VW Scramble Comes to Oakbank
17 teams of 4 competed for a range of prizes in the Volkswagen Scramble held at the OGC on Sunday February 24. Prizes on offer included a brand new VW for anyone who could get a hole in one on the 14th green. Unfortunately no one was successful.
The event was made possible by the support of Duttons, who provided the car, with the organisation done by Ben Traeger of On Course Golf. Club Captain Ben Birtles did a tremendous amount of work getting the teams together.
Following the presentations, 'AJ' announced a special discount on VW vehicles for those who played on the day.
The winning team, pictured below go on to play in the state final at Grange GC
