Kemp the face of the Great Lakes

Inside Golf - - Industry News -

PRO­FES­SIONAL golfer Sarah Kemp is the new in­ter­na­tional face of the Great Lakes, NSW. Great Lakes Tourism, Forster Tun­curry Golf Club and the in­ter­na­tional golf­ing champ have joined forces to showcase the Great Lakes re­gion on the in­ter­na­tional stage. Golf in the Great Lakes al­ready at­tracts over 20,000 vis­i­tors a year and this part­ner­ship aims to grow these num­bers. The union seeks to utilise Sarah’s lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure to en­tice vis­i­tors.

Sarah Kemp, whose family moved to Forster Tun­curry some 10 years ago called the re­gion home un­til be­com­ing a pro­fes­sional golfer and tak­ing her ca­reer on the road. Whilst Sarah’s ca­reer is still young, she is show­cas­ing her tal­ents here and on the im­pres­sive LPGA tour in Amer­ica and the pres­ti­gious LET tour of Europe. Sarah will wear Great Lakes and Forster Tun­curry Golf club brand­ing on her at­tire wher­ever she com­petes.

As part of the agree­ment Kemp will be a Great Lakes Re­gion Am­bas­sador and is now of­fi­cially the Forster Tun­curry Golf Club Tour­ing Pro­fes­sional. The ven­ture aims to use an ex­cit­ing mix of tra­di­tional mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions along with an ag­gres­sive so­cial me­dia pro­gram.

“I am so pleased to be in­volved in the Great Lakes com­mu­nity,” Sarah said. “I love the golf cour­ses nat­u­rally; Tun­curry is one of my all time favourites.”

Doug Holmes, pres­i­dent of Forster Tun­curry Golf Club is also cur­rently in ne­go­ti­a­tions with the Aus­tralian Ladies Pro­fes­sional Golf As­so­ci­a­tion around host­ing a Ladies Pro-Am event at Tun­curry Golf Club later this year.
