There might not be any embarrassing speeches and photos, but this 21st is sure to be memorable. The Holden Scramble turns 21 in 2012, off the back of one of the most successful years in recent history, with over 440 events and nearly 38,000 players joining the celebrations.
As part of the 20th Anniversary celebrations, there were numerous promotions and prize give-aways, such as V8 Hotlaps, Netball test series tickets, Golf Australia Magazine subscriptions, Callaway gift packs, PGA gift cards and more. But the main prize draw was by far the brightest candle on the birthday cake with GM Holden giving away a brand new Series II Holden Cruze for one lucky Scrambler.
Trevor Isaacs, from Cheltenham was the lucky man fortunate enough to win the keys to Australia’s most popular small car after playing in the Holden Scramble at Kingswood Golf Club.
In 2011 the Holden Scramble also welcomed Delta Air Lines onboard as a support sponsor. To celebrate the new relationship, Delta gave away two return tickets and accommodation to the USA plus tickets to the 2012 US Open in San Francisco. The lucky Holden Scrambler to have his name pulled out was Adam Watson, who played in the Holden Scramble at Nowra Golf Club in New South Wales.
So after a fantastic milestone year which saw some amazing achievements and plenty of memorable moments it’s now time for the Holden Scramble to sink its teeth into its 21st year. The Scramble’s 21st presents include a rejuvenated prize pack thanks to Callaway Golf and some new social media initiatives to get further involvement from the nearly 40,000 Holden Scramblers out there.
The Holden Scramble prizes that will be up for grabs at every one of the expected 460 events run across the country this year will feature four brand new Callaway Deluxe Cart Bags for the winning team as well a mixture of additional prizes, such as golf towels, pitch repairers and ball markers to complete a fantastic table of prizes
