NSW Open Comes to Newcastle

Great Sponsor Opportunities are still available The Australian golfing schedule for 2011 kicks off in early November, which will see some of the world s leading players converge on Australia. Whilst the President s Cup will attract the media s interest, the historical NSW Open will be held at the world famous Newcastle Golf Club on 17th to 20th November 2011 just when golf will be top of mind. Golf NSW, who own and run the tournament in conjunction with the PGA Tour of Australasia, are delighted to be able to have a course as highly rated as Newcastle to hold the annual tournament. Newcastle Golf Club presents an excellent opportunity for Australia s leading golfers to play a course ranked in the top 15 nationally, and which features several holes ranked in the best from around the world said Golf NSW General Manager, Commercial, James Black. To be warmly embraced by the club and the city of Newcastle augurs well for a great future for the tournament, and we look forward to some of the best players in Australia vying for the famous trophy he added. With confirmation that 2010 NSW Open champion, and well known Australian professional, Peter O Malley will return to defend his title, expectations are high that local Novocastrian, James Nitties, will also be looking to return from his success in the US and try and claim the coveted trophy. With a winners list containing the likes of Peter Thomson, Greg Norman, Jack Newton, Ian Baker-Finch and more recently Craig Parry and Peter Lonard, organisers are expecting to again welcome some of Australia s more recognised names immediately after the well publicised Australian Open, which will be held the week prior to the NSW Open. Famous modern day international names such as Nick Price, Jeff Maggert and Ian Woosnam have all attempted to win the title in recent years, so it is a much sought after prize. The NSW Open has a range of sponsorship opportunities for companies to become aligned with this long standing Championship, ranging from Naming Rights to support sponsors, each level with their own unique list of benefits and each at genuinely affordable investment levels. Unlike other sponsorship opportunities with leading golf tournaments, as owners Golf NSW are able to broaden the association across the year through ongoing promotion of the company or business and their services and/or products to over 390 golf clubs and over 170,000 golf club members in NSW.
