Wowan tees up to celebrate 50 years

WOWAN Golf Club is calling all past and present members together to celebrate the club's 50th anniversary on Saturday and Sunday, October 3 and 4.

The club invites all past, present and community club members and golfers from throughout the Central Queensland region to their celebrations.

“Even if you are unable to play golf any more, we would love to see you,” Wowan club secretary Donna Reynolds said.

“If anyone has any photos of the history of the Wowan Golf Club, we would love to know of this too.

“Wowan Golf has service the Wowan and Dululu districts well and the members are very proud of their small country golf club,” she said.

Wowan Golf Club, situated an hour from Rockhampton, holds annual golfing events throughout the year and welcomes all social clubs to visit for a game of golf.

“We have five sand greens and four grass greens, and although the district is experiencing dry conditions at present, the course is in great shape, thanks to the work put in by the volunteers,” Donna said.

She said the club was well known for its great country hospitality for 50 years.

“Wowan has a good golfing history, winning the prestigious Robinson Cup many times,” Donna said.

To get the 50th anniversary celebrations under way on Saturday, October 3, golfers are invited to arrange their partners for a three-ball ambrose competition (can be mixed). The draw will take place at 10am.

Donna said the anniversary cake would be cut in the afternoon and a social evening was planned with music by Anne Etherton and catering by the Wowan QCWA ladies.

On Sunday, October 4, partners will play a two-ball ambrose competition with the draw at 10am.

“If you would like a game, we will slot you in as we want everyone to come along and enjoy the celebrations,” she said.
