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.

LOUIS CLAIMS 2014 QLD INDIGENOUS CHAMPIONSHIP AT MURGON

SCSB District Golf - Sunday, March 23, 2014

Kodi Louis (formerly a District Representative and from Nambour Golf Club, now Yeppoon ) has outclassed his rivals with a final round 66 to claim the 2014 Queensland Indigenous Championship at Murgon Golf Club

Louis and Craig Dodd (Blackwater) went into the final round locked on 3-under, however after nine holes today, Louis had jumped out to a 2-shot lead.


A costly bogey on the 14th put pay to any final charge by Dodd and despite a nervous 3 putt bogey on the penultimate hole, Louis closed out in style with a birdie 3 on the 72nd.

Making his first visit to Murgon for the Championships, Louis commented on the warm welcome he had received and is already planning his 2015 trip.

When told of the additional prize of a place in the Isuzu Queensland Open Pro Am to be held at Brookwater Golf and Country Club, Louis couldn't hide his excitement. "To have the opportunity to tee it up with the big boys and see how they play is going to be amazing," he said.

Joining Louis in the Pro Am is the Championship runner-up and overall Nett winner Dodd. Playing off a handicap of 5, Dodd was an impressive 18 under for the weekend.

Whilst initially disappointed at letting the Championship slip, Dodd's mood significantly lifted when told he too would be playing the Pro Am.

A field of three contested the Women's Division of the Championship with Kimberley Crawley (Horton Park) claiming the win after impressive rounds of 81, 77 and 72.

Runner up was Ashleigh Hay (Burleigh), with Regina Hussey (Rowes Bay) returning the best nett score.

Prize List:
Champion - Kodi Louis (Yeppoon)
Runner Up - Shane Bird (Wondai)
Third - Rickie Dodd (Windaroo)
Nett Winner - Craig Dodd (Blackwater)
Senior Gross - Brett Angeles (Nudgee)
Senior Nett - Max Conlon (Murgon)

Women's Champion - Kimberley Crawley (Horton Park)
