Grab your clubs golfers – the festival of golf is coming to town and it’s bringing an epic party to Glenelg.
Blitz Golf League is returning in January next year in January, but this time it’s bigger than ever.
Golfing pros will be going head-to-head with celebrities on the green across the state as part of the now week-long festival of Golf.
Blitz Golf League’s summer run will feature in three other states before culminating in a South Australian roadshow on January 6, 7 and 9. Across Adelaide, North Adelaide, and Normanville on the Fleurieu Peninsula, three days of play will be accompanied by festival events ending with the National Final on January 9, 2022.
Concept Creator, Simon Zybek, says the annual Blitz Golf Tournament has always been a smash hit with families here in Adelaide.
“This year we wanted to go big, showcasing different parts of South Australia, and bringing the fun of Blitz Golf to a variety of regions for all families to enjoy,” Simon said.
“Adelaide and the Fleurieu Peninsula are picturesque locations with amazing golf courses, and we can’t wait to bring some exciting action to the people of South Australia.”
Entertainment at the National Final will take place at Glenelg Golf Club on Sunday January 9 including multiple live music acts, DJs and a magician, as well as a fan zone holding competitions and giveaways for guests of all ages, ensuring the action will roll through a stadium hole and the central village non-stop.
Kid’s will also have a chance to head around the village to collect an array of goodies with the $10 Blitz Showbag, which will showcase some of South Australia’s leading local goods and brands.
Complementing the activities of the day, appetites will be satisfied with various food trucks as the Festival of Golf partners with a Fork On The Road event for the first time to create ‘Fork on the Green’.
Simon says the food partnership allows for a community-inspired environment, as Blitz Golf League aims to bring a festival atmosphere to the annual event.
“Fork On The Road unites Adelaide’s best food trucks by promoting and celebrating the bourgeoning street food culture in Adelaide,” says Simon.
Play time is strictly three hours on each day of play as Blitz aims to shake up how golf is played in Australia, and males and females compete side by side.
With clubs will be in full swing, the Blitz Golf League final will award the winner the biggest prize for a single-day golf event in Australia – over $50,000.
Past celebrity participants in Blitz Golf League have included the likes of Olympic Champion Sally Pearson and Australian Cricketer Greg Blewett, footballers Paul Seedsman, Taylor Walker and Hamish Hartlett, and former A-League star Robbie Cornthwaite. Exciting new participants being released soon.
The Golf Blitz League Finale will take place on Sunday January 9, 2022 from 11:30 am – 4:00 pm at Glenelg Golf Club James Melrose Rd, Novar Gardens.
