Golf club tees up its 100th

IF ISIS Golf Club players from 100 years ago could see the course today, chances are they would be pretty impressed.

From first teeing off on a horse paddock on North Isis Rd, to being crowned the best country course in Queensland in the 1930s, the green has witnessed some great, and perhaps not so great, golfing rounds.

President Rod Wagner said the club was gearing up to host its 100th anniversary celebrations this weekend.

"The Isis Golf Club has a rich history and the current committee is looking for as many current and former players to join in the celebrations to mark 100 years of golfing in the Isis district," he said.

"It's something you probably won't ever see in a lifetime. We're going to try to do a few things to celebrate it."

Several dignitaries will attend the weekend events, including Golf Queensland president Tom Crothers, several members from the Wide Bay District Men's Golf Association including president Dave Buraston and Women's District Association president Judith Keil.

The club's newest life member, Peter Hrelja has been afforded the honour of the traditional opening drive down the first fairway, signifying the start of the new season.

Old members are also set to return and Mr Wagner said they were looking forward to the celebrations.

"They want to come back and catch up with some of their friends who stayed here and have a hit on the course," he said.
