The Wintersun Legend.
For more than 20 years, The Wintersun Carnival has been offering veteran golfers holidaying in North Queensland the opportunity to experience the Mackay-Whitsunday region and join with local golfers to play the local courses of which we are justifiably proud.
This year, more than 200 veteran golfers have played on one or more of the four courses that form part of the Carnival, culminating in two rounds at Mackay Golf Club to finalise the 72 Hole Wintersun Championships.
