HURRY – Less than one week remains for you to nominate to join the fun of the premier Veteran Golfers Carnival – the Wintersun Golf Carnival 2019 – from Monday 5th August to Tuesday 13th August 2019.

Nominations close on Friday 26th July 2019. So make your plans now to be in the Mackay-Whitsunday region in early August to play some of the best country golf courses in the state. 

With the first rounds being played in Proserpine, travellers also have the opportunity to spend a few days exploring the Whitsunday Coast and the Whitsunday Islands before heading to Mackay and exploring the region there, including the beautiful Pioneer Valley, the Eungella National Park and Finch Hatton Gorge.

You can visit the region’s tourism web sites for some ideas on what to do during your free time during the Carnival – click: and

The Carnival comprises two rounds at Proserpine, one round each at Sarina and Pioneer Valley, then the final two rounds at Mackay.  Each club’s events are “stand-alone” but the Wintersun Championships for both Men and Women are decided over 72 holes by combining results from Proserpine and Mackay.

At Proserpine and Mackay, men play Single Stroke for Gross and Nett trophies, while women play Stableford in both events.  Both men and women play Stableford at the Sarina and Pioneer Valley events. 

The easiest way to nominate is to use the web nomination form which is available on the Wintersun web site – just fill in the boxes, make your selections and click “Submit” to send your nomination to the Wintersun Committee. 

This web-based nomination option is preferred – but you also have the option of downloading a printable (pdf) form which can be completed and mailed or eMailed to the Tournament Director.
