After receiving much needed rain up the East Coast Of Australia and throughout Queensland, it was a magnificent sight to see the Majestic Royal Queensland Golf Club and their facilities in superb condition “as you would expect given they had just hosted the Australian Amateur Championships” to host their Junior Open that saw Kai Komulainen (Emerald Lakes) and Poppy Harrington (Redland Bay) who produced brilliant rounds of……

69 and 73 respectively.

 

By winning the boys and girls divisions, both Kai and Poppy (Main photo & 1-2 below) qualified for The Invincibles IGA Sunshine Coast Junior Masters Championship that will be hosted by the very generous Peregian Golf Course, Twin Waters, Pelican Waters, and Noosa Springs Golf and Spa Resort during the last week of the September School holidays (Sunday the 27th to Wednesday the 30th of September).

 

Given that Poppy has already qualified (Ian Baker – Finch Junior Classic) means that, Shyla Singh (Southport) will receive an invitation.

 

The Invincibles Tour would like to congratulate Royal Queensland G.C, Andrew Vanstone (Golf Service Centre) and their team for hosting what was a great day out and for their very generous support, but most importantly for making everyone feel so welcome!

 

The Invincibles Course Cup was won by Tom Gaske (Pacificp-3-4) with 71 nett, that in turn qualified him for The Invincibles Gold Cup of Cups Championship that will be hosted by Pelican Waters Golf Club, Sunday the 29th of November, followed immediately by The Invincibles Annual Junior Presentation Dinner.

 

A very excited Tom was thrilled to qualify for the Gold Cup of Cups, and that was quite understandable, given that he had only re-joined as an Invincibles member prior to teeing off at the R Q Junior Open.

 

The same can’t be said for another one of our juniors who joined up after the game, and you guessed it, he came in with a winning score, an excellent 68!

 

As we all know, you must be a financial member prior to teeing off, so if you haven’t submitted your 2020 membership yet please do so prior to the Bribie Island Junior Open this coming Sunday, February 2nd to avoid the same disappointment…..
