Ipswich Council supports Isuzu Qld Open
04 Mar 2013
Golf Queensland today announced the Ipswich City Council had confirmed its support for the 2013 Isuzu Queensland Open.
The State-based championship will be played from 22 to 25 August 2013 hosted at the Brookwater Golf and Country Club. Golf Queensland chair Peter Castrisos said it was paramount to the success of the championship to gain the support of the Ipswich City Council through a Partner Sponsorship commitment.
“The Ipswich region is growing rapidly and we are thrilled the City Council has seen value in bringing events like the Isuzu Queensland Open to the area,” Mr Castrisos said. "The Queensland Open will give a fantastic opportunity for the Ipswich community to witness some top-level golf. “There will also be loads of opportunities for the local community to experience the sport through golf clinics and demonstrations at schools and shopping centres.”
“We look forward to working alongside the Ipswich City Council and the local community in the coming months and years,” Mr Castrisos said.
Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale said council was taking a leadership role by supporting major sporting events in the city. "The Queensland Open raises the profile of Ipswich as a sporting city and showcases the first-class facilities available for visitors and residents. "A major tournament such as this also provides an economic boost by attracting crowds to the fairways. “We also hope many will choose to book accommodation in Ipswich,” Cr Pisasale said.
A pre-qualifying round will also be hosted locally at the Ipswich Golf Club.
A number of fantastic sponsorship opportunities over varied levels are still available for organisations interested in being involved with this prestigious event. For a complete sponsorship prospectus please contact Luke Bates at Golf Queensland office on 07 3252 8155.
