The most lucrative event on the adidas PGA Pro-Am Series, Redcliffe’s Optilease Pro-Am, took the award at a gala night on the Gold Coast.
No other club has claimed successive victories in this category since the awards started in 2009.
“We, as a team, are super proud to once again accept this award for our 2022 Optilease Redcliffe Pro-Am for Tournament of the Year,” Director of Golf Chris Adnams said.
“We raised the bar again this year to deliver a $65,000 purse, but it was the event planning and execution that really made this event shine.
“To go back-to-back for this top award is an amazing achievement by the entire team here at Redcliffe GC.”
Sixty-eight players entered the two-day (July 14-15) tournament with Brisbane-based Aaron Wilkin taking the top prize of $11,687 with a 13 under par total of 129.
He beat last year’s winner Doug Klein (68, 65), a touring pro who works in the Redcliffe Pro Shop, Sam Brazel (66, 67) and Peter Martin (67, 66) who had a nine under totals of 133.
Mr Adnams said after the competition “players were thanking us for putting on such a good event.

“We had two players shoot rounds of 64 on the first day (Thursday) which was windy," he said.
“On Friday it was picture perfect conditions and the party hole was great fun.”
The future of the pro-am is secured for 2023 and 2024 with Optilease signing a three-year sponsorship with Redcliffe Golf Club.
