Winter is a very popular tourist time on the Granite Belt, with many flocking to the area to enjoy warm fires, award winning wines and amazing local food. Please keep this in mind and pack accordingly, it WILL be cold in the sunshine state.
The main event will be held on the 28th and 29th of July, but participants are welcome to arrive at anytime in the week leading up to the event, with camping on site ($10 a site). We will be adding additional facilities to make sure everyone is comfortable and happy in tent city. But don’t feel restricted to tents, campervans, buses, caravans etc can all be accommodated, except for power.
Short showers will be scheduled in the house (we have 2) each morning and evening.
As Granite Mountain is a full time course, and does not require any event OBs/Mandos to be marked, it will be available for practice right up to the event day, along with the mini 9 hole warm up course.
The current schedule is…
First official day of the event, we expect many people to arrive throughout the day to set up tents, be out practicing and having fun. This will be a day of course prep as well, so don’t be surprised to find a member of the crew out mowing, whipper snipping or using a blower.
Sign in will be available from 3pm to 5pm in the shop.
Dinner Friday night will be a welcome byo BBQ on the deck.
First day of competition will consist of 2 rounds of 18 on Granite Mountain with a shot gun start. Lunch will be provided in between rounds and water stations throughout the course. Those waking up on site can utilize McDonald’s down the road (3 minutes drive) or another cafe in town for an early breakfast, or the onsite BBQ in camp to cook up some breakfast. Coffee and Tea will be provided on the deck.
There will be a bonfire in the camping area Saturday night, with free pizzas and alcohol for sale (with a liquor permit til Midnight), more to come on that. We will also have the mini course lit up for glow golf.
The day will start of with breakfast provided on the deck with coffee and tea. There will be one round of 18, before lunch is provided. During lunch, we will award the prizes for all divisions outside of Open, to allow people the opportunity to receive their trophies/prizes and then choose to watch the final 9 OR get home before dark.
