The Holden Scramble Championship Final will continue to call the Sunshine Coast home after Sunshine Coast Council extended its relationship with the PGA of Australia as the major destination partner of Australia’s most loved pro-amateur teams’ event.

Brian Thorburn, Chief Executive Officer for the PGA, said he’s thrilled to see Council continue its commitment to golf in the Sunshine State and the continued relationship between the two organisations.

“The PGA is delighted to see our relationship with Sunshine Coast Council continue; their support of the Holden Scramble as the host region of the Championship Final has been a contributing factor in the event’s success over the years. The PGA and the Sunshine Coast Council have an extensive history working together on a number of large scale events and we look forward to seeing this affiliation continuing.”

In a new agreement between the two organisations, the Holden Scramble Championship Final will remain at Twin Waters Golf Club for a further three years, while qualifiers will be able to enjoy the hospitality of the Novotel Twin Waters Resort, the event accommodation provider.

Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson said the Council was pleased to continue its lengthy association with the PGA through its sponsorship of the Holden Scramble, which stretches back to 1995.

"We are thrilled to be able to continue our sponsorship of Australia's largest pro-amateur golf championship and look forward to hosting local events, regional finals and the Championship Final in November," Mayor Jamieson said.

"The opportunity to be involved in an annual teams golf event with very high levels of participation is a fantastic marketing and promotional platform through which we can profile our region to a national audience of 37,000 participants.

"This partnership also allows us to continue our long-standing support of tournament golf in the region."

Twin Waters Golf Club and Novotel Twin Waters Resort have become synonymous with the Holden Scramble, giving teams a huge incentive to participate.

The Championship Final is the golfing experience of a lifetime, with four days of golf, social activities and the opportunity to play with a current PGA Tour of Australasia Professional in the final round.

The Holden Scramble is an exciting teams Ambrose format that is celebrating its 25th year in 2016, and will host over 460 events across the country from 1 March to 30 September.

Winners from local events progress to a Regional Final where they are teamed up with their PGA Club Professional, vying for the chance to progress to the Championship Final, which will be held from 25 – 28 November.
