Women’s Golf Magazine Feature

I am excited to be featured in the Spring 2022 edition of the Women’s Golf Magazine.

It was great to talk about the Emajin Golf story and our journey since January 2021.

With a mission to make golf inclusive, accessible, flexible, and fun to the thousands of golfers across Australia, we at Emajin Golf have thoroughly enjoyed bringing innovative ideas and value-based access to golf for all skill levels and backgrounds.

Firstly, a very big thanks to the amazing team at Emajin Golf, Ben Doney, Jamie Mattick, Allan Haughie, Portia Hill, and Andrew Marchbank, who so strongly support our vision every step of the way, and without whom this wouldn’t be half as fun!

Proving golf-based networking opportunities to build strong connections and business growth has been a great success.  A big thanks to all our keynote speakers who have shared their insights and experiences with us – Paul Graham, Peter Gould, Rich Harvey, John Mattick AO.  And thanks to the partnership with a number of great golf courses across Australia for hosting our events.

To our members, who have been so fantastic, thank you for your support. We have so enjoyed working with all of you right from getting into golf clinics, official handicaps, online competitions, business networking and so much more.

Building golfing communities from the hundreds of thousands of golfers across the nation has been so rewarding.

“Emajin Golf is run by golfers, for golfers and this is at the heart of everything we do.”

– Raj Narayan, Founder & CEO, Emajin Golf

Giving Back to the community

At Emajin Golf we believe in giving back where we can and using golf as a vehicle to raise funds to support a number of worthy causes.  We have had the privilege to be involved with and support the following Australian charities and fundraising initiatives this year:

  • Emajin Charity Golf Day supporting the Australian Red Cross (NSW & QLD) Floods Appeal
  • Girls from Oz supporting education and employment for Aboriginal girls and young women
  • Shitbox Rally supporting Cancer Research
  • The Australian Children’s Music Foundation
  • Charlie Teo Foundation
  • Bayley House
  • Nomads Golf Day supporting Bowel Cancer and Jack Newton Junior Golf
  • Avondale Golf Club Junior Trust Fundraising Event
  • Sir Roden & Lady Cutler Foundation running ambulance and hospital transport services for those in need

Australian Red Cross NSW & QLD Floods Appeal

Emajin Golf’s Flood relief golf day in support of the Australian Red Cross and all those that had been affected in the NSW/QLD floods was a massive success. All proceeds from the day that included a full round of golf at the prestigious Concord Golf Club, followed by a two course meal, prizes, raffles and much more were donated to the Australian Red Cross Flood Relief. All those that attended had an amazing time whilst feeling great that they have supporting a worthy cause.  We raised $7,900 from this event.

Girls from Oz

The Girls from Oz (g-oz) program, uses a tried and tested performing arts engagement model developed over 30 years by the Australian School of Performing Arts, to engage and re-engage females living in some of the most at-risk communities in Australia.  We have supported our partner Atria Real Estate, to support g-oz provide employment outcomes for students in remote Australia, particularly Aboriginal girls and young women.

Shitbox Rally

Emajin Golf is proud to support the Shitbox Rally. Raising money for Australia’s most exciting cancer research projects that have the highest and potentially significant impact on those affected by cancer.

2022 RESEARCH GRANTS Supported by proceeds of the Shitbox Rally
FY 2020/2021

University of Melbourne (Associate Professor Michael Griffin) – $443,055: Pancreatic and colorectal – A new therapeutic opportunity for gastrointestinal cancers

University of Melbourne (Associate Professor Daniel Buchanan) – $447,752: Colorectal – Linking gut bacteria to the development of early onset colorectal cancer using multi-omic profiling

The University of Adelaide (Professor Lisa Butler) – $433,228: Prostate cancer – A patient-derived discovery platform for companion biomarker development in prostate cancer

University of Western Australia (Associate Professor Pilar Blancafort) – $449,356: Breast cancer – Identification and targeting of a new subtype of oestrogen receptor breast positive breast cancer

University of Sydney (Dr Jenny Yingzi Wang) – $450,000: Acute myeloid leukemia – Developing a novel targeted therapy for treating chemotherapy-resistant leukemia

BNI Gala Supporting Australian Children’s Music Foundation

The power of music should never be underestimated. Australian Children’s Music Foundation raises money for children wanting to get into and pursue music as a career, a very worth cause!

Charlie Teo Foundation

Charlie Teo Foundation supports brain cancer research.

Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer.  The worst type of brain cancer, GBM, is also the most common and has an average survival of only 15 months from diagnosis.

Bayley House

Whilst Bayley House has been providing support and services for over 70 years, there is significant work still to be done. Every day, people with disability are stigmatised, marginalised, underfunded and excluded from communities. The results of this are devastating and include the fact that 50% of people with intellectual disabilities are chronically lonely.

Bayley House provides exceptional services that actively support people living with a disability to realise and reach their goals and dreams.

Avondale Golf Club Junior Trust Fundraising Event

We were thrilled to attend this event with Emajin member and Avondale GC member Michael Lam and contribute $1,800 towards the exceptional work that Avondale Golf Club is doing with their junior program and providing young golfers the opportunity to complete, play, develop and grow their golfing careers.

Sir Roden and Lady Cutler Foundation 

This foundation provides much needed services for hospital transport and ambulance services to those in need.  We at Emajin were thrilled to make a contribution of $3,600 towards this cause at their fundraiser golf day at Concord Golf Club.

If you would like to involved in spporting worthy causes or have a worthy cause that you would like us to consider, then please do not hesitate to contact us at clubhouse@emajin.golf

Australian Golf Digest Article June 2022

Big news: Emajin Golf is once again featured in the Australian Golf Digest June 2022 issue, which is out now!

This time, our Founder, Raj Narayan, was asked by Brad Clifton, Editor-in-Chief of the magazine, whether corporate golf was making a comeback. Her answer was definitely YES!

However, she says, the focus has shifted from large one-off, single-company corporate days to regular golf networking events. It’s becoming clear that golf as a business activity is most effective when people meet to network with some consistency. That’s how long-term, strong relationships are built.

We have had an incredible response from our members and their business partners to our golf networking events. Businesspeople from different industries are coming together to connect and build solid working relationships over golf. It’s no longer just for the elite.

Emajin is all about connectivity and inclusivity, which is why our events have a range of ways to get involved, from the full 18-holes to a ‘try golf’ clinic.

The Australian Golf Digest dubbed us the New Age of Golf, and you can read more about this fresh approach to uniting business and the great game in the magazine.
