Reknown for enjoying chasing the leader down, starting in the penultimate group suited Cam Smith in the final round of the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews on Sunday.
A steady front nine score of 2-under par set Cam up for a stunning 6-under back nine to win the Claret Jug from fast finishing American Cameron Young. Rory McIlroy’s rather sedate 1-under back nine resulted in 3rd place.
As most would know, 28 year old Cam Smith grew up playing golf at SBG Golf’s Wantima Country Club at Brendale. Cam has been a champion golfer in our region since he first came on the scene as a talented junior golfer. Cam won our District Junior Championship back to back in 2008 and 2009. Even at that time, Cam’s long-standing coach, Grant Field (Pelican Waters GC) declared that Cam would reach the top of the professional golf.
From all at SBG Golf, congratulations to Cam and your entire team including Des and your supportive family.
Unfortunately, the weather gods have conspired against this event yet again! Following the wet weather earlier in the year and again this past week, this event has been POSTPONED AGAIN to 3 October 2022. Players who have entered already will be contacted directly by the host club.
The new date will coincide with the Glasshouse Mountains Open Championship so a high quality field is expected.
The 2022 SBG Golf Men’s Senior and Mid-Amateur Open Championship returns to Bribie Island Golf Club after a successful event last year. Once again, massive prizes are up for grabs and an elite field of mature-age players are expected to enter from across South-East Queensland.

The AGIC has released a new report to assist all golfing bodies to identify areas in which to grow the game.
The Australian Golf Industry Council (AGIC) was established in 2006 as a group comprising all of the key bodies of the golf industry in Australia, designed to work together for the common good of the game and the industry.
The Council is made up of representatives from:
- Australian Sports Turf Managers Association
- Australian Sporting Goods Association
- Golf Australia
- Golf Management Australia
- Professional Golfers Association of Australia
- Public Golf Facilities Australia
- Society of Australian Golf Course Architects
- Women’s Professional Golfers Association Tour of Australasia
A key objective for AGIC is to make golf easier for all Australians to access, learn and play. Research was designed to strategically map the golf landscape, and identify key priorities for growing the game of golf.
2015 research sized the golfing landscape and looked at different themes influencing participation. The 2021 study and report is designed to track the sizing and themes, but build on this work to provide an updated and more comprehensive view of key priorities.
