"Seniors Golf" is the biggest growth area in the game in recent years and Golf Queensland is continually attempting to provide more events for this group of golfers. Some of the key events for seniors include:

Walking Stick Challenge
The inaugural "Walking Stick Challenge" was played in conjunction with the 2005 Victorian Senior Amateur Championship and was well received with teams competing from Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. The event is now open to all States and Territories and rotates between Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales, being held in conjunction with the State's Senior Amateur Championship on a rotational basis.
Golf Queensland v ADFGA Match
In 2004, the Australian Defence Force Golf Association approached the former Queensland Golf Union about initiating an annual match between the Association's National Team and a team selected to represent the Queensland Golf Union. The Golf Queensland team consists of 12 players - a number of these representatives being senior golfers. The annual ADFGA versus Golf Queensland match has proven to be very successful with camaraderie amongst all players second to none.
Jack Brown Shield
