2018 Schweppes City of Brisbane Pro Am
The 2018 Schweppes City of Brisbane Pro Am at Victoria Park attracted a strong field this year with amateurs and professionals from across South East Queensland and beyond all competing for one of the fantastic prizes provided by our generous sponsors. The course was looking better than ever and despite the tough windy conditions there were some low scoring amateurs and professionals to make the day hotly contested.
Schweppes City of Brisbane Pro Am Champions
Golf professionals Dale Brandt-Richards & Brett Rankin found themselves at the top tied at 8 under to take out this year’s Schweppes City of Brisbane Pro Am at Victoria Park on Tuesday 7 August.

In the amateur morning field, Matt Lake was the outright winner with a solid 40 points and also a hole in one on the 17th hole – his first shot of the day! No hole in one’s in the afternoon field, but Jordy McGary of just 14 years of age took out the amateur field with a fantastic score of 44 points.
There were plenty of delicious on-course offerings provided by our sponsors including Mr & Mrs G Riverbar with their famous duck pies, Schweppes refresh stations and Victoria Park’s market cart stall with fresh fruit, lolly buffet, Maleny Dairies ice cream and dutch pancakes.

Longest Drive Competition
The competition continued off the course with our Peroni Longest Drive Competition taking place from the Marquee Deck. Long Drive World Champions kept the crowd entertained with Karl Peters absolutely cracking one 344 metres! Next up were the professional players from the pro-am, aiming to be the longest AND most accurate with their drive. Christopher Wood prevailed as the winner with a 274 metre drive within a 10 metre goal post.
