The annual Porsche Golf Cup Australia Challenge is an invitation-only amateur competition for current Porsche owners across the country. Conducted as part of the global Porsche Golf Cup Challenge, owners are invited by their official Porsche Centre to represent them in the hotly contested national tournament.
This year saw 120 players vying for success during the one-day Australian competition, which was held on 7 February at the prestigious Royal Melbourne Golf Club, home to two of the world’s pre-eminent golf courses.
The Porsche Golf Cup Australia Challenge awards four category winners.
This year’s full day of play was a tightly-held contest, with the following winners announced:
- Men's A Grade: Gary Chong (representing Porsche Centre Brighton)
- Men's B Grade: Reg Hanson (representing Porsche Centre Melbourne)
- Men's C Grade: Steve Xie (representing Porsche Centre Doncaster)
- Ladies Open: Rebecca Tamayo (representing Porsche Centre Brisbane)
Together, they will compete as Team Australia – in both singles and as a team – against Porsche owners from around 20 other markets at the Porsche Golf Cup Challenge World Final, to be held at the magnificent Club de Golf Alcanada in Mallorca this June.
They will be competing to win the same four categories, as well as the team award.
