Central Queensland developers say a visit to the Capricorn Coast may be just what Tiger Woods needs to overcome his recent troubles.
Chris and Rita Dadson have approached the golfer to open a new golf course at Zilzie near Rockhampton.
She says Woods has played on an artificial surface similar to the one on the Capricorn Coast.
“His curiosity might be sparked enough to come along,” she said.
“We live in probably the best part of Queensland to be able to offer him a fantastic holiday here.
“And he probably is used to going to places where there’s lots of hype and it’s very busy.
“I think he might actually enjoy coming here and having a nice relaxed holiday with his family.”
Chris Dadson says he would be an entertaining host for Tiger Woods.
“We can put nice big boats in the bay for him, put a helicopter at his disposal, you know game fishing,” he said.
Tourism group says invitation good news
Mary Carroll from Capricorn Tourism says a visit by Tiger Woods would be a real boost to central Queensland.
“Anyone famous in the world of golf or any other sport or what ever their profession might be,” she said.
“Even the publicity that this area has received just in this invitation is all over the country, so if we could get anyone with a name to this area, it’s all good for tourism, it’s all good for promoting the region, it’s all good for putting us on the map.”
