Over 250 people across the advertising industry joined the UnLtd Open golf competitions in Melbourne on 27 October and in Sydney on 9 November.
The annual event, sponsored by oOh! Media and Pedestrian Group, unites the industry to play golf, have fun and raise funds for the work that UnLtd do supporting charities helping young people at risk.
In Melbourne, Insticator team took home the trophy with The Trade Desk securing second place and ACM third place.
In Sydney, it was Nova Entertainment Co taking the win with ARN in second place and PHD in third place.
Individual prizes for nearest to the pin and longest drive competitions went to Andrew Donnoli, Nick Smith and Ariel Li in Melbourne and to Lachlan McDivitt, Shae Bonney, Bec Baldwin, Luke Jones and Annie Hugo in Sydney.
The golfers were treated to plenty of surprises along the 18 holes by the hole sponsors, ranging from mocktails and slushies to donuts and gelato. Golfers also had a chance to donate for a professional golfer to take their drive at the oOh! Media hole, to raise funds for UnLtd.
Says Paul Sigaloff, chief revenue and growth officer at oOh! Media: “We absolutely love being a part of this day with UnLtd and sponsoring this important event. It’s always a blast when the industry comes together, and it’s even more rewarding to shine a light on raising funds for young people at risk.”
The competition was played in Ambrose style and was open to all levels of golfers with over 60 teams across the industry taking part.
Says Chris Freel, CEO of UnLtd: “This event has become a key part of the calendar and it’s great to see so many men and women from all corners of the industry coming together. Big thanks to our sponsors oOh! Media and Pedestrian Group and to all our hole sponsors for making the day so fun and to everyone who joined us to swing, drive and putt for good. We look forward to taking the UnLtd Open to New Zealand for the first time next week!”
