The SA Golf Industry Awards night was held at the Sebel Playford Hotel ADELAIDE on Saturday 21st October 2017. This is an Industry initiative between Golf SA, the PGA (Southern Division), Golf Management Aust (SA) and the South Australian Golf Course Superintendents Association. It is an annual celebration to recognise achievements and contributions to the game of golf in South Australia.
The Victor Harbor Golf club hosted the PGA Ladbrokes Legends Pro-Am tournament in April 2017. The Club was successful in winning the award for the best Legends Pro-am tournament of the year.
The award was presented by Darren BAYNES representing the PGA (Southern Division). Recipients were Ashley PORTER, President (VHGC), Daniel LOVERIDGE, General Manager (VHGC) and Mrs Judy HYDE the generous sole sponsor of the tournament for the day.
On Sat 22/10/16 over 200 people gathered at the Adelaide Convention Centre to attend the 2016 SA Golf Industry Awards night. Representatives and members from GOLF SA, PGA Aust, Golf Management Aust (GMA) and the Golf Course Superintendents Assoc (SAGCSA)., were present along with various sponsors. The MC was Ben Hook and the award winners were interviewed by Wayne Phillips. 15 awards were presented during the evening.
The VHGC Course Superintendent (Michael BOHNSACK) was awarded the SAGCSA Distinguished Service Award. A strong contributor, delivering high standards with over 31 years of service. This is reflected in the presentation of the VHGC Course. The award was presented by Tim WARREN from the SAGCSA (who is also a Course Supt. at Links Lady Bay). Michael was then interviewed by Wayne PHILLIPS.
