Search is on for best Amateur Golf Pair
08 Sep 2012
Australia’s Auto Clubs have united to launch an exciting new, national amateur golf tournament which is unlike any other tournament in Australia.
Members of Australia’s state and territory Auto Clubs (RACV, NRMA, RACQ, RAA, RAC, RACT and AANT), will be offered the exclusive opportunity to enter a two-person team in one of 50 regional qualifying rounds spread across the country.
The winning team from each of the state and territory qualifying events to be played between October 2012 and January 2013, will progress to compete in the Auto Club Golf Championship final, to be held at the stunning RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast over two days from February 28 to March 1, 2013.
Not only will the 50 pairs of finalists win return flights to the Gold Coast and three nights’ accommodation, every event entrant will have the opportunity to win a bounty of prizes, including a chance to win a Suzuki Kizashi “Hole in One”.
Tournament Director John Harriss said this event will be the largest pair’s golf event staged in the Southern Hemisphere and is supported by major partners Thrifty, Suzuki, RACV Resorts and Club Assist.
“New Zealand Auto Club (AANZ) is also planning to participate and is looking to send as many as 10 pairs to do battle with the Aussies for the No.1 Australasian Amateur Golf Pair ‘bragging’ rights.”
The winners of the Auto Club Golf Championship final will earn the right to battle it out with the world’s best at the 2013 World Amateur Inter-Teams Golf Championship in Malaysia.
Auto Club Golf Championship entry is open to men and women auto club members 18 years and older with a current Golf Link handicap.
The Championship will be played as a two-ball, best-ball Stableford tournament. The exchange of score cards will ensure the integrity of the competition, a point Tournament Director John Harriss believes, will be embraced by the keen Amateur golfing community in Australia.
According to Kane Streat, head professional at Southern Golf Club, this is the best value amateur tournament in Australia with a one-off registration fee of $30.00 per person.
“Already there is huge excitement building amongst the many clubs and professionals who will be hosting the qualifying events around the country, and you can expect to see many well-known faces lining up to be crowned Australia’s best amateur golf pair.”
