Thrifty is proud to be a major partner of the inaugural Auto Club Golf Championship

30 November 2012

Thrifty Car Rental is proud to be a major sponsor in the launch of an exciting new, national amateur golf tournament which is unlike any other tournament in Australia or New Zealand – Auto Club Golf Championship.

Members of Australian state and territory Auto Clubs (RACV, NRMA, RACQ, RAA, RAC, RACT and AANT) or AANZ in New Zealand, are offered the exclusive opportunity to enter a two-person team in one of over 40 regional qualifying rounds spread across Australia and New Zealand.

The winning team from each of the state and territory qualifying events to be played between October 2012 and January 2013, will progress to compete in the Auto Club Golf Championship final, to be held at the stunning RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast over two days from February 28 to March 1, 2013.

Not only will the finalists win return flights to the Gold Coast and three nights' accommodation, every event entrant will have the opportunity to win a bounty of prizes, including the Thrifty's Longest Drive prize of two days car hire for the player at each qualifying event who hits the longest drive on the day.

We have already seen a number of winners including our first women to take out the prize at the recent Victor Harbour qualifying event in SA. All winners can be found on the Facebook page.

The winners of the Auto Club Golf Championship final will earn the right to battle it out with the world's best at the 2013 World Amateur Inter-Teams Golf Championship in Malaysia.

Auto Club Golf Championship entry is open to men and women Auto Club members 18 years and older with a current Golf Link handicap. To register visit
