UnLtd’s inaugural Perth Open golf tournament has exceeded expectations, bringing the industry together for the first time since lockdown to raise $45,000 and seeing 6iX take home the winning trophy.
Nineteen teams from across the industry putted for a great cause at the Wembley golf course on Friday, May 14th.
The event was sponsored by Verizon Media and saw mixed teams of four compete over 18 holes. Golfers were treated to a number of fun activations along the course from ice cream carts to Aperol Spritz and Pimms bars.
