Brett Serjeant says he has never won much, apart from a meat tray, but last Saturday night at the Yamba Golf & Country Club the meat tray win was trumped by a new Mazda 2 Hatch from Ken Casson Motors in Grafton.
Mr Serjeant said he was shocked to win, but not necessarily surprised when his key opened the padlock to win the car.
After being drawn as one of 10 from the 100 finalists selected during the 10-week promotion, he felt his chances of winning improved as each finalist picked their key-containing envelope.
“When I sat down I looked at the 10 envelopes and decided which one I wanted to pick,” Mr Serjeant said.
“The first six people didn’t grab the one I wanted and, when I opened the envelope, I noticed the padlock and key were masters, and I thought I was going to win.”
Mr Serjeant had high praise for the club: “The golf club is an awesome club; the staff are always friendly as are the management.”
The club’s general manager, Luke Stephenson, thanked Ken Casson Motors. “Working with Ken Casson Motors was seamless; they are a major sponsor and supporter of club.
“And the members definitely supported the club through what is historically a tough time – February to March – when there are not too many visitors.
“It has helped our trading through that time and we will be looking to do it again in February/March 2017.”
