Wide Bay Spring Carnival
The Wide Bay Spring Carnival is the premier annual Veteran's carnival in the Wide Bay District.
The Carnival is currently sponsored by Wide Bay Water.
The Carnival offers a total of nine games of golf over 14 days played on five Wide Bay courses in late August early September each year. All nine games are played as individual events. Players may enter in either the Carnival Championship (six games or more) or play a lesser number of games as a Non Championship player.
The Carnival may only be entered by using the Spring Carnival Entry Form.
The Carnival Championship
To participate in the Carnival Champonship and to be eligible for Championship prizes a player must complete a minimum of six rounds of golf at four different courses and pay both the game fee ($20) and the Championship fee ($5) giving a total of $25 per game. Of these, it is a requirement of our sponsor that at least one game be played at Hervey Bay and one at Maryborough.
Non Championship Players
Alternatively players may nominate for individual events in which case they will pay only the game fee ($20) for that event and not the Championship fee. They will not be eligible for Championship prizes but will be eligible for prizes given by clubs for that day's event. Players may enter individual events by using the Spring Carnival Entry Form.
After the Carnival Closing Date participating clubs may fill any remaining vacancies in their fields with local players. Clubs will
provide a separate Entry Form for these players. The fee for local players is $20 per game.
Players in the Spring Carnival will take precedence in the Draw for all events.
