2014 Schweppes Victoria Park Pro Am

Victoria Park, in association with PGA Australia, was excited to host our second annual Pro-Am Golf Tournament. The chance for amateur golfers to play a round of golf with a professional provided such a rare opportunity and a great way to improve the development of professional golfing in Queensland. The players were split into two sessions with a morning and afternoon’s group spread across the course and teeing off on a shotgun start.

Throughout the day, players stayed fuelled and refreshed with the numerous on-course offerings from Victoria Park and some of our supporting sponsors. Players could cool down with icy cold Schweppes refreshments on the 4th and 15th hole plus at hospitality tent. Or they could experience something a bit stronger with Robert Oatley Vineyards wine tasting on the 17th hole, Carlton & United Breweries liquor tasting on the 9th hole, and to keep the sugar levels up there was a lolly and fruit buffet on the 15th hole courtesy of Victoria Park Functions. Also, if players were feeling like something more substantial, IL Centro’s famous duck pies were on the menu at the 12th Hole.

We’d like to congratulate golf professionals Brett Rankin, Taylor Cooper and Anthony Brown, who took out a three way-tie with their superb score of 7 under par. These three Professionals along with Leigh McKechnie then went on to compete in our bonus Victoria Park PGA Putt Putt Challenge with an additional total prize pool of $1,500 up for grabs. Congratulations to Brett Rankin who demonstrated some excellent putting skills to take away first prize in the putt putt competition.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, the players on the day, and contributors for making it such a fantastic event! We’re already looking forward to next year’s Pro-Am!
