ASEG-PESA WA: 32nd Annual Golf Classic: Joondalup Resort

Friday, December 6, 2019

ASEG-PESA 32nd Annual Golf Classic: Joondalup Resort Golf Course

The ASEG-PESA Annual Golf Classic is one of the most pleasant and well-attended oil and mineral industry golf tournaments held in Perth with recent years enjoying attendances of 100+ players.

This years tournament will be hosted at Joondalup Resort, on Friday 6th December 2019. The Joondalup Resort golf course, designed by the internationally renowned Robert Trent Jones Jr, presents a tough, uncompromising layout, featuring great variation in setting and style. The spectacular golf course in Perth sweeps across dense bushland, cuts through steep limestone quarries and skirts picturesque lakes, to present surprises and challenges at almost every turn. One minute you are playing an approach shot beneath a 30-metre limestone cliff, the next you are adapting to the fresh ocean breeze on an undulating links style fairway.

After the charity success from the 2018 Classic, ASEG-PESA has decided to partner again with our charity of choice, Parkerville Children and Youth Care. The charity is a 115-year-old non-for-profit organization, based here in WA. With 1/4 girls and 1/6 boys affected by child abuse and trauma by the age of 18, Parkerville has a huge role within our community; to raise awareness of child abuse, provide services for those in need and grow the network of support in providing a future for our WA children, young people, and families. As a proud supporter of the charity, we will run the day to raise as many funds as possible and are inviting your company to take part in it. There will be a silent auction, competitions, prizes, and raffle.


Teams of 4 will play ambrose rules, and mystery hole handicap weighting’s applied. The schedule for the day will be as follows:

8:30am: Coach departs Hay street across from Holiday Inn, Perth City
10:00am: Coach arrives at Joondalup Resort Golf Course

Friday, March 15, 2019

The Annual Student Pizza Night will be held on Friday March 15th, jointly with the Adelaide University Geological Society. Each year we hold this event at the University of Adelaide with the aim to promote the opportunities and benefits of studying geophysics to undergraduate students. We will have industry professionals giving talks on their careers along with pizza and drinks with a chance for industry professionals and students to network. We hope as many members as possible can make it to chat with the students and share their own experiences.

This year we will be joined by Dr Stephan Thiel from the Geological Survey of South Australia, and Bonnie Lodwick, from Santos. This represents a fantastic chance for students to hear about the breadth of opportunities that our industry can offer them and a great opportunity to network with industry and government geophysicists. The ASEG SA/NT Branch is very thankful for Stephan and Bonnie for agreeing to join us.

Please note that due to the Fringe the Mawson Building will be locked. Some members of ASEG will remain around the main entrance to let participants in. After the pizza and talks there will be ample opportunity for networking. Then there is the opportunity to continue networking a little more informally, and watch some live music at the RCC Fringe area (free entry before 9 pm) just outside the Mawson Building. After dark, 'Dusk till Dawn' transforms the grounds of RCC Fringe into a playground of music, art and light, with over 120 artists and musicians performing over five weekends.
