WIP extends 11th hole to $270,000

Windsor Income Protection, WIP, has further committed to the Isuzu Queensland Open by introducing the ‘WIP Birdie Bonanza’ bringing the total prize offering on the 11th hole to $270,000.

In addition to the 199m par-3 at The Brisbane Golf Club offering a $250,000 hole-in-one prize, the first professional player that birdies or eagles the 11th hole in Round 1, 2, 3 and 4 (Thursday – Sunday) of the 2018 Isuzu Queensland Open from 1 – 4 November will win $20,000*.

A ‘WIP Birdie Bonanza’ leaderboard will be installed near the 11th green for spectators to track the progress of vying players across the four rounds.

WIP have also proudly continued their sponsorship of the $250,000 hole-in-one prize which was a hot feature of last year’s tournament. The reward is large, but the challenge is simple; the first player to have a hole-in-one in Round 3 or Round 4 of the championship will be awarded $125,000, with a further $125,000 awarded to the Queensland Golf Foundation.

The 11th hole has been a prime target of many aces in recent times with 24 hole-in-ones made over the past 10 years, with The Brisbane Golf Club member Julie Anning achieving two within a space of nine days in 2014.

The Queensland Golf Foundation, the fundraising arm of Golf Queensland, works to increase the number of people playing golf in Queensland through implementing new programs and initiatives for children, women and in clubs. With the support of the Isuzu Queensland Open, the Qld Golf Foundation will be able to provide even more opportunity for people in Queensland to play our great game.

The 2018 Isuzu Queensland Open will be played from 1 – 4 November at The Brisbane Golf Club. Visit the website for more information.
