Qantas Frequent Flyers can join Qantas Golf Club for free or sign up to a Premium membership at an annual cost of $249. The Premium membership unlocks additional benefits including a range of private golf courses and the ability to obtain an official Golf Australia handicap. Australian golf legend and Qantas ambassador Greg Norman arrived into Sydney today to share his expertise exclusively with Qantas Golf Club members.
Qantas Golf Club, launched in December last year, is an online club providing Frequent Flyers access to tee times at over 90 courses, exclusive golf events, tournaments and golf holiday packages, all while earning Qantas Points.
The Shark hosted an intimate golf clinic with Qantas Frequent Flyers at New South Wales Golf Club in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. Members were then given the chance to put their new skills to the test by playing 9-holes, including one hole with Greg.
Qantas Loyalty CEO Lesley Grant said participants received the invitation to attend as members of the Qantas Golf Club, with the event booking out in less than two hours.
Greg Norman said, “Our great game is a lifelong passion for many – and indeed several of today’s participants are fans who’ve shown me support throughout my career - so it’s great to spend some time helping Qantas Golf Club members refine their game by offering tips that I hope will help them improve their score.
Today’s event also brought together rising golfing star 19 year old Antonio Murdaca with Greg Norman for the very first time.
Ms Grant said: “After Antonio won the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship recently, Greg reached out to Antonio on social media suggesting they have a round of golf. The pair had never actually met, so we thought today was a great chance to bring them together so they could arrange that much anticipated game.”
Greg added: “It was great to finally meet Antonio in-person and it was a fantastic surprise for Qantas Golf Club members to have the benefit of Antonio’s golfing tips as well.”
