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.

South Burnett Wins 2018 Masters Team Match Play Title

Director Golf - Tuesday, October 09, 2018

With comprehensive victories over the Sunshine Coast at Murgon and the Glasshouse Mountains at Nanango (12.5 - 7.5), the South Burnett are the 2018 District Masters Team Match Play Champions.

In the race to avoid the wooden spoon, the Sunshine Coast once again comfortably held off the Glasshouse Mountains team at Maleny today.

Sunshine Coast 12 def Glasshouse Mountains 8.

Congratulations to Daryl Frost (Mt Coolum) for being the first player to score a hole in one at Maleny's new 8th hole. Special mention to Glasshouse Mountains and Bribie Island Life Member, Greg Paul for fighting back from 3 down with 3 holes to play to finish all square against his lacklustre opponent.

Congratulations to all players as all matches were played in great spirit!
