Cast your mind back to 1992. The VP Commodore was the latest Holden on the road, Shane Warne made his Test debut for Australia, the West Coast Eagles became the first non-Victorian team to win the AFL Premiership, Paul Keating was the Prime Minister of Australia, and one and two-cent coins begin to be withdrawn from circulation.
It was the year that the Holden Scramble was born, paving the way for national amateur teams’ golf championships.
It’s fair to say a lot has changed over the past quarter of a century, the golf industry included, but one constant has been the ongoing development of Australia’s premier pro-am team’s event.
As the Holden Scramble enters its 25th Anniversary Year in 2016, it continues to bolster itself as Australia’s largest and most successful pro-amateur team’s event with participation averaging 37,000 annually, making it one of the most recognised brands in Australian sport.
The upcoming season will also see the One Millionth Participant grace the fairways. To mark this momentous achievement and thanks to Delta Air Lines the PGA is giving away an experience of a lifetime to this lucky player and their three teammates. Each player will each receive return flights to the United States, accommodation, and tickets to the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola on the PGA TOUR, the final event of the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoff.
The Holden Scramble is a fantastic opportunity for golfers across Australia to participate in the fun and excitement of an event at their local club. Teams that proceed through to the Regional or State Final will team up with their PGA Club Professional for the chance to qualify through to the Holden Scramble Championship Final on the Naturally Refreshing Sunshine Coast.
The Championship Final is the golfing experience of a lifetime, with four days of golf, social activities and the opportunity to play with a Tour Professional. In 2015, Rod Pampling, Ashley Hall, Dimi Papadatos and Daniel Popovic where just some of the Tour Professionals who joined those competing in the final round.
A new online system has been implemented into the Holden Scramble which is easy for participants to use that will streamline the entry process and increase the interaction participants have with each event.
Participants can join in the fun for $39.50 per person, which includes a Callaway Cap tee gift valued at $35.00, and a host of special offers from event partners including Holden’s $550 cashback when purchasing a brand new vehicle.
