Congratulations to Shane Hunter and Brad Cox for taking out the 2018 SANDVIK Desert Classic with a gross score of 127 strokes for the weekend, just beating out Wade Hooper and Craig Nichols on 128. Congratulations to all the other winners on the weekend, and thanks to all who participated. A huge thank you must go to Clint and the SANDVIK team for not only their sponsorship, but their support and time that they put in to this event each year. A big thanks also to the Mums for coming out to enjoy Mothers Day on Sunday, the Woomera Golf Club – the course and meals were fantastic as always, the Roxby ladies for preparing the Sunday dinner, and to all the volunteers throughout the weekend which made the event successful.
Another year, another hugely successful SANDVIK Desert Classic has been completed. A huge thank you again to Clint Gow-Smith, Darren Male and the entire SANDVIK crew for sponsoring and supporting an amazing weekend, without your support it wouldn’t have been possible, and again must be thanked for donating proceeds of the chip-in competitions to the Roxby Kindy. Another thank you has to go the Woomera Golf Club for hosting on the Saturday, their small crew of volunteers had the Woomera course in tip-top shape, and their hospitality throughout the day and night with food and beverages was amazing, we are all looking forward to coming back next year. Another thanks to all the RDGC/SANDVIK volunteers helping Rene and Tori have the course in great condition for Sunday, and the food, beer cart and bar volunteers throughout the day on Sunday. To Wade Hooper for his promotion of the event and running the chip in competitions throughout the weekend, thanks and we hope you can continue to support the event in years to come. Another big thank you to the APEX Postie Bash crew for cooking up a much needed breakfast on Sunday morning. Last but not least, thanks to all the players who supported the event throughout the weekend, we hope you will all spread the word about this great event and hope to have even more teams next year!

RDGC Season Opening Day was a great success with hot conditions and a total of 15 teams. The season was opened by RDGC Co Captain Glen Mungur hitting the first ball of the day.
Many thanks go to the following:
- WorkPac for their continuous sponsorship
- The Green Keepers (Rene & Tori)
- The Roxby Downs Junior Basketball Association
- All of the volunteer’s representing the Golf Club & Course to a very high standard.
The Roxby Downs Junior Basketball Association did a great job with raffles, auctions, Hamburgers for lunch and helping with a bit of bar work during the day. The Basketball Association raised around $4000.00 on the day
Congratulations to all winners on the day.
