Australian Mid-Amateur Heads to Bribie
by Golf Australia
Queensland’s Bribie Island Golf Club will host the 2021 Australian Mid-Amateur from 10-12 November.
Following the cancellation of the event at Bribie in late 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Golf Australia is looking forward to bringing the event to the Moreton Bay Region later this year. The event is for men and women aged 30-54 years and played over 54-holes stroke play.
The national tournament provides an opportunity for players to contest a championship of the highest level and further engage in the game.
Therese Magdulski, Golf Australia’s General Manager Events & Operations, was pleased the event has received support from Moreton Bay Council.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to showcase the beautiful destination region of Bribie Island for the championship," said Magdulski.
“The valued support from the club and Moreton Bay Council is appreciated.”
Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Peter Flannery said the Australian Mid-Amateur was a great follow up to the successful Legends Tour event in July.
“Bribie Island is a stunning location for a golf event so the more opportunities we get to showcase our beautiful region the better!” he said.
“It’s great to see Bribie Island Golf Club getting the recognition it deserves as one of the great courses of South East Queensland with its rich history and culture.
“Whether you play off scratch or you do your best work in the clubhouse, I implore everyone to get down to the event and while you’re there explore what the beautiful Bribie Island has to offer.
“The water at Woorim Beach is warm all year round, we have some of the best fish and chips in state and you can’t miss the Pumicestone Passage with the view of the Glass House Mountains at sunset.
“And there’s plenty to see and do right across Moreton Bay Region with our beautiful hinterland, tracks and trails in our region’s west.”
Winners of the championship will receive a grant to contest the 2022 New Zealand Mid-Amateur Championship (travel restrictions permitting), and the leading available player will be chosen for the Golf Australia team to play against the Australian Defense Forces next March.
Bribie Island Golf Club is considered the “hidden treasure” of the south-east Queensland golf courses. Built on the rolling natural sand dunes of Bribie Island, the championship layout offers golfers of all levels an enjoyable test of skill.
The club is no stranger to hosting major events, having hosted the 2021 Australian Boys’ Amateur and the PGA Tour School in recent times.
