View Full Version : Qld: 2019 QLD Championships - Yeppoon

Good morning fellow Ozgolfers,

I would like to welcome you to the 2019 Ozgolf Queensland championships in laid-back Yeppoon.

The prestigious Duncan Bennett Memorial Trophy will again be up for grabs as golfers across the country compete to be Qld's top Ozgolfer. Last year some jerk took the trophy by shooting a weekend total of 66pts of a crap handicap to win - so this year it should be a doddle for someone to take the chocolates.

Kicking off Friday 6th September, and finishing on Monday 9th September, we aim to bring some of country QLD's finest golf.

THE GOLF:

Friday 6th September - Rockhampton GC: https://www.rockygolfclub.org.au/
16 Spots, 12:30pm first group. Walking or Carts. Also includes the terrifying 2-ball Banana Cup best ball multiplier
$40 inc prize fee. Carts - $35/cart. Rocky have extensive recips, so let me know if this is you.

Saturday 7th September - Capricorn Resort: http://www.capricornresortgolf.com.au/
16 spots, 12:30pm first group. Test yourself on one of queensland's great layouts.
CHAMPS Day 1
$60 inc prize fee. Carts included.

Sunday 8th September - Capricorn Resort: http://www.capricornresortgolf.com.au/
16 spots, 8:00am first group. I might be a prick and tip this out. Unless I have a chance of the prize.
CHAMPS Day 2
$60 inc prize fee. Carts included.

Monday 9th September - Emu Park GC: http://www.emuparkgolfclub.com.au/
12 Spots, 7:30am first group. Walking or Carts.
$30 inc prize fee. Carts - $35/cart

The Prizes:
Long drive / Multiple NTP for balls every day. Daily cash prizes for 1st and 2nd (and maybe 3rd), overall podiums, and best gross.

ACCOMMODATION:
Bookings start Friday night, through to Sunday night at the Coast Motel, just outside of Yeppoon. http://www.thecoastmotel.com.au/index.html

(http://www.thecoastmotel.com.au/index.html)Very close to Yeppoon central - pubs / surf club, and a short walk to the beach.

I have booked 5x twin share rooms. Queen bed rooms also available for the solo riders.
Solo room - $125/night
Share room - $68/night per person

LOGISTICS:
Being an 8hr-ish drive Brisbane to Rocky, I am able to break the trip up with limited accom in Maryborough (just under half way) at Chateau de Benno on Thursday night / Monday night. I have 3 beds and 2 couches, and could possibly set up a camper in the back yard.

Can also play at Maryborough on Thursday (or Hervey Bay if comp is essential).

And the fine print:
1. You will not be considered as entered until you supply your Full name, club and Golflink.
2. Payments due by End August. Late entries will be accepted pending availability.
3. All rounds for championship purposes will be scored as stableford.
4. We do this for fun, so don't be a dick if we don't quite have what you want, or you don't like it.

Payment by bank transfer - Please leave your user name and QLD as the message ie "QLD - username"

Put me in for the lot please, with walking on Friday/Monday and shared accommodation for maximum adventure value. I'm also interested in the halfway house, and will have a think about whether I want to play a Thursday and/or Tuesday round. Club is Gailes, currently unused golflink number is 4010320061.

2 nights share accom with the big unit I suppose.

Iím predicting 76 points to win this year

AndyP
24th July 2019, 01:03 PM
My current thought is to leave work (near the airport) at about 2p on Thursday , and drive to Benno's from there, although I wouldn't mind car pooling that part of the trip too. I don't think I need to add a fifth round on the Thursday though.

Wifeís birthday that weekend so Iíll be babysitting/parenting while sheís away with some mates.

Brad, you're welcome to stop with Andy at my place half way up (and down if required). I wouldn't be against jumping in the Navara as well if the option is still there.

AndyP
30th August 2019, 09:06 PM
My planning is in full swing. The current plan is to try and leave work at lunch time on Thursday and go via Maleny GC for a few holes and Glass House Brewery for dinner, on the way to Benno's.

I've looked up the two breweries in the Rocky area too. One in the heart of Rocky, which seems like it puts on a good feed too, and one with limited hours in an industrial area in Yeppoon. For the latter, only the Saturday morning is really available to us or the Sunday arvo, if Facebook is to be believed; it would be good for bottle fills though, they'll even fill a 1.25L plastic soft drink bottle for you, if you want. $15 per litre seems like a bargain too.

There's also a parkrun in Yeppoon and Rocky, in case you were wondering......

Who has played at Capricorn before? Their website has a course guide, but it needs a yards to metres conversion. I hope the course isn't marked like that.

If I use the distance indications as metres, then all of my fat shots should work out pretty well.

Have you played the other courses? Any reason for those two over North Rockhampton?

Since there is 4 of us playing Monday, we could play there instead if you like. It's pretty "rough" though. Rocky itself is always worth a play too. Top country track.

You donít need a guide, itís bomb and gauge at rocky and stay out of the kak at Capricornia .

It was just a copy and paste job anyway.

I was going to play the Maleny 12 hole course on the way up tomorrow, but their website says that it may be 18 holes by early next year, so I'm considering saving a round up there until then. Maybe 9 holes at Noosa Valley instead.

I've finally got some down time after a busy week. Damn other engineer going on leave.

I had a great weekend, as always, on a bunch of fun courses. I don't know why we didn't get more numbers this year. I never regret making the trip to Champs, regardless of the golf courses played. After some of the discussions we have had, I'm already looking forward to next year's. First, I need to have a good look at Vic Champs for next year though.
