About


The Mazda Victorian Four-Ball Championship commenced in 1997 in response to a desire to create more State level events for club golfers, regardless of their geographic location, age or handicap level. T
he event has grown significantly since attracting 500 pairs in the inaugural year to now annually attracts around 900 competing pairs. In participation terms, the Mazda Victorian Four-Ball Championship is the largest golf event conducted by Golf Victoria and the largest amateur golf event conducted in Victoria.

In a major coup for Golf Victoria, Mazda Victoria, in conjunction with Above Par Events has signed a three-year agreement as naming rights sponsor of the Mazda Victorian Four-Ball Championship. The agreement will run for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 events. From 1997 to 2004, Mazda were previously the naming rights sponsor of the Victorian Four-Ball Championship when the event was run by the former Victorian Golf Association. The exciting new sponsorship will see the introduction of a brand new Mazda2 on offer as a prize for any participant who records a hole-in-one on the designated par 3 of all qualifying events and the State Final.
