ASEG-PESA WA: 32nd Annual Golf Classic: Joondalup Resort

Friday, December 6, 2019

ASEG-PESA 32nd Annual Golf Classic: Joondalup Resort Golf Course

The ASEG-PESA Annual Golf Classic is one of the most pleasant and well-attended oil and mineral industry golf tournaments held in Perth with recent years enjoying attendances of 100+ players.

This years tournament will be hosted at Joondalup Resort, on Friday 6th December 2019. The Joondalup Resort golf course, designed by the internationally renowned Robert Trent Jones Jr, presents a tough, uncompromising layout, featuring great variation in setting and style. The spectacular golf course in Perth sweeps across dense bushland, cuts through steep limestone quarries and skirts picturesque lakes, to present surprises and challenges at almost every turn. One minute you are playing an approach shot beneath a 30-metre limestone cliff, the next you are adapting to the fresh ocean breeze on an undulating links style fairway.

After the charity success from the 2018 Classic, ASEG-PESA has decided to partner again with our charity of choice, Parkerville Children and Youth Care. The charity is a 115-year-old non-for-profit organization, based here in WA. With 1/4 girls and 1/6 boys affected by child abuse and trauma by the age of 18, Parkerville has a huge role within our community; to raise awareness of child abuse, provide services for those in need and grow the network of support in providing a future for our WA children, young people, and families. As a proud supporter of the charity, we will run the day to raise as many funds as possible and are inviting your company to take part in it. There will be a silent auction, competitions, prizes, and raffle.


Teams of 4 will play ambrose rules, and mystery hole handicap weighting’s applied. The schedule for the day will be as follows:
