Tin Can Bay Golf Club’s successful ‘Chicks with Sticks’ program has resulted in new female golfers with the skills to enjoy the game and play competitively and socially.

Teaching professional, Ellesha Michie, is holding group clinics at the club each Thursday afternoon over the next few months for anyone who missed this opportunity to learn or improve the game.

When you next visit the club you will notice new golf trophies taking pride of place in the foyer.  The Ladies Bronze Pennant Team won the final between the North and South Sunshine Coast Zone Teams. They competed against Bribie Island, winning five of the seven matches. The ladies are now looking forward to the chance of becoming district winners later in October.

The Annual Districts Golf Challenge between the Sunshine Coast and South Burnett District Men’s Golf and Sunshine Coast, and Burnett Women’s Golf vs the Wide Bay Golf Association will be played at the Tin Can Bay Country and Golf Club on Sunday July 16.

This event will host our best golfers in the area,  both men and ladies, and spectators will see the very best of golfers on stage in this prestige challenge match play event.

It would be great to see spectators (free entry) turn up to support our team in this event and sample the excellent food and drink on offer at the Tin Can Bay Country Club.
