AEI Insurance on board at NSW Open

One lucky golfer could walk away with a cool $100,000 simply by making an ace at Twin Creeks during the NSW Open, courtesy of the AEI Insurance Broking Group.

In a novel twist, at the conclusion of the second round, 18 lucky amateurs and 18 professionals will get the chance at a shot for the cash on a specially constructed par three right in front of the clubhouse.

AEI’s Russell Chegwyn said his company was thrilled to be involved in the Championship and the hole-in-one challenge.

“My business partners and I thought the hole-in-one challenge was a good way of giving a bit of exposure to our business as well as provide a reason for people to stay around, have a beer, and enjoy the atmosphere.”

“It’s a unique way to be involved in the event. Hopefully someone can take it off and we can present them with a cheque for $100,000,” Mr. Chegwyn said.

AEI are a company that is proud of it’s connection to western Sydney and sees it’s presence in the area as vital to their business over the next 20 years.

“We are massive supporter of whats going out here in western Sydney. We see it as part of a huge growth for the business over the next 20 years, this corridor between Penrith and Macarthur and the endless possibilities for the business we deal in,” he said.

Mr Chegwyn is an avid golfer and a proud foundation member of Twin Creeks. He has vivid memories of following around his heroes back in the day and hopes to see plenty of junior golfers become as inspired about the game as he is.

“I remember following Norman, Baker-Finch and the other guys around at the NSW Open back in the 1980’s.”

“They inspired me to become good at the game and hopefully the young kids attending will also be inspired to achieve great things into the future,” Mr. Chegwyn smiled.
