LEXUS GIVES GOLFERS THE CHANCE TO SCORE THE ULTIMATE DRIVE09/07/2012
Lexus Australia has collaborated with Golf Link Partners to give amateur golfers the chance to win a Lexus GS 250 Luxury sports sedan, valued at $80,000.
Lexus Golf Link Cup is a new online amateur golf competition open to all Australian club golfers who have a valid handicap and a Golf Link membership number.
Every golfer who registers and plays at least six competition rounds of golf in the three-month competition period from July 10 to October 9 goes into a random draw to win the Lexus GS 250 Luxury sports sedan.
Lexus' GS 250 Luxury comes with a VVT-i equipped all-alloy quad cam 2.5-litre direct-injection V6 engine that develops 154kW, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift.
It also features new, aggressive exterior styling, an ergonomically designed dual-zone, driver-focused cockpit and a raft of active and passive safety features.
Lexus GS Ambassador, former Rugby World Cup-winning Wallaby captain and keen golfer John Eales, is encouraging all amateur players to sign up.
"This is a fantastic initiative for club golfers all around Australia, no matter their skill level, to be part of a unique competition while being in the running to take home a superb Lexus GS 250 Luxury," he said.
"I'm looking forward to following the competition and seeing who finishes on top."
Lexus Australia chief executive Tony Cramb added that Lexus Golf Link Cup provided the ideal incentive for budding amateurs to play their best golf.
"Lexus Golf Link Cup allows amateur golfers to showcase their skills and track their progress via the on-line leaderboard and at the same time have a chance of winning a highly coveted prize - Lexus' latest generation grand touring sports sedan," Mr Cramb said.
The eight best golfers as determined by ranking across grade and gender - two each from A, B and C grades and two women golfers - will advance to the national final at Royal Melbourne on November 5.
These eight players will also be guests of Lexus at the VIP Lexus Lounge in the Birdcage at Flemington Racecourse for the Melbourne Cup the following day.
Entry details can be found on the Lexus Golf Link Cup website at www.lexusgolflinkcup.com.au.

Strong customer satisfaction in Australia has helped Lexus win the automotive category of Roy Morgan Research's Customer Satisfaction Awards for a second time. The awards are based on Roy Morgan's Single Source survey, which is made up of information from approximately 52,000 Australians over the past 12 months. The Single Source survey covers new and used car purchases, with ownership lengths ranging from 12 months to over 10 years. Roy Morgan named Lexus the leader in the Car Manufacturers category for customer satisfaction after winning the most number of months in 2014. Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said receiving the customer satisfaction award for the second time is a reflection of the brand's strong emphasis on quality products combined with exceptional customer service. "Lexus produces innovative luxury vehicles that are known in Australia and around the world for their high quality and reliability," Mr Hanley said. "This combines well with the Lexus covenant: 'treat every customer as you would a guest in your own home'. "And with the excitement and enjoyment we've been injecting into our range - including our recently launched RC and NX Lines - we believe that we'll continue to satisfy a growing number of Australian customers in the future," he said. Lexus' win in the 2014 Roy Morgan Customer Satisfaction Awards builds on a number of other awards received in the last year. In 2014 Lexus also took first place in the What Car?/J.D. Power Customer Satisfaction Survey in the UK, carsales.com.au named Lexus IS as a recommended option in the Prestige Cars <$100K category in Australia, while Lexus RC and NX were both recently named as finalists in the 2015 World
