Playgolf WEEK – Ladies �Sip n Swing� – Thu 31 Oct

Kerri-Anne Kennerley welcoming guests A special invitation only cocktail event was hosted by Australia s much loved Kerri-Anne Kennerley at the Solitarie Audi Showroom at Hawthorn. As a Golf Australia board member Kennerley shared her love and passion for golf with the audience who were local Adelaide corporate women. Stating that golf is a wonderful pastime that helps us stay social, healthy and active throughout life, Kerri-Anne encouraged all guests to try golf and get out there and have some fun. Golf Australia Marketing Manager Stefanie Carniato, thanked all for coming along to get a taste of what golf as a sport has to offer and said that the Sip & Swing event particularly focuses on females and encouraging them to trial and play golf. Currently there are just fewer than 100,000 female club golfers across Australia. Research shows that females want to try golf and get into the game, which is why Golf Australia is currently developing a new female participation program. The program is being established to encourage women of all ages to take up the game and assist with their progression from beginner to keen golfer. Stefanie introduced PGA Professional Anne-Marie Knight and LPG Professional Sarah Douglass who were providing instruction at the PGA Swing net and putting green respectively. All were encouraged to have a chat with them throughout the course of the night as both women have a wealth of knowledge to share, including tips to help beginners with their game. Essentially though, the night was about sipping and swinging, a chance for guests to acquaint themselves with the game. Try it out in a non-intimidating, friendly environment whilst having a glass of wine and of course having fun. All guests relished the chance for a photo opportunity with Kerri-Anne and appreciated her presence at the event. The highlight of the night was the putting competition along with door prizes, including Srixon gift packs, a Ninettes Hairdressing voucher and an offer of an Audi for the Weekend. The lucky winner of the Audi supplied by Solitaire Automotive was Jessica De Pieri (Associate) from Kelly & Co Lawyers.
