FROM WYNNUM GOLF CLUB
Wynnum Golf Club in Brisbane’s stunning bayside will soon be known for more than being an 18-hole championship course in one of the best locations in the state. This November, the club will host the world record attempt by Brisbane businessman, philanthropist and Ronald McDonald House Charities South East Queensland (RMHC SEQ) supporter Mick McLoughlin to play 2001 golf holes in seven days (that’s 286 holes or 16 rounds per day) and raise $250,000 for the charity.
After Covid-19 brought the usual fundraising efforts of RMHC SEQ to a halt, Board member and huge supporter Mick McLoughlin was inspired to fill the coffers by pushing himself – and from November 21 to 27 this year at Wynnum Golf Club (WGC), this is exactly what he’ll do.
After almost 12 months of training and preparation, he will take a tilt at the world record of playing the greatest number of golf holes in seven days (cart assisted).
“The Club Board and membership are delighted to support Mick and his team in this bold and entertaining event, and in support of such a worthy cause and charity,” said WGC Club President Laurie Hoppner. “Good luck and good golfing Mick!”
