SIMILAR BUSINESS PATHS
SGA and Drummond Golf have very similar histories, with both businesses considered trailblazers in the Australian Golf Industry. Further, both started in the Bendigo region in central Victoria. Drummond Golf, which was founded by Ray Drummond in 1974, began as a single-store retail business in Bendigo before expanding to its current network of 48 stores across Australia. Similarly, SGA started as small, family-run business from a home office in the nearby country town of Heathcote. It was founded by Sally and Matthew Pitt in 2004. Through providing friendly, honest and reliable customer service, SGA has grown into Australia’s Largest Golf Club, offering the country’s best value golf handicaps, as well as golf trips, tours, tournaments and events.
