Volunteering and giving back to the community is embedded in the DNA of gregarious Vic Open volunteers Anne and Michael Keogh.

Michael has spent much of his adult life either volunteering or working with volunteers. Both have been volunteer golf officials for more than 2 decades.

“I have always volunteered – I still volunteer at Cabrini Hospital every week and we both always look forward to the Vic Open each year.

“We first heard about the Vic Open over 20 years ago when my club Cranbourne hosted it and that’s when we first became involved in it – prior to that I had volunteered at the Australian Masters and the Australian Open,” Michael, 69, said in his endearing Irish accent.

While volunteers are integral to the success of any golf tournament, the Keogh’s confess they in turn feel rewarded and fulfilled from their involvement.

“We love to catch up with friends we’ve made from the tournament each year – we have really missed the company and the involvement in the event. We book an apartment in Torquay each year and make a real outing of it.

“The Vic Open has a magic atmosphere about it – everyone is friendly, happy and helpful – the format is magnificent now that we get to watch both the women and men play together,” added 68 year old Anne.

The affable Malvern East couple will again be first in line to volunteer for next year’s Vic Open at 13th Beach from 10-13 February.
