Testimonials for The SGA Tour (SGA’s official golf events)

“Many thanks for organising such a great day out and making us feel so welcome. Rich, you do a terrific job of communicating with the golfers. I noticed how you acknowledged everyone at some point. Love seeing the photos on facebook, which is a great showcase to outsiders showing how everyone is having fun. Keep up the awesome work and see you at another event soon.”

Lisa S

“Goodness what a fun day we had. You made us so welcome, I was very nervous and not sure what to expect but I was blown away with the organisation and friendliness of the event. Our playing partners put my nerves to rest and we had a great day. I have already highlighted a few of the Sunday games so you will definitely be seeing more of us. Thanks once again Rich for making us feel so welcome.”


“I just wanted to pass on my thanks for the day yesterday. It was the first time that my pals and I had played through SGA and the first time we had ever played on one of the Sandbelt courses. Both experiences were amazing - we have all been talking about it like little kids since. We were treated as pros and everything went so smoothly...the players all treated everyone with respect and there was lots of encouragement on course as well. I will be recommending SGA to my mates and look forward to the next time I play in one of your events.”

Lachlan Y

“Just a quick thanks and congrats for Monday's event at Huntingdale. I was very impressed with the organization and friendly welcome from yourself and Sally. I had a great time and would very happily play with Darren, Pete or Wayne again. As you may have noticed, I have joined as an SGA Tour Member. That's how impressed I was immediately after the round. I may have had an ordinary day on the scorecard but an extraordinary day otherwise. Thanks again.”

Luke D

“Thanks again for another amazing event with such a great group of people. You certainly do an incredible job and I reckon SGA is the best golfing organisation in Australia.”

Darren Nelson

“Hi RIchard, Thanks for your outstanding customer service on the day and with your post-event correspondence. We thank you and the rest of the team at SGA for what is at times a thankless job. Coming from a Customer Service background, just seeing your email was another highlight of the day. PS: Please book us in for the next event!”

Neil A

“Just wanted to thank you for today. Especially looking after us with the surprise last minute change to our group. The three of us had such a great time and the event was run superbly. Adam specifically mentioned it’s the best one he’s been to (and I know he’s been to a few) so hats off to you and your staff for such a well managed day!”

Shane C

Posted on an online golf forum: “So just want to give a big shout out to Social Golf Australia here. After mulling for over a year as to whether to join a club again or join one of the many fine options out there, we joined SGA at the start of the year. Was unable to play until April, but have to say from the beginning, be it in email form or in person, what a warm and welcoming organization we have found them to be. We have found the members to be genuine in their welcome as well, all of which added to the bonus of playing top tier courses regularly makes our decision feel very right. So thanks again to all, and we really are enjoying the organization, the company and the courses”

Testimonials for The SGA Golf Club (offering official golf handicaps)

“May I say how impressed I am at the speed, efficiency and professionalism by which you have responded to my email last night. I am happy to say that Tom is quite excited that he will play in the comp in two weeks with a genuine handicap. He can also look forward to the next twelve months in Club competitions. Thank you very much.”

Stephen D – New South Wales

“Awesome, thanks heaps Matt! Been a big learning curve for someone new to the game getting my head around how all this works, you’ve been a great help.”

Josh L – Victoria

“Hey Matt, Merry Christmas and another big thanks for helping me get to play The Old Course at St. Andrews. We were there the weekend of the Open Championship at Carnoustie. Sincere thanks for your advice on this and for the letter of introduction.”

John R – Queensland

“Thanks so much. You guys are so great. It has been such a pleasure dealing with you guys right from the start. You have made it so easy.”

Steve F – New South Wales

“Fantastic - thanks so much for all that Matt, in particular turning all this around so quickly. This initiative is great for people like me who drift in and out of golf but still have the competitive spirit and being able to maintain an official handicap is much appreciated. Thanks again and take care.”

Rick M – ACT

“I was really impressed with the fast turn around. After submitting my handicap application and scorecards in the morning, I had a GOLF Link number and GA handicap later the same day. I was going to play in a comp this week as an unhandicapped player, but I can enter the official stableford event now. It was such a simple process that I have passed on the SGA Golf Club details to some of my golf pals who have never held a handicap. Thanks everyone at SGA!”

Ryan M – New South Wales

“Hi Matt & Sally, appreciate all your efforts and quick replies and great service. We are very excited now to have our handicaps. Thank you once again.”
