With its central location on the Sunshine Coast, beautiful open fairways, stunning views of Mount Coolum and popular Mini Golf Course, it’s not surprising that Maroochy River Golf Club has won a swag of awards over the past few years.
It’s the home club of Living Choice Twin Waters residents, Janice Olley and Marie Christensen, who approached Living Choice some years ago to sponsor the annual Maroochy River Ladies’ Open Day. Given the support that Janice and Marie give at marketing and village events, Living Choice had no hesitation in saying “yes”.
The 2022 Open Day was held in fine weather on 16th September and attracted 120 golfers. Apart from the nearby Sunshine Coast Golf Clubs, there were visitors from Wantima, Ballarat, Redcliffe, Sarina, Wynnum, Keperra, Nudgee, Emerald Lakes, Oxley, Royal Auckland Golf Club and The Grange Golf Club.
At the prizegiving, Women’s Captain, Lyn Black, thanked Living Choice for its “generous sponsorship” as well as her many helpers for their excellent organisation of the event.
Although Janice and Marie said they “did not play well”, they enjoyed the day and were given the pleasant task of drawing the name of the winner of the luxury Living Choice hamper. Helen Wright of Maroochydore was the delighted winner, saying, “When I saw the hamper before I teed off, I said I would not care if I did not play well – I just wanted to win the hamper!”
Congratulations to the golf winners.
