2012 Scramble Season tees off at Northbridge

Thursday, 8 March 2012

Coming off one of the most successful years of the Holden Scramble in its 20th birthday, Australia’s favourite team’s competition has teed off with the first event held at Northbridge Golf Club on Sydney’s northern suburbs.

The rain stopped long enough for the first event of the season which was a Women’s Only Holden Scramble. 68 ladies teed off in what has become one of the largest Women’s events on the Scramble calendar. The event, which is proudly sponsored by Northside Holden, has been running since the inception of the Women’s Holden Scramble in 2005, and has seen the members at Northbridge Golf Club embrace what the Scramble is all about – a fun team’s event.

The event organisers Kim & Ray McGlinn said “The 68 ladies got into the spirit of the event wearing Holden Red for the day. Northside Holden have come on board this year and we are looking forward to their continued support of the event.”

The eventual winners on the day were Kim McGlinn, Sue Campbell, Lizzie Campbell and Marian Otten, who played exceptionally well to secure their spot at the Women’s State Final to be held in October. This is the third year in a row the team has won through to a regional final and all four ladies were excited to have qualified again. Hopefully in 2012 the ladies make it all the way and represent Northbridge Golf Club at the Women’s Championship Final at the magnificent Novotel Twin Waters Resort & Twin Waters Golf Club on the Sunshine Coast.

The 21st season of the Scramble is once again shaping to be a big one, with over 300 events already locked into the calendar. With the continued support from event sponsors including Callaway, Sunshine Coast Council, Golf Australia Magazine, Delta Airlines and of course Holden, the PGA continues to provide great value for money for players and clubs alike. The new look prize packs this year will see each winning local event team take away a Callaway Deluxe Cart bag, and of course each player still receives gifts from sponsors including the 6 Callaway Golf Balls, and sponsor offers such as the $550 Cashback offer.
