Hello again members.
What a busy few months we have ahead of us here at Queanbeyan Golf Club!
On Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th March, we host the 2020 Queanbeyan Pro-Am. With the absolute cream of PGA professionals contesting this event, it is sure to be the pinnacle of professional golf in the ACT/Monaro region for 2020. With over 60 PGA professionals vying for the $20,000.00 in prizemoney, there is sure to be a feast of golf for everyone to enjoy.
Entry forms are currently available at the club pro-shop, the clubhouse and online at www.queanbeyangolf.com.au. Get in early for your chance to be paired with one of Australia’s top PGA professionals.
As a curtain raiser to the Pro-Am, on Sunday 15th March, beginning at 4.00pm, our hometown hero Jake Nagle, will be competing against James Nitties (ex-PGA Tour player), Matt Millar (2018 Australian PGA Player of the Year) and Jack “corrupting one golf tournament at a time” Wilson (hopefully starring Rizz the Caddy) in a nine-hole $5000.00 invitation skins tournament.
The guys will be showcasing their talents on holes 1 to 8, with a grandstand finish on a shortened 18th hole (drivable par 4 over the trees!!), much to the delight of the following crowd. Be part of the fun. Entry is free. Bring your mates, your dog (on a leash please) or your family, to be part of the fun. Walk the course WITH the players, cheer on Jake, chat to the lads between shots. It’s going to be a GREAT DAY!!!
Our drinks cart will be supplying the bevvies, and possibly a few tunes, and the bistro will be open for Sunday dinner, after the fun of the golf course moves into the clubhouse.
If that isn’t enough golf for you, then why not be part of the upcoming 2020 Australian Boys’ Interstate Team Championships, commencing on Monday 20th April? Eighty of Australia’s best junior golfing talent will converge on Queanbeyan GC to contest the Australian Team Series Championships. (Last time they were held in the ACT/Monaro region was when a youthful Jason Day led his Queensland team to victory at Gungahlin Lakes) How many players from this year’s event will go on to become a Major winner?
