The Oceanique Skyline Golf Shootout will represent an exciting first in Australian golf, as 5 PGA professionals take a “nearest the pin” competition to the limit by teeing off from the rooftop of Perth’s Oceanique Luxury Apartments and trying to hit the putting green at The Cut Golf Course.
The Shootout will be held under lights following the Mandurah Mazda PGA Pro Am at The Cut on Thursday June 2nd. The event will feature a stadium-like atmosphere with spectators gathered around the target area right in front of The Cut clubhouse.
The event is a first for WA Golf and for the Western Australian PGA.
5 PGA Professionals including golfing legends Wayne Smith, Jarrod Mosely and Glenn Joyner will take part in the nearest the pin competition teeing off from the 5th floor podium rooftop of Oceanique down to The Cut’s practice putting green. The Professionals will be competing for prize money totaling $2,000 for the nearest the pin golf shots. Each player will have four chances at getting their ball closest to the pin.
The Cut Golf Course surrounds the luxury Oceanique apartments that showcase stunning ocean and golf course views from every apartment within a truly resort style atmosphere. Oceanique will have 2 fully appointed display apartments open for your viewing throughout the day, and will be raffling one night’s accommodation at Oceanique Luxury Apartment 28 valued at $350 for a lucky person who inspects the display apartments.
“The Oceanique Skyline Shootout is an exciting new addition to the WA PGA Pro Am circuit,” said The Cut Golf Course’s General Manager, Declan McCollam.
“It is only possible thanks to the generosity of Oceanique who are sponsoring the event and have been past supporters of WA PGA Championship events held at The Cut Golf Club in 2007 and 2008.
“This is the type of event golf needs to appeal to, and be attractive to, younger players. The Cut Golf Club hopes to add other such events to run alongside its traditional golf tournaments in the future, making The Cut an industry leader in innovative ways to promote the game of golf.
