If you’re in Queensland on holidays or a local that loves their golf, beaches, restaurants or just relaxing with friends, then you really can’t go past the beautifully presented and friendly hospitality that Maroochy River Golf Club and what the Sunshine Coast has to offer.
The Maroochy River Golf Club is situated in Bli Bli, a casual five minute drive from the Sunshine Coast Airport.
As is the case with all Sunshine Coast Courses, Maroochy River is part of the gateway to the beautiful, world-renowned Sunshine Coast – Queensland, where you have everything on offer, from the Australian Zoo in the Glass House Mountains, to the hinterland on the Great Dividing Range, Underwater World, Eumundi Markets, that boasts some of the world’s best beaches in Mooloolaba, Alexandra Headland through to Maroochydore, Coolum, and the world-renowned Noosa beaches.
The Invincibles Tour on behalf of their members and junior golfers throughout South East Queensland, would like to pass on their thanks and appreciation to Charlie McGill (Secretary Manager) and the great team at their beautifully presented Golf Club.
The Tour would also like to pass on their thanks and appreciation to the great team in the Pro Shop, their bar staff, caterers, and ground staff for presenting their course and facilities in magnificent condition, but most importantly, for making everyone feel so welcome.
If you haven’t visited the beautifully presented Maroochy River Golf Club (Queensland - Australia) or enjoyed a round of golf on their challenging par 72 links layout, that's situated a comfortable fifty-five-minute drive North of Brisbane, then you are really missing out on one of Queensland’s and the Sunshine Coasts newest and most enjoyable experiences.

Yes, you guest it! On what was a another picture perfect day to be outdoors, where, a great squad of our South East Queensland’s finest junior golfers took up the challenge to contest the Maroochy River Golf Clubs Junior Open, who did everything in their power to create a fantastic atmosphere, so the fathers wouldn’t feel left out on “Fathers-Day” and at the same time had their course and facilities set up magnificently to host their Junior Open. Where Yevin……………
Samararatne (Windaroo Lakes) put in a fantastic performance to finish with a magnificent three under par 69, that could have been even better if his approach to 10 “for eagle” had of dropped after coming agonisingly close (p4 below – supplied by Ken Speare).
Baxter Smith (Bribie Island) put in a magnificent effort to finish runner-up with and excellent two under par 70. Poppy Harrington (Redland Bay) put in a fantastic performance of her own to win the girls division with 74, one shot clear of Keely Purdey (Royal Queensland) on 75.
Wilson Foster (Mt Coolum) wound up his junior career with a win in the 17 and under boy’s nett division with 69.

Points for Round 11 were as follows: Maroochy River earned the four points for winning, and Windaroo Lakes earning two points for second, with Noosa Springs coming in third to earn one point!!!
Highlights included: The spirit in which everyone played, Phoenix Gaulke’s tee shot into 8 to set up his par, Juhi Rampersad’s birdie on 5, Montgomery Stapleton’s brilliant run of birdies through 5,6,7, Will Martell’s and Jordan Speare’s fantastic approaches to the 3rd, Yevin Samararatne’s incredible approach to 10 and Jordan Rooke's 50ft putt on 8 for birdie, which were just a few of the many highlights during the championship.
Another Major Highlight; was witnessing everyone that had won an award, stay back for presentations.
To witness all trophy winners, accept their awards was unprecedented and goes a long way towards showing the organisers and sponsors that they are appreciated and not taken for granted!
The Tour would like to thank those that take the time to pass on highlights that happen during our junior events, as we feel it adds to the day and it’s nice to acknowledge great performances.
The Invincibles Tour would also like to thank and make special mention of Callaway Australia and Drummond Golf Maroochydore for very generously supporting The Invincibles Tour on the day. Please keep your eye on The Invincibles website “Notice Board” for any upcoming events!!
