2020 District Masters' Tour

Monday, March 23, 2020

In light of national and ongoing Covid-19 concerns, the SCSBDGA Management Committee reluctantly confirms the upcoming events through to the end of May have been cancelled. Golf Australia’s protocols insist that all events involving crowds or large-scale travel be strictly reviewed given the current health issues we’re confronting as a community. That is, the following events will not proceed in 2020:

  • 6 April – Masters’ Tour @ Wondai
  • 7 April – Masters’ Tour @ Kingaroy
  • 3 May – District Novice Junior Event @ Maleny
  • 3 & 4 May – District Mid-Amateur and Senior Men’s Championships @ Caloundra. Please note that Caloundra Golf Club may still proceed with their own event. Contact Caloundra Golf Club directly for more information.
  • 11 May – Masters’ Tour @ Woodford
  • 26 May – District Inter-zone Masters’ Team Challenge @ Murgon (Sunshine Coast vs South Burnett)
  • 31 May – Inter-District Team Match Play vs Golf Wide Bay @ Tin Can Bay.

These decisions are not taken lightly. But regrettably, these events will not take place in 2020. The priority will always remain the safety and wellbeing of all stakeholders in the sport.

Decisions about future District events will be made at a later date.

Furthermore, the Masters' Tour schedule has changes in the format for the remainder of the year. Whenever possible, it has become necessary to prevent groups of people congregating in the clubhouse, Proshop and scoring areas. Hence, the District Masters Tour events will not be shotgun starts for the foreseeable future.
