  • Function Room Upgrade – The Club was the thankful recipient of a Grant under the Stronger Communities Programme (Round 3) in order to update the aged Function Room that hadn’t been touched since the Clubhous was built in 1975. This project received funding from the Commonwealth Government. That project is now complete, with new paint, carpet, PA System, projector and screen alongside new LED lighting for energy efficiency (and the benefit of the Club’s ‘footprint’). We are extremely appreciative of both the Grant via Ross Hart MP’s office, as well as the volunteers and tradesmen that have worked so hard to complete the works. Heath, Leigh, Jason, Darren, Shane, John, Wayne, Dennis, Liam, Nick, Sue – the list goes on! 
  • 2018 Launceston Kitchen Centre Pro-Am – Perfect conditions greeted 35 Professional and 81 Amateur golfers from around the country on Sunday March 4th for the LKC Mowbray Pro-Am. Sydney’s Mitchell Brown took out the Pro title and Tassie’s richest purse in the process with a sharp 5-under round of 66. Local Members Terry Clark, Andrew Fraser and Darren Knight took out the teams competition with help from Pro’s Kevin Conlong and Chris Akers – winning a Taylormade M3 Driver each! 2nd place – and a Taylormade Spider Putter each – went to young locals Joel Champ, Adrian Weitjens and Wil Lockhart, with long time Club Sponsors Jason & Julie Digney alongside Andrew Pedder taking out 3rd place and a TM cart bag for their reward.

  • On Sunday October 29th, in windy but sunny conditions, MGC played host to the Go Green for Gastroparesis charity golf day, raising awareness for a little-known but devastating illness that has no known cure to date. Driven by member Dennis Turner and his family, 100 players turned out for a fun Ambrose event, that raised nearly $6,000 for the cause! Congratulations must go to Dennis, superintendent James Pyke and Graeme and Lorraine Ponting for their amazing round õf 5 pars and 13 birdies! A huge thank you to the players and sponsors on behalf of the Club and the Turners must be expressed.

Course Renovations

  • Pykey and the boys have been able to take a recent opportunity to re-build and level out the back of the Mens 10th tee-bed.
  • Huge thanks must also go to TasWater for assisting the golf club with extra supply to keep the main dam level high, allowing the course to be irrigated at a higher rate. The change in colour across the whole course in 2 short weeks is rich reward both for their community assistance and James’s hard work through the recent spell of hot weather to keep everything on track.
