Day one of the 2019 NSWVGA Stroke-Play Championships was abandoned early on Monday due to the state of the course.
Relentless rain from the early hours of the morning eventually made the course unplayable, with multiple fairways and greens under water.
The event was reverted to a 36-hole tournament, with day two played at Glenmore Heritage Valley Golf Club and day three at Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club.
Richmond Golf Club will host the Richmond Cup this Saturday, March 30.
It is set to feature a full field of 162 starters comprised of the best amateur male golfers with a Golf Australia handicap up to 12.4.
Tee-offs will begin from 7am. Spectators are welcome.
