FORMER Warwick resident Ian Free headed a group of 17 golfers from The Grove Sports Club for a social two days in Warwick at the weekend.

The group has been coming to Warwick for a decade.

Free said on Sunday the course was the best he had seen it.

He visits Warwick three to four times a year, and took the chance on Sunday morning to visit the graves of his parents Bill and Norma Free at the Warwick Cemetery.

Free sells windows and doors to the building industry in Brisbane and reckons he wouldn't mind retiring in his former home town, "but will probably stay in Brisbane".

Former Brisbane Brothers A-grade rugby league winger Pat Maguire was in the group.

"The hospitality is great, the weather great, we are having a ball," Maguire said.

They arrived in Warwick on Saturday in time for the races at Allman Park, played golf on Sunday and spent two nights at the Horse and Jockey.

Club member Don Hines said it was a different course altogether to what he first saw 10 years ago.

"It has improved immensely," he said.
