Golf Australia and Isuzu announce sponsorship extension

POSTED ON November 5, 2018 @ 8:30 am

Australia’s premier truck brand Isuzu today extended its long-term sponsorship of the Queensland Open until the end of 2021.

The new three-year agreement will extend Isuzu Australia and Brisbane Isuzu’s position as naming rights sponsor of the Queensland Open to nine years.

Golf Australia and Isuzu announced the sponsorship extension today, the final day of the 2018 Isuzu Queensland Open at The Brisbane Golf Club.

Golf Australia Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Pitt said the new arrangement, from 2019 – 2021, would help foster continued development and growth of the Isuzu Queensland Open.

“The support from Isuzu over the past six years has ensured the continuation of the Queensland Open and has seen the Open go from strength to strength,” Mr Pitt said.
“Isuzu is a highly successful organisation and has been a great partner for Golf Australia in our efforts to grow our game.”

“The 2018 Isuzu Queensland Open has been the most successful on record with interest in the event and crowd numbers up and very importantly and excitingly, the first female in Becky Kay qualifying to play in the championship.”

Isuzu Australia Dealer Sales Manager Queensland, Graham Miller said Isuzu Australia, along with Brisbane Isuzu, were very pleased to confirm ongoing support of the Isuzu Queensland Open golf tournament.

“This year is of course the 94th staging of the event which is unique in its format allowing both professionals and amateurs to compete against each other,” said Mr Miller.

“We look forward to working with Golf Australia to ensure that the tournament remains a pre-eminent event in the Australian summer of golf.”

Mr Miller is supported by Brisbane Isuzu Dealer Principal, Alan Newcombe. Mr Newcombe was a driving force behind the company’s role in resurrecting the 94-year old tournament at Brookwater Golf Club six years ago.

“I’m delighted to be involved in the Queensland Open for another three years. This partnership will help the continued growth of the tournament and help grow the game in Queensland,” Mr Newcombe said.
