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 Mazda3 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.
