The ASGCC becomes The SGA Championships in its 12th year on the Gold Coast

Our 12th annual national championships took place on the Gold Coast from August 14 – 18. For the first 11 years, the event has been the Australian Social Golf Club Championships (ASGCC). This has always proven quite a mouthful so this year we decided it was time to shorten the name a little to The SGA Championships. We launched the new name and logo at the 2016 event with the logo to appearing on all event materials and apparel.

The other major development of the championships this year was placing a greater emphasis on the competition for the individual grades with prizes each day for the leading players in each grade. We have still maintained the team competition as it adds an extra dimension to the fun and it is a huge part of the tradition of this event, but the grades now feature more prominently than in the past. We still had trophies and prizes for teams, but the daily prize pools will reward the leading players in each grade and a greater proportion of the overall prizes will be allocated to the grades.

Along with a fresh new logo, the new branding heralded a new chapter of the SGA Championships with a new accommodation partner, The Mantra Legends in Surfers Paradise. We also welcomed our new apparel partners into the fold for the event this year, with RJ Golf Apparel making sure our golfers looked a treat on course with our custom designed tournament polos and GAZMAN looked after the off-course style by providing our winners with their new range of Easy Care chinos and vouchers to spend online and in store.

Sincere thanks also to our long-standing an loyal sponsors who have made such a great contribution to this event for several years. It was a pleasure to welcome back our long-term partners, Golf Clearance Outlet, Garmin , Heathcote Winery, Good Food Gift Cards, Srixon and Gold Coast Direct Charters - we thank them all for their continued support of the SGA Championships.
