Free entry to Coolum 2011

GOLF fans attending the Saturday session of the 2011 Australian PGA Championship this November will get in free.

The PGA of Australia launched “Free Ticket Saturday” this week as a further initiative to mark the organisation’s 100th birthday.

With the Coolum field currently featuring the likes of Greg Norman, Adam Scott, Jason Day, Geoff Ogilvy, Bubba Watson, Darren Clarke, Robert Allenby and Aaron Baddeley, PGA CEO Brian Thorburn says the initiative is set to ensure everyone gets the opportunity to see Australian golf at its best.

“This year will be the biggest year in Australian golf for many, many years and the PGA want to give everyone the chance to be a part of the Australian PGA Championship,” said Thorburn.

“Since 2002 the PGA Championship has been an extremely successful event at its Sunshine Coast home and this year we hope fans will come from far and wide to be part of such a huge occasion.”

Tickets for the remaining days of the Australian PGA Championship also went on sale this week, with an early bird rate $10 off gate prices.

Those wishing to take advantage of the ‘Free ticket Saturday’ offer will still need to book their complimentary ticket through Ticketek. No booking fees will apply.
