Keperra Country Golf Club Manager Gavin Lawrence and resident PGA pro Peter Zealley have taken out the 2020 Club Car Manager/Pro day on a countback!
The format was a 4BBB and Individual Stableford, held at Redcliffe Golf Club on a beautiful mid-20-degree day, albeit with a bit of tricky wind.
Club Car had a great Hole in One offer up for grabs- a new golf buggy. No luck for anyone on the day unfortunately.
The day started out with some coffee and catch up with old friends. A moment of silence for Jarrod Lyle #doingitforjarrod then started the official proceedings. The group supported the CHALLENGE campaign with $650 being raised on the day (besting last year’s total of $500), via direct donation and raffle tickets. The players all had some element of yellow in their playing attire.
GMA National partner De Bortoli Wines donated a 3ltr bottle of red wine from a limited range to help increase the excitement on the raffle. The bottle was won by Mt Coolum General Manager, Sharon Purnell. We are told that the bottle is the kind that needs to all be drunk once its open so we hope Sharon will find many friends who are willing to help her out!
QLD PGA Manager Broc Greenhalgh gave an update on upcoming PGA events, new strategic focus and career pathway programs and promotions this year – a date for the PGA Championship is still to be decided.
With a field of approximately 40 players, including several of our GMA national partners in attendance, you could not have asked for a better day. It provided an excellent opportunity for networking with industry peers and enjoying the game that we are all so passionate about, as well supporting a very worthy cause.
We are very fortunate to be able to hold these events (first golf day in 10 months) in Queensland and our thoughts go out to our colleagues in Victoria and elsewhere.
Thanks to Paul Jones and Kevin Gates from Club Car for their continued support. Also thanks to Phil Laurie from MiClub in assisting with online scoring for the day, utilising their ever popular MiScore app. It made organising things so much easier.
Many of the partners in attendance on the day were new to our members, so it was great opportunity to meet the new faces and we look forward to working with them in coming years.
