DRUMMOND GOLF FYSHWICK
What do Augusta National and the Gold Creek Country Club in Canberra have in common? At Easter they both hand out green jackets.
So it was that John Hewitt joined Bubba Watson as a green jacket owner when Drummond Golf Fyshwick held its inaugural Masters Monday Par 3 Challenge at Gold Creek.
John Hewitt became the first recipient of the Drummond Golf Masters Green Jacket with a nett score of 43. Gold Creek members Gary Urquhart and Sonia Widdowson took out the best scratch and women’s events.

Drummond Golf Fyshwick would like to thank everyone involved in making the day happen, especially John Hair and his pro-shop team for their professional running of the event.
Thanks also to the course superintendent Scott Harris and team for setting up the course and having it picture perfect. If you haven’t had a chance recently, do yourself a favour and get out to Gold Creek Country Club for a hit. You won’t walk away disappointed.
DRUMMOND GOLF TOWNSVILLE
When Bowen, a beautiful little town two hours south of Townsville, had its Opening Day for the 2012 golf season, the competition nearly didn’t go ahead after a large downpour the night before.

Drummond Golf Maroochydore
Matthew recently won the Greg Norman Foundation Pelican Waters Two Day Junior Classic and followed up by finishing second in the Sunshine Coast Open Amateur Championship. He won the junior section of that event by six shots with rounds of 74-69. The Maroochydore store sponsors the Invincibles, the junior golf program of which Matthew is a part, and later in the year he will be doing work experience in the store, furthering his love of the game and his dreams of pursuing a professional career.
"I am a dedicated junior golfer with an ambition to follow in the footsteps of Jason Day and Adam Scott, Greg Norman and many others who both started and developed their careers here on the Coast," he wrote in a letter of thanks after winning the Pelican Waters event.
"The list is endless when I sit and think of what is invested in my development as a golfer. My family have been my major sponsor all the way, and do their best to put me on the right path."
