John Morgan: 0433 319 428 Ric Charlesworth: 0418 906 217 www.supagolf.com SUPA GOLF COURSE GETS PGA APPROVAL Queensland PGA State Manager, Broc Greenhalgh, had never seen Supa Golf played prior to the recent official opening of the Sirromet Winery course at Mount Cotton, south of Brisbane. Now he has nothing but praise for the course and the new format of the game. “I don’t believe there is a golfer of any standard who would not enjoy Supa Golf. We really enjoyed it, and played exactly as we would play any golf course. The equipment may be different and the holes shorter, but the logistics of golf are almost identical. It has many of the components of putt putt, mini golf, the driving range and the actual game itself,” he said. “But unlike those other forms, Supa Golf is a real game. It is competitive, inexpensive, can be played in an hour and the equipment is included in the cost of a round.” The Sirromet course, features four par 4s, four par 3s and one par 5. The longest hole is 150 metres, the shortest 68 metres, and the diameter of the hole is 15 centimetres. Sirromet owner Terry Morris, a keen golfer himself said he was delighted with the layout and condition of the course and, like Greenhalgh, had no doubt all golfers, irrespective of their level of expertise, would find the course a challenge. “Golf is arguably one of the most-loved sports in the world and Supa Golf is an avenue to widen that appeal because it is ideal for family groups.” Mr Morris said, “what appealed most to me about Supa Golf is that it introduces people to the game at a much less daunting level.” Supa Golf was invented in Perth by engineer Andrew van der Meer and it is currently managed by Perth businessman John Morgan, a graduate of Human Movement from UWA and his close friend, former Australian hockey champion Ric Charlesworth. Mr Morgan said that he was excited at the opening of the new course and overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and support that Supa Golf had received at the opening of the Sirromet course. Sirromet is the first Supa Golf course to be built in Queensland however contracts have been signed for four further courses to be built in Queensland over the next four years. The opening of Sirromet has already resulted in great interest from other organisations looking to establish their own Supa Golf course. Supa Golf Europe was established in 2013 and there are currently 11 Supa Golf courses in the Netherlands. Anyone interested in developing a Supa Golf course or wanting further information are welcome to contact John Morgan or Ric Charlesworth at any time.
