Golf Australia (GA) is thrilled to announce a new multi-year major partnership with Australia’s leading insurance specialist, Apia.
Apia will be recognised as an official partner of GA’s Get into Golf seniors’ program, and will support participants in staying active, connected to their community and learning the skills of the sport.
Apia will also be an exclusive partner of all GA event volunteers and an official partner of major events across the Golf Australia calendar when they resume.
Apia will connect directly with Australian golfers through www.golf.org.au and GA’s handicap system, where more than 38,000 golfers check their handicaps daily.
Chief executive James Sutherland said Golf Australia was excited about the partnership’s synergies.
“Apia has a goal to help Australians enjoy longer, happier and healthier lives in retirement and this is something that we hope to directly influence through the health and wellbeing benefits of more people playing more golf,” Sutherland said.
“We look forward to working with Apia with the shared goal of driving golf participation and rewarding golfers across the country.” – James Sutherland
