Help us celebrate as the Beerwah Golf Club turns 50
It’s been an awesome 50 years since formation on August 30, 1968. Starting with just 38 members and 18 associates, today we boast a membership of more than 700.
Beerwah Golf Club has enjoyed the support of the local community from the start.
Many fundraising activities were undertaken in the ensuing months and years – dances, raffles, barbecues, wine and cheese tastings, street stalls and more, but the project succeeded only because of the tireless work of the many volunteers who gave their time and machinery for long hours for the working bees.
Every Tuesday, 16 members still get together at a working bee, supplementing the four-man permanent greens staff.
In 1968 Beerwah Golf Club was a nine-hole course with small, round raised greens, now it comprises 18 wonderful greens of flowing Tiff Dwarf grass, said to be among the best in Southeast Queensland.
The friendly and welcoming staff of the fully stocked pro shop will guide you on your way, and afterwards you can relax in our clubhouse while taking in the stunning views of the local flora and fauna.
Beerwah Golf Club is very excited to announce – after hosting a PGA Pro-Am Series event at the club for 17 years – 2018 will see the Elgin Valley Beerwah Legends Pro-Am for the very first time.
See more than 50 Legends professionals compete for $15,000 in prizemoney on Wednesday, August 8.
Professionals will be joined by more than 100 amateur players, not only from the Beerwah Golf Club but right across Southeast Queensland, embracing the opportunity to play alongside the Legends in a tournament environment.
The first year a pro-am was staged was 1986. Winners have included Jeff Woodland, Terry Price and Beerwah Golf Club’s very own head professional John Mellish in 1987.
Notables already entered this year include Brad Burns (2017 Legends Order of Merit Champion) and Tim Elliott (2015/16 Legends Order of Merit Champion). Further marquee players will be released closer to the date.
Don’t miss this inaugural event.
