maintain the off fairway areas to ensure players enjoyment resulting in minimal delay and a more enjoyable round.

 

The week starts with a wine tasting and fashion parade from 5.00 pm on Sunday (17th) and is an opportunity for regular players to catch up with golfing mates from all parts of the compass who converge on Young in November.

The cherry harvest is generally in full swing and cherries are very much featured in the weeks activities.

Visitors have the opportunity to visit an orchard and 'pick your own' fruit or arrange to purchase cases of fruit for personal enjoyment or for friends.

 

We have a free and extensive cherry raffle at out presentation dinner on Friday evening.

 

From a starting point in 1998 when we had just on 100 players participating the fields have grown and in recent years we have at times hosted over 200 players each day. It should be noted that we do have players who may just come for one or two days but priority is given to early entries who book for the whole week.

A limited number of golf carts are available for hire thanks to the generosity of our club members and enquiries in this regard are handled by our golf professional Byrce Mawhinney on 63821543. Contact with Byrce should be made at the time of entry.
