2019 Riverside Open

Bunbury's Greg Golinski blitzed the 2019 Riverside Open with spectacular rounds of 70 and 68 to win by a country mile - or rather, a Tiger Woods-like 20 strokes - from brother Michael Golinski of Lake Karrinyup, whose 76 and 82 were still good enough to keep him ahead of the rest of the 79-man field. The result reversed last year's Riverside Open, when Michael shaded Greg by four shots. Left in the wake of the two brothers were Kevin Burton, Danny Cheng, Carl Carulli, Tim Buller and Dave Blurton, with gross scores of 161, 162, 163, 164 and 165 respectively. Greg Golinski also set the target in the nett competition with a total of 142, but as he was ineligible to win both competitions he had to make way for Collie's Fred Bronickis, who carded nett rounds of 73 and 70 to take out the prize with a nett 143, ahead of three other Collie members, Neil Motion, David Laird and Colin Giblett, with nett scores of 145, 146 and 146.

Hole in One

Vicki Graham, the club's best lady golfer, achieved something she has been trying to do for many years when she scored her first ever hole in one during the women's competition on Wednesday 13 March. Vicki's tee shot rolled into the hole on the par three 12th hole, alllowing her to match husband Trevor in the hole in one stakes.

Collie isn't just a great place to play golf.
It is a great place to live, work and invest, and a great place to visit.

 

Located between two major highways heading South from the metropolitan area, just 200km from Perth and 50km from the coast, Collie is often described as the "South West's best kept secret". Nestled in the Collie River Valley, with a beautiful river defining its name and character, Collie is so much more than many people envisage, and the town's residents enjoy an enviable lifestyle.

Collie is big enough to enjoy just about every facility you could require, while being small enough to get to know people. The town centre, shopping, hotels and restaurants are located within walking distance of two golf courses, tennis courts, bowling rinks, an Olympic size swimming pool, town library, beautiful parks, cricket and football grounds. Collie also boasts a senior high school, five primary schools, and a first class hospital. Motor racing fans are well catered for, with one of WA's best motor racing circuits, the Collie Motorplex, a short drive from town, a speedway located just minutes from the town centre, and at a slightly slower pace the town has one of Western Australia's most active vintage car clubs

 



The Collie-Donnybrook race has been held annually for almost a century

 

Soldiers Park


Soldiers Park, in the centre of Collie, is bordered by the river and home to geese, ducks and coots - as well as free gas barbecues, plenty of seating, and shady picnic spots. 
A little further from town is the stunning Wellington Dam and the spectacular return route through Honeymoon Pool. There are many camping spots below the dam and these are extremely popular at Easter. Stockton Lake, Glen Mervyn Dam and Black Diamond are also popular camping, watersports and picnic venues, while the adjacent Ferguson Valley boasts many wineries and breweries, and is a beautiful drive for an afternoon out from Collie.

Significant employers in the region are coal miners Griffin and Premier, Muja, Collie and Bluewater power stations, and Worsley Alumina. But increasingly, tourism is also making its contribution to the local economy, and our area is also developing a strong reputation for the production of an outstanding range of arts, crafts and culinary products.

In short, Collie has it all!
