Local Triumph and Outback Spirit Shines in Winton

Dinner Under the Stars

The Outback Queensland Masters teed off in the iconic ‘Way Out West’ town of Winton for its third stop in the 2024 golf series at the Winton Golf Club on the 29th and 30th July 2024.

Local knowledge proved an advantage, with Winton local Racheal Lenton of Winton Golf Club claiming the third Women’s Orange Jacket of the series, with a total winning score of 37 points. North Rockhampton Golf Club’s Garry Meek claimed his second Orange Jacket of the 2024 series with a score totalling 38 points, after winning the first weekend in Birdsville.

The outback local community spirit shined in Winton over the weekend when the Haystack Mountain Hermits arrived ahead of their performance at the event’s Dinner Under the Stars without their instruments in tow and only the clothes on their backs. As the saying goes, ‘The show must go on!’. With the help of the Longreach Town Band, and Winton locals Robyn Stephens and Malcolm Searle, the band were provided two guitars, a piano accordion and a bass guitar to ensure they made it on stage to charm the socks off the outback golfing adventurers.

Twenty-one pint-sized golfers in the making joined the free Junior Golf Clinics with PGA Pro Darren Weatherall, having an absolute ball over two mornings of school holiday fun.

“It is a real testament to the local golf club where you can really see it in the enthusiasm for golf in the kids in this town,” explains Darren.

Over 980 golfing enthusiasts travelling from as far as Tasmania and Western Australia have joined the 1,600km outback golf journey. The event now begins its journey into the second half of the series with players now hitting the road to Barcaldine, before making their way to Charleville and Quilpie for the finale with a Million-Dollar Hole-In-One bounty.

Golf Australia Events General Manager, “The event is presented by Golf Australia, and we would especially like to thank our Strategic Partner Tourism and Events Queensland and Birdie Spirit Partners PGA of Australia, Rex Airlines and BCL Production Services.
