In achieving our goal of raising the Global Golf4 Cancer flag in every golfing continent, our campaign in Australia and Oceania will feature some of the finest golf clubs and golf resorts in both Australia and New Zealand. The 'Australia and New Zealand 4-Flag Campaign' was conceived in December 2019 when Royal Melbourne, widely regarded as the pre-eminent golf club in the Southern Hemisphere, hosted the 13th edition of The Presidents Cup. Nick Edmund, the Founder of Global Golf4 Cancer, attended the event and met with four of the most prestigious clubs in Victoria and Tasmania.
Deferred due to 2020’s pandemic, a formal launch of the campaign is now planned for 2021, with further GG4C-introducing visits to golf clubs across Australia and New Zealand occurring in 2022. (More details to follow)
Among the first clubs to be introduced to the ‘Australia & New Zealand 4-Flag Campaign’ are Royal Melbourne and Kingston Heath in Victoria, and Barnbougle and Cape Wickham in Tasmania.
Each of the participating venues is being invited to support Global Golf4 Cancer in any way they are able, and to raise a Global Golf4 Cancer awareness flag on their 4th hole on the four special 'GG4C Awareness Days' (the 4th of February – World Cancer Day, the 4th of April, the 4th of July and the 4th of October). Clubs are of course welcome to fly the flag on any additional occasions or events of their choosing.
