  • Responsible Service of Liquor


    The Mansfield Golf Club adheres to the Victorian guidelines for patron intoxication as pursuant to the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998.

    We are a proud member of the Mansfield Liquor Accord, and continue to implement all baring notices which are issued by the accord.

    What is the law in Victoria?

    The Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 states it is an offence for a licensee or permittee to supply liquor to a person in a state of intoxication, or to permit drunken or disorderly persons to be on the licensed premises, or on any authorised premises.

    A definition of intoxication is contained in the Act. Section 3AB (1) states:

    For the purposes of this Act, a person is in a state of intoxication if his or her speech, balance, co-ordination or behaviour is noticeably affected and there are reasonable grounds for believing that this is the result of the consumption of liquor.


    Patrons who do not adhere to the Mansfield Golf Club’s intoxication policy may be fined in excess of $2000 or be issued with a fine on the spot through

    an infringement notice. It is also an offence for other persons to obtain alcohol or aid and abet an intoxicated person, with a maximum fine exceeding $2,000.

    Gambling Code of Conduct

    The Mansfield Golf Club adopts the Frontier Hospitality Responsible Gambling Code of Conduct (Code) which is a code of self-governance that augments relevant legislation (the Gambling Regulation Act 2003), regulations, rules, procedures and the Ministerial Directions.

    The Victorian Commission for Gambling Liquor and Racing (VCGLR) administers Victoria’s gambling legislation by licensing, educating and advising members of the gambling industry and the general public.

    The VCGLR works with commercial licence holders and industry peak bodies to enable compliance under the Ministerial Directions with approved Codes. A wide range of those involved in the industry participated in a consultation process with the VCGLR to assist in the development of ‘model’ Codes.

    Self Exclusion
    Responsible Gambling Self Exclusion Programs

    The Mansfield Golf Club adopts the AHA self exclusion program to assist individuals who experience problems as a result of their gambling activity.

    Self Exclusion is an entirely voluntary process. It is an agreement the individual makes with themselves, for themselves. It involves no other person in any responsibilities – legal or otherwise.

    Although the Mansfield Golf Club is not legally obliged to enforce the Self Exclusion Program, its endorsement demonstrates our concern for patron wellbeing.

    The Mansfield Golf Club and staff ensure the availability of relevant support information for patrons within our venue. The Club’s SEP representative is its General Manager.

    For further information on our Self Exclusion Program please contact the AHA Self Exclusion team – on (03) 9654 3491 – 24 hour answering service.
