28 YEARS STRONG
The South East Queensland District Golf Association was established on the 16th February 1994. The inaugural General Meeting was held at Gold Coast Burleigh Golf Club on Sunday 27th February, 1994, in conjunction with the Gold Coast District Golf Association Annual General Meeting. The Association was formed originally to take pressure off the Brisbane and Gold Coast District Associations, who had too many Member Golf Clubs. The Association encompassed an area in the middle of both of the other Districts. This now meant that if you looked at a map, you would see north to south: Brisbane District Golf Association; South East Queensland District Golf Association & Gold Coast District Golf Association. The new Association became incorporated and then went about establishing a structure of participation within the District. The first program introduced was the establishment of District Championships. This was followed by the introduction of a Pennant competition season.
The inaugural Executive Committee formed comprised of:
President Mr. Graeme Filippe (Kooralbyn)
Vice President Mr. Peter Clark (Carbrook)
Committee Mr. Jeff Herd (Redland Bay), Mr. Tony Carlyon (Riverlakes), Mr. Phil Menger (Logan)
Secretary Mr. Ross McCloud (Redland Bay)
In 1994 the membership consisted of 4397 members. 480 were members of the Pacific Springs Golf Club, which has since closed and is now part of the new Gold Coast Highway. In 1996, there was a change with Mr. John Ford (Windaroo) as President & Mr. E.C. (Ted) Coker as Secretary. During these formulative years, the motto of ‘Pride & Passion’ became the standard for the future.
To this day the South East Queensland District Golf Association has grown in stature and increased in participating membership. Today there is District competition and training for all members to enjoy, no matter what age or level of golf.
