Congratulations to Murgon Golf Club

Director Golf - Tuesday, March 26, 2019

On Saturday, RACV Royal Pines Resort played host to the QLD Golf Industry Awards Night recognising the outstanding achievements of individuals, golf clubs and companies over the past 12 months.

With more than 400 guests and icons of the game including Charlie Earp, Wayne Grady, Paul King and Peter Senior in attendance, the night recognises the achievements of those from the PGA (QLD/NT), Golf Management Australia – Queensland Division, Golf Australia as well as the Golf Course Superintendents Association of Queensland.

A total of 31 awards were presented throughout the evening, with the Keperra Country Golf Club taking out the coveted GMAQ Golf Club of the Year Award.

Golf Australia presented several awards to our District, including Shae Wools-Cobb (Maroochy River) for Male Amateur Golfer of the Year, Cassie Porter (Peregian) for Junior Female Amateur Golfer of the Year, and Murgon Golf Club for QLD Golf Club of the Year (Under 400 members).

Murgon Golf Club - 2018 QLD Golf Club of the Year (under 400 members)

Murgon Golf Club is a volunteer operated club situated in the South Burnett region, three hours north of Brisbane. Financially, the Club has transformed from being on the verge of closure a few years ago, to now being in a strong financial position. By running both women’s and junior programs to encourage the growth of golf in the local community, Murgon GC increased its membership in the last year by 16%. Further, the club is proud to have 14 adult indigenous members amongst its ranks.

The golf course has a well-deserved reputation as an excellent country course with fully irrigated fairways and greens constructed to USGA standard. Since 2007, Golf Australia Queensland Office has chosen Murgon as the venue for the Queensland Indigenous Championships.

Murgon GC is not alone in having passionate volunteers involved at a club, but it is a standard bearer in its governance and community engagement.
