MAJOR EVENTS

Hervey Bay Golf Club hosts several feature amateur golf events during the season which are open to members and players from other clubs.

These tournaments always receive wonderful support, are well received by the participants and give the club the chance to showcase its excellent facilities to a wider audience. They include the City of Hervey Bay Men’s Open and the Ladies Open Carnival, which are both staged in October.

Volkswagen Scramble

This event (formerly Holden) has been running for many years and for the first time sponsored by Volkswagen. Our event was a mixed team competition run in January 2019 that resulted in one team of four plus one of our Pros and a scorer going to the regional finals at Pelican Waters Golf Club on the Sunshine Coast in March. Sadly, we did not progress any further.

We thank new Sponsors Volkswagen, at local level, who were eager to join us in this newly branded, very old and well known PGA supported fixture.

Fraser Coast Legends Classic

This Pro-Am format event is the most prestigious event conducted by our club in conjunction with the PGA that is held annually in July (20-21st 2019). It has attracted celebrity senior Australian Pro Golfers over the years like Wayne Grady, Peter Senior, Jack Newton, Rodger Davis, etc that make up a field of 70 plus senior Pro’s in this two-day event.

As with all Pro Am’s, registered golfers of all ages, including our own members and others from other regional clubs, eagerly await the opening times to grab a spot in the field alongside one of Australia’s leading Senior Pro Golfers.

Kerry Campbell Homes has been the major sponsor of this major event for many years and continues to support the club in assisting us to enable the event to be conducted.

Hervey Bay Mid Amateurs

This unique two-day event conducted by other associations with great success was adopted by HBGC in 2018 that was run in conjunction on the first day with the City of Hervey Bay Open (above). Also sponsored by Kerry Campbell Homes.

The major difference in the conditions of play for this Mid Am, is that it is played in three divisions decided by the competitors age. Lower Mid Am 30-44, Mid Mid Am 45-54, and Senior Mid Am over 55. All divisions regardless of Handicap.

This event is expected to grow in years to come and may possibly get to the stage where minimum handicap levels will apply to players wishing to compete.
