Volkswagen has been a proud partner of the Australian PGA Championship presented by Coca-Cola since 2006. First officially played in 1905, The PGA Championship is Australia’s oldest professional golfing event with an illustrious list of past champions including Gary Player, Seve Ballesteros, Greg Norman, Ian Baker-Finch, Geoff Ogilvy and Robert Allenby.
The 2012 tournament took place from 13-16 December at the Palmer Coolum Resort on the Sunshine Coast with Australian Daniel Popovic emerging triumphant to take home the Kirkwood Cup.
As the official vehicle partner of the tournament, Volkswagen provides a fleet of vehicles to transport players and officials. Volkswagen also offers a special prize for a hole in one on the par three 14th hole, which in 2012 was a new up! In spite of several players coming close no one managed a hole in one on this occasion.
The Volkswagen Fan Zone provided fans with the opportunity to test their golf skills through various activities including a special Putt Putt course featuring a tricky hole in one challenge into the boot of a Volkswagen Tiguan.
