“Nominations Closed! Given the tough times we’ve all experienced over the past few months in isolation and given that we have been notified by host clubs that all Junior Classics or Opens have been cancelled or postponed up until the Noosa Springs Junior Classic and Mt Coolum Junior Open on the 12th and 26th of July respectively (tbc). It gives us great pleasure to pass on the fantastic news that…………..

 

Under strict conditions, we are able to get back to some form of normality after the Governing bodies have reduced some of their Covid-19 conditions, which will enable us to get out on “The Invincibles Tour” where we look forward to catching up with everyone to enjoy each-others company.

 

But most importantly, the game we love, and what better place to get back into the swing of things, than contesting the opening round of The Invincibles 2020 Matchplay Championships, that will be hosted by the magnificently presented and very supportive Noosa Springs Golf and Spa Resort, Sunday the 21st of June from 8.00am.

 

Our Semi Finals and Finals will be contested, Sunday the 5th of July from 7.00am, proudly hosted by the immaculately presented, Twin Waters Golf Club.

 

Managers, Mark Brady (Noosa Springs) and Steve Hutchison (Twin Waters) have always been massive supporters of junior golf and The Invincibles Tour and are looking forward to hosting our Championship, but it all has to be contested under the strictest of conditions as we would all fully appreciate, both Mark and Steve said.

 

The Invincibles Tour, on behalf of their members and families would like to take this opportunity to thank both Noosa Springs and Twin Waters for their enormous generosity and support, particularly in these times when tee times and course availability are off a premium.

 

Given the downtime we’ve all experienced since the virus took over, we feel this is the perfect way to get back out on course to enjoy the challenges that only match-play can offer!

 

The draw has been assembled with the last known competition handicaps rounds via Golflink!
