Countdown to Tee-Off for Outback Qld Masters
MEDIA RELEASE FOR OUTBACK QLD MEDIA
COUNTDOWN TO TEE-OFF FOR AUSTRALIA’S MOST REMOTE GOLF SERIES
WITH EXCLUSIVE LOCAL DEAL FOR OUTBACK QLD RESIDENTS
In an Australian first, the inaugural Outback Queensland Masters tees off in just over three weeks in the countdown to an epic event being staged across six Outback Queensland locations from 17 June to 28 July 2019, culminating in Mount Isa with a life changing opportunity – the $1million dollar hole-in-one!
This is Australia’s most remote golf tournament spanning 1,400km (that’s the entire length of Great Britain!) including 6 locations - Roma, Charleville, Longreach, Winton, Boulia and onto Mount Isa.
“The Outback Queensland Masters concept is presented by Golf Australia and partnered by Tourism & Events Queensland and the PGA”, explains Golf Australia’s Queensland Manager, Luke Bates. “This initiative is to encourage visitors to spread the economic benefit to as much of the region as possible, while experience some incredibly unique locations and golf courses”.
How does it work?
First things first, the Outback Queensland Masters is a progressive golf tournament.
To be able to take the drive at the $1million dollar hole-in-one in Mount Isa, you’ll need to play at least two other courses in the outback first. To qualify, tee off at Roma, Charleville, Longreach, Winton or Boulia first.
“If you’re in it to win it, we’d recommend purchasing a Million Dollar Player Pass which includes access to two event locations of your choice, and the $1million dollar hole-in-one in Mount Isa,” explains Golf Australia’s Queensland Manager, Luke Bates, “or you can just enjoy hitting off or spectating at one of the six locations with an Outback Players or Outback Spectators pass, which is a great way to experience the event.”
What does a pass get you?
Your pass covers all your green fees, 18 holes at each location (9 holes each day), breakfast, lunch and an evening dinner under the stars.
This is not for the pros?
You don’t have to be Tiger Woods to tackle this tournament. The Outback Queensland Masters is a competition for the amateur golfer as well as first timers and social golfers.
If your style is more Happy Gilmore, you can still enter the competition and go in the running for the big prize.
“We’ll also be encouraging juniors to participate, with special clinics with a golf pro at each location” said Luke Bates.
What if you just want to watch?
If teeing off on the outback ‘green’ isn’t for you, you can still experience the Outback Queensland Masters without even having to take a swing.
Spectators can join in on the country hospitality and live entertainment at each location with a Spectator Pass.
