The Champions of the Murray was established by Golf on the Murray in 2011, and allowed members of partner clubs to play in a qualifying tournament for the chance to win a golf weekend away. Positive feedback from 2011 finalists encouraged the group to expand this concept and now green fee players have the opportunity to enter the 2013 qualifying events.
Many golfers are currently exploring Golf on the Murray Partner Clubs longing to qualify for the Champions of the Murray final being held at Commercial Golf Resort in Albury in January 2014.
Playable all year-round, these twelve courses offer a golfer of any standard a challenging and rewarding golfing experience. With several of these courses rated in the top 100 golf courses in Australia, Golf on the Murray provides the ultimate golfing experience accompanied with award-winning gourmet food and wine venues located within the Murray region.
In previous years, the Champions of the Murray Finals has been played at Murray Downs Golf and Country Club in 2011 and Tocumwal Golf Club in 2012. All finalists that participated in these tournaments were thrilled with the event with participants coming from the Geelong, Mornington Peninsula and Murray golfing regions.
Finalists who qualify at any of the tournaments held at Golf on the Murray partner clubs during September to November will receive a golf weekend away at Albury Commercial Club. This golf getaway package includes golf, buggies, accommodation and some meals included. In addition, finalists are invited to attend the Presentation Dinner on the Saturday evening where everyone enjoys sharing stories about their game and socialising with other golfing enthusiasts.
Previous winners of the tournament have been extremely proud to claim the award and have proceeded to go back to their respective clubs and proudly announce that they are the Champions of the Murray.
Golf on the Murray experience encapsulates the Murray’s cream of the crop; representing seven premier golf options, value for money packages and affordable holiday locations wrapped up into a golfing haven waiting to be explored.
Golf on the Murray is hoping to expand this event next year and will be encouraging any players who have a golf handicap and Golf Link number to review the 2013/14 qualifying dates and book a golf getaway along the Murray.
