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.

Lexus Australia has reduced retail prices of certain Lexus models to pass on the benefit of the Australian Government's increase to the Luxury Car Tax (LCT) threshold. The LCT threshold from yesterday (July 1) applies to vehicles above $63,184 at a rate of 33 per cent. This marks a $1300 increase on the previous price of $61,884, which was introduced on July 1 last year. Lexus has responded by reducing its prices by the amount of the reduction in LCT payable. Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said Lexus had made the move to pass on the benefit of the higher threshold to its customers. "We are pleased to offer reduced prices to Lexus customers to align with the increase in the LCT threshold," Mr Hanley said. "This will mean a price reduction on most Lexus vehicle lines, from the IS sports sedan to the LX large SUV." Lexus' revised pricing structure is now in force. Revised Lexus pricing list*:
