Funding boost for Quilpie Golf Open

May 27, 2022

In a boost to local sport and the regional economy, Quilpie Shire Council has been awarded $10,000 for the Quilpie Golf Open.

Member for Maranoa David Littleproud said the funding, under Tranche 4 of the Regional Sport Events Fund, would support regional sport while also helping to boost local economies by attracting more visitors to regional areas to attend sporting events.

“The Quilpie Golf Open is a great example of bringing communities together and driving visitation with local golfers, including amateurs, lining up with golfers from across Queensland, South Australia, New South Wales and the Northern Territory,” Mr Littleproud said.

“Sport helps bring together communities across Maranoa and we are committed to helping people reconnect and celebrate through sport.

“We’ve seen applications for events range from ‘come and try days’ to larger events such as state sporting championships that will engage the broader community and have flow on effects for local businesses,” Mr Littleproud said.
