Golf NSW were faced with no other option back in March but to postpone the semi-finals and finals as Social Gathering restrictions due to the COVID-19 crisis came into full effect.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Golf NSW has made changes to the venues and format for the remaining matches.

The semi-final contests for all men’s and women’s divisions will now be held in a home-and-away format, with the matches taking place on Sunday, 6 September and Sunday, 20 September respectively.

The Major Pennant Finals will now be held at Riverside Oaks Golf resort on Monday, 5 October.

In the event State Government Health Restrictions are still in place by then, alternative dates for the semi and finals have been made, beginning Sunday, 8 November for the semis, with the final to be held on Sunday, 6 December.

Golf NSW General Manager of Golf, Graeme Phillipson was thrilled to announce the resumption of the 2020 Metropolitan Major Pennant Competition.

“As the COVID crisis eases, it is our intention to resume our tournament schedule with a minimum of disruption as possible.

“The COVID crisis has tested the resolve of all of us not only in New South Wales, but across Australia, and the resilience and patience of all golfers, not only those involved in Metropolitan Major Pennant, but to anyone who is a participant in the sport has been wonderful,” Mr Phillipson said.
