The Stawell Golf Club is still yet to set a date for its 2018 men’s club championships.

Originally scheduled for February, the championships were postponed due to the state of course after persistent heat in summer.

Stawell Golf Club men’s co-captain Richard Hackwill said the match committee is in ongoing discussions to decide a date. 

“We have another meeting coming up next week and we will keep working hard to find a date,” he said.

Hackwill said the club wants to select a date that is conducive to the best possible golf.

“We want to be sure we have the best players available to play on a course that is suitable for championships,” he said. 


The championships will still be played over three rounds.

Discussions will be had about the format of the three rounds, whether they should remain unchanged and played over three weekends or cut shorter to two weekends in a  Saturday-Sunday-Saturday format.
