CLUB GOLFERS are set to be the big winners with TaylorMade Golf signing on as title sponsor for the 19th annual World Masters Golf Championship on the Gold Coast from 19 to 25 October 2014.
The TaylorMade announcement marks a new beginning for this tournament which was well known as the Mitsubishi Masters. Mitsubishi Motors had sponsored the tournament since it started 19 years ago.
Hosted by Go Golfing, Managing Director Peter McCarthy said he was grateful for Mitsubishi Motors long term support and excited about what TaylorMade Golf will bring to the event.
“Mitsubishi was Go Golfing’s first ever sponsor and their support allowed us to present a tournament that has been enjoyed by more than 13,000 golfers over the past 18 years. While it may take me a little while to stop calling this tournament the Mitsubishi Masters, there is genuine excitement around what TaylorMade Golf brings to the experience.”
The TaylorMade World Masters Golf Championship is open to male and female golfers aged 35 and over. There are18 age and handicap divisions, guaranteeing golfers compete and play with golfers their own age and standard.
Players enjoy a professional tournament experience as well as nightly social and entertainment events headlined by a welcome dinner featuring international comedy and a gala presentation dinner. There’s over $100,000 in prizes which must be won and a car, overseas golf tours and luxury golf holidays are among the major prize draws.
Jerome Ballard from Twin Creeks in Sydney has an app on his phone that counts down the days to the World Masters. “This will be my 13th straight year. It’s just a sensational event, very social, great value and the highlight of my golfing year. It’s also hassle free as Go Golfing book my flights, accommodation, golf transfers and valet my clubs from course to course. I love it.”
The success of the World Masters on the Gold Coast inspired Go Golfing in 2000 to start the Wrest Point Masters in Hobart. Fifteen years on this event continues to attract 400+ golfers for what is arguably Australia’s best ‘week of golf’.
Go Golfing’s plans for worldwide expansion of Masters tournaments has got off to a great start with 600 golfers competing in the inaugural Centara World Masters in Thailand. China and Vietnam are also on the drawing board.
Starting with the Mitsubishi Masters 19 years ago, Go Golfing Travel now takes golfers all over Australia and to 20 countries for tournaments, tours and holidays as well as hosting record numbers of international visitors here to enjoy Australia’s golf and attractions.
