PGA of Australia
WELCOME to the most highly anticipated season in Australian golf. With the South Pacific Open now won and run, the PGA Tour of Australasia season is back underway with a further eight events scheduled to take place before the end of the year. These Tour events, alongside The Presidents Cup, will combine to deliver the greatest ever season for Australian golf in recent years.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate all parties involved in the upcoming season with a particular mention of our event sponsors. Without such sponsors we would be unable to deliver such high quality fields and events so for their ongoing support we are very thankful.
This year we have secured a number of new partnerships for our PGA Tour of Australasia events including the recent announcement of Emirates as the Australian Open naming rights sponsor. Emirates has been a supporter of Australian golf for a number of years and with their increased commitment we are certain to see the Emirates Australian Open reach new heights in the coming years.
But what does this all mean for golf fans? The next few months will see PGA Tour events travel to a number of destinations outside of just Sydney and Melbourne including Perth, Newcastle, Wollongong, Christchurch and the Sunshine Coast. There has never been a better reason to get out and support Australian golf. Whether it’s getting along to one of the upcoming Tour events, watching the action unfold on one of our broadcasts or getting out and supporting your local club, now is the time to think golf.
Our next Tour event, the Brunel WA PGA Championship, kicks off at The Vines Golf and Country Club from October 20 with the John Hughes Geely/Nexus Risk Services WA Open to follow at Royal Fremantle the following week. Check out the schedule for all the upcoming events at www.pga.org.au
I hope you will all enjoy what will be a fantastic season for Australian golf.
