With the support of GM Holden, the PGA has expanded the State Final series of the Women’s Holden Scramble into Tasmania and South Australia, in an effort to boost female participation in golf and the Holden Scramble.
Mount Barker Golf Club will host the 2014 Women’s Holden Scramble South Australian State Final on the 3rd of October and Riverside Golf Club will host the 2014 Women’s Holden Scramble Tasmanian State Final on the 10th of October.
The Women’s Holden Scramble forms part of the overall Holden Scramble event and since its introduction in 2005 has seen over 10,000 women hit the fairways.
The Women’s Holden Scramble is a fantastic opportunity for female golfers across Australia to participate in the fun and excitement that is the Holden Scramble with the chance to win some fantastic prizes.
Teams proceeding through to the State Final will team up with their PGA Club Professional for the chance to qualify through to the Holden Scramble Championship Final at Twin Waters Golf Club on the Sunshine Coast in December.
The Championship Final is the golfing experience of a lifetime, with four days of golf, social activities and the opportunity to play with a female Tour Professional, such as two time European Tour winner Stacey Keating, in the final round.
Neither Tasmania nor South Australia has been represented in Championship Finals since 2007 and 2006 respectively.
“The Women’s Holden Scramble is an integral part to the overall Holden Scramble and is a fantastic chance for women across the country to play in a fun teams format as part of a national competition”, said Michael Chard, National Events Manager.
“The PGA of Australia and GM Holden are committed to growing female participation in golf across the country and this initiative is the first step to this process”.
All Holden Scramble players receive a $550 Cashback offer on the purchase of a new Holden vehicle, which is also transferrable to immediate family members.
The Holden Scramble is one of the most recognised brands in Australian golf and Holden has held the naming rights to the Scramble for the past 23 years, making it their longest sponsorship deal outside motorsport.
Since 1992, the Holden Scramble has seen close to one million Australians tee off, making it the largest and most successful pro-amateur teams event in the country.
