Raiders, Dolphins & the River Maroochy – it’s a Sunny Coast Spectacular

MARCH 9-11, 2023

Canberra Raiders take on new chums Redcliffe Dolphins in Round Two of the National Rugby League, and it would be remiss if a large contingent of Raiders fans didn’t mark the occasion by tearing it up on the local links (if not dance floor of Redcliffe Leagues).

Friday 9 March

On arrival at Sunshine Coast Airport, Maroochydore, we’ll meet our mini-bus and travel 10 minutes up the road to play the Coolum Resort Clive Palmer apparently hasn’t totally fisted, even if he’s got dinosaurs dotted around the course. Word is: Coolum’s back. And pure.

After the round we’ll head back to our digs at Novotel Twin Waters, where we’ll swim and eat and have a few beers, and then eat again, in the way of these things. Because, well, look at it.

Saturday 10 March

After a swim in the pool and breakfast we’ll meet by the mini-bus for 7:30am ahead of a very short trip to Twin Waters GC. Then we’ll tee off for approx 8:30am, finish the round, have a little lunch, get back in the mini-bus, head back to Twin Waters, get cleaned up, put the lime green face paint on, put a few beers on the bus, then head one hour and seven minutes down the road to Redcliffe. We’ll be there for about 4pm ahead of 5:30pm kick-off.

After the match massive win we could enjoy a celebratory dinner in the club followed by pub crawl home to Maroochydore.

Sunday 11 March

After another swim and another sumptuous breakfast we’ll clean up, pack-up, check-out and board the bus for the short trip to the excellent Maroochy River GC.

After the round we’ll have a late lunch, few brews and board the bus for the short trip to later flights at Sunshine Coast Airport.
