Suzuki aces in Auto Club Golf Champs

Tournament organizers have been overwhelmed by the enthusiastic support of Australia's newest Amateur Golf Tournament, the Auto Club Golf Championship, with many pairs lining up to play in multiple events to increase their chance of making the Championship Final on the Gold Coast.

"Once they play in a regional event and realize just how good the opportunity to win a trip to the Championship Final is, many pairs are fired up to try again and again increasing their odds of securing a trip to the magnificent RACV Royal Pines Resort in February" - Assistant Tournament Director PGA Professional, Hayley Hunt

But it's not just the "Winning Pair's" who get the glory. The 10th qualifying event at Victor Harbor in South Australia was recently, home to the 1st Auto Club Golf Championship Suzuki Kizashi Hole in One! Victor Harbor local Nelson Depledge scored the ACE on 14th hole at Victor Harbor Golf Club RAA Auto Club Golf Championship event. The lucky player has also won a trip to the Championship Final to compete in the Suzuki Shootout to win the sensational Kizashi valued at over $40,000.00.

If he is the only hole in one winner over the 45 Australian events and 4 New Zealand events then he will be presented with the car at the Championship Final at RACV Royal Pines Resort. If there are more ACE's achieved over the remaining rounds, then those individuals will also win a trip to the Championship Final and compete to find the winner in the Suzuki Shootout! So if you fancy yourself as a good "driver", you still have plenty of opportunities to land a "Suzuki Kizashi Hole in One" at one of the remaining qualifying events.

We also understand that Australia's golf "host with the most" Brett Ogle from the Fox Sports Golf Show will be the official Master of Ceremonies for the Championship Final at RACV Royal Pines Resort. Event Director Taren Hocking said: We could not think of a better person to officiate proceedings than Brett, he is such a renowned golf identity and an all round great bloke who we know will ensure all the finalists are entertained and informed during their Championship trip. Hopefully he will even share a few secrets about keeping cool under finals pressure and some last minute tricks of the trade to help or our vying Amateur Pairs.

If you and your playing partner think you have what it takes to reach the Championship Final, then you should seek out one of the many opportunities available as the regional events continue through to early February.

It costs only $30 per person to register for the event, which is open to men and women over the age of 18. With no additional costs to play in the Championship Final and your immediate bonus of a Dozen Callaway HX Diablo Golf Balls per pair and a chance at the Kizashi Hole in one at every regional event, this is the best value Amateur Tournament of its kind.
