Scramble for the prize at Allora

GOLF: Anticipation is building ahead of next weekend's Holden Scramble at the Allora Golf Course, and the stakes have been raised with a lucrative prize.

Participants in the event have the chance to win a car thanks to Warwick Holden, if they can manage to hit a hole in one on the 16th.

Allora Golf Club captain Aaron Simpson said the day served as one of the club's biggest events each year.

"It's our biggest fundraiser, and is a great benefit for a volunteer club,” Simpson said.

"The hole-in-one prize is a great concept, and adds a uniqueness to the day.

"We've had three hole-in-ones before, so it can be done.

"For every 12 spots filled at the event, a team will go through to the regional scramble.

"The field is capped at 24 teams, and currently we have 16, so we are hoping to fill each spot so two teams can compete at the regionals.

"From there, the event takes on the four-ball ambrose format, giving teams of all abilities the chance to make their mark.”

Warwick Holden's Mick Dwan said the business wanted to get involved to offer an incentive for players.

"The club gets a huge benefit out of days like this,” Dwan said.

"Allora is a good community area, and it gives players a great chance to walk home with a car.

"All participants will also be eligible for a cash-back offer with Warwick Holden, ranging from $500-$2000, depending on the car, which can be transferred to a family member.”

The Holden Scramble is a nation-wide event, and the winners at Allora have a chance to further progress.

To enter your team of four for the Holden Scramble, the cost is $60 a person, which includes green fees, a Callaway/Holden gift pack, a three-month subscription to Australian Golf Digest, a complimentary drink and the chance to win prizes on each hole.
