Thanks to the support and generosity of IGA and Metcash, The Invincibles Tour held their seventeenth Annual IGA Corporate Golf Day that was hosted by the magnificently presented Noosa Springs Golf and Spa Resort, where we were treated to a……….
Cracker of a day to run The Invincibles Annual fund raiser, and we don’t believe we could have asked for anymore, particularly after what we have all endured over the past twelve months. It gave us the perfect opportunity to let our hair down and have some fun, and it is fair to say that it didn’t take too much coaxing to get the party started!
Just driving down the driveway leading into the Noosa Springs Resort creates and atmosphere where you know the day is set up for something special and no one left disappointed.
On arrival at the registration desk everyone was welcomed by the ladies that make these days happen (Irene Lally) along with Marshan Miller, Di Broome and Ann Livingstone who did a brilliant job selling raffle tickets and helping co-ordinate the day.
Once all the formalities were out of the way, our guests meandered through to the Relish Bar dining area, where their head chef had everything set in place to make sure everyone had a mouth-watering meal prior to heading out on course to enjoy the day.
Roy Leisk (Metcash) Peter Zipf and Romeo Bordignon (IGA – hosts-p1-2-3 below) were thrilled to bits with the way the day ran and took great pleasure in presenting Tyler Quaill (Maroochy River) and Amy Hodgkins (Redcliffe) with their Encouragement Scholarships at presentations, to the delight of both Amy and Tyler’s mums who both got a little teary, as did the large group that stayed back to enjoy another beautiful meal and refreshments.

Both Tyler and Amy were awarded $1000 Awards by IGA to be used for travel and accommodation to a major event of their choosing with the aim of helping them gain invaluable experience on the big stage.
Amongst all the skulduggery, lies, and laughter that filtered through the groupings, we were treated a spectacular “Hole in One” that was achieved by a member of the winning group Steve Young (Noosa Meat Centre) with his trusty 6 iron into the 166m par 3 8th hole!
And it was that hole in one that made all the difference between winning and coming second given the final scores were, Steve Young Group (52) Irene Lally Team (52-3/8) and Peter Teazel squad on 53-1/2, pictured below.
An enormously happy and surprised Bruce Finlay (Maroochy River- pictured below) won the fantastic Callaway Raffle package worth approximately $4,445.00.
All up, the feedback we received was that everyone had a ball and really considered the day a great success, which is what we strived to achieve and it is great to hear that everyone appreciated the effort that was put in by not only Mark Brady (Manager) and his great team, but the organisers and volunteers alike.
We would like to pass on a big thanks to Callaway Australia (Michael Gawne) for their generous support and sponsorship of the day.
A special thanks to Nicola Hodgkins and Sharon Dryden who looked after the longest and straightest drives on 9, and Bob Miller for their enormous help and support.
The Invincibles Tour would like to thank Noosa Springs, Twin Waters, Pelican Waters, Mt Coolum, Headland, Royal Pines, Noosa, Caloundra, and Peregian Golf Courses for donating vouchers to be used as prizes and for Raffles.
They would also like to thank the organisations and companies for supplying product for our show bags, that once again were filled to overflowing with all sorts of goodies to the delight of everyone that took part in the day.
A big thanks to Cassie Porter, Justice Bosio, Amy Hodgkins, Sami Dryden, Shae Wools- Cobb, Ryley Martin, Alex and Caitlyn Wheatley and Tyler Quaill along with Frank Schmidt for your input and support on the day.
