Brett replaces Castrisos as Golf Qld Chair

Golf Queensland Chair Peter Castrisos has stepped down from the Board of Golf Queensland after serving nine years’ as a Director of the State association.

The move came following his successful election onto the Board of Golf Australia. Following Peter’s resignation, the Board of Golf Queensland voted David Brett as Chair.

David is a member of the Redland Bay Golf Club and Head of Corporate and Corporate Property Qld at the National Australia Bank Limited. He has been a member of the Golf Queensland Board since 2012.

Peter Castrisos has played a key role in the development of Golf Queensland since having been part of the inaugural Board established in 2007.

In his first official business as Chair, David paid tribute to Peter’s work for the industry and organisation.

“Peter has contributed countless hours of his time and expertise to the Queensland golf industry,” Mr Brett said.

“During his time with Golf Queensland, and particularly as Chair, he has been a strong advocate for bringing the Queensland golf industry together through reinforcing and cementing our relationships with key stakeholders including Districts and Clubs.”

“Further to this, he enhanced Golf Queensland’s services and operations through new initiatives such as the Club Support and Development Program,” Mr Brett continued.

“And significantly, he was the driving force behind the re-establishment of the Queensland Open tournament after a five year absence from the Queensland golfing calendar.”

“On behalf of the Board and staff of Golf Queensland I would like to thank Peter for his support and wish him the best in his new role at Golf Australia.”

Peter joins the Golf Australia Board after also serving as a delegate for Golf Queensland for the past five years.
