Isuzu Queensland Open returns in August
BY Golf Queensland | 07 Mar 2014
Golf Queensland today announced the Isuzu Queensland Open would return to the Brookwater Golf and Country Club from 28 – 31 August 2014.
Chair of Golf Queensland, Peter Castrisos, said the Championship was successfully reinstated onto the PGA Tour of Australasia in 2013.
“We are now looking forward to capitalise on this success and grow the championship further on and off the course,” Mr Castrisos said.
“The Championship attracted higher than anticipated entries with 320 golfers vying for a spot in the field of only 120.
“We are proud of the results in 2013 which included working with the PGA, Brookwater Golf and Country Club and over 50 volunteers to deliver the Championship that attracted over 5,000 spectators.”
Mr Castrisos said the event proved it could gain significant media exposure for not only golf but for the Ipswich region.
“A key priority was working with children in the local region to introduce them to golf. We achieved this by engaging with 1,000 children through schools and other activities and intend to grow this further in 2014,” he said.
The 2014 Isuzu Queensland Open forms part of the PGA Tour of Australasia and will carry Official World Golf Ranking points.
The Isuzu Queensland Open is open to amateur golfers and PGA professionals to play in a 72 hole championship event.
Golfers including Norman Von Nida, Greg Norman, Ian Baker-Finch, Peter Senior and Stuart Appleby, who was an amateur when he won in 1991, have their names etched on the TB Hunter Cup.
