The Invincibles Re-Direct Their Vision:

The Invincibles Committee appreciate that it came as a total shock to the one hundred and forty odd guests seated in the room at their Annual Presentation Dinner, hosted by the Noosa Springs Golf & Spa Resort in November 2023, when they advised that the Invincibles would not be accepting memberships heading into 2023. Graeme Miller announced that the Tour, as we know it, would be going into retirement.

Graeme mentioned that it had been an emotional time for his wife Marshan, Frank Schmidt and, of course, himself and everyone associated with The Tour. And he assured everybody it had not been a decision taken lightly.

Graeme indicated that The Invincibles Committee had had discussions with Golf Australia and PGA professionals.  They held forums and sought to find somebody or some group to take over.

That was when Eric King and Graeme Finn (SBG) and Graeme Miller got together, along with Frank Schmidt, to see if there was a way to create a positive and sustainable path forward that would allow The Invincibles legacy to prosper moving forward.

After a number of fruitful meetings, it was agreed that The Invincibles would put their trust and support behind the Sunshine Coast, Burnett, and Glasshouse Associations (SBG) with the aim of bringing Junior Golf under the one banner which The Invincibles believe will deliver the best possible outcome for junior golf in our region and beyond.

Graeme advised that the retiring Invincibles Tour would be presenting SBG with their Junior Masters, Gold Cup, and Brett Martell Inter-Club Team Shield along with The Most Supportive Club trophies with the aim of honouring those that have had their names engraved on the trophies over the past two decades.

As mentioned at the dinner, The Invincibles would be presenting scholarships to worthy juniors, not juniors that are already supported by Golf Australia, but those juniors that reflected The Invincibles mantra, of Daring to Dream and striving to become the best possible golfers and young men and women that they can be.

We are proud and thrilled to advise that the first recipient of The Invincibles Scholarships was Ellandi Findlay (Maroochy River) who The Invincibles Committee believe epitomises these qualities.

It is important to note that Frank and Graeme will be visiting SBG Junior Tour events with the intent of presenting further scholarships to worthy recipients, so it is important that you throw your support behind the SBG and their events. Who knows, you could be the next recipient of one of these Scholarships?
