Crest Link is proud to announce they are the official golf apparel and merchandise sponsor of the Australian Open until 2020 and beyond. Crest Link has been the apparel sponsor since 2015 and is thrilled to be extending this honour.
What is the Australian Open?
As the oldest and most prestigious tournament of the PGA tour of Australasia, the Australian Open holds a special place in the heart of golf fans. The winner of the tournament will receive the Stonehaven Cup and take home around AUD$1.25 million, although this amount does vary from year to year. Last year it was the little known Australian Cameron Davis who took home the top spot at just 22 years of age. The youngster had only turned professional a mere 13 months prior to his historic win on one of the world’s biggest sporting stages!
In 2018, The Lakes Golf Club of Sydney’s south, will play host to the coveted golf event. To keep with tradition, the event is generally held on the eastern coast of Australia.
Crest Links Role
As official apparel sponsor, Crest Link’s role is to provide attire to all officials and event staff. Crest Link will also have an official merchandise marquee set up at the Australian Open especially for the event.
Crest Link has strong ties with the golf tours and top players in the region. Over the years, Crest Link has boasted a wealth of talented brand ambassadors including Australians Steven Jeffress, Darren Beck, Josh Younger, Gareth Paddison, and international stars S.S.P Chawrasia, and Chiragh Kumar.
