Mercedes-Benz has identified golf as its international core sports platform. At an amateur level, Mercedes-Benz hosts a tournament that is currently played by over 65,000 players across 37 countries called The MercedesTrophy . Players participate initially at a Dealer event and then the top qualifiers are invited to participate in a National Final in each country which then culminates in the World Final event played in Germany each year.
Since 2012 GOLFSelect has been appointed by Mercedes-Benz Australia to deliver all of the golf related elements of the MercedesTrophy program. This has involved a number of key areas:
- Liaison with each dealer in relation to their local dealer event including being a central point of contact for event related questions and coordination/distribution of merchandise
- Advice regarding the development of player guidelines and rules pertaining to the MercedesTrophy in Australia
- Tournament direction, match committee responsibility and management of all golf related elements of the 3 day, 2 round National Final
Based on our experience GOLFSelect has been a pleasure to work with combining a strong golfing expertise, professionalism in engaging with both customers and dealers and an overall willingness to ensure the success of this marquee event in the Mercedes-Benz calendar.
We have found their attention to detail is of a very high standard which is of paramount importance with any of our events. We look forward to continuing our strong association with GOLFSelect into the future.
On behalf of the entire Let's Beat Bowel Cancer (LBBC) Committee, we extend our sincere thanks to you for your contribution to this year's LBBC Golf Classic.
Thank you for your ongoing enthusiasm, energy and professionalism, not to mention your shared commitment to ensuring the event is always delivered to the highest standard possible. Please extend our sincere thanks to Malyce, Matthew, Megan and Maureen for their contributions as well. You are a wonderful team of friendly, helpful and genuinely good people and we genuinely value the partnership we share.
Thank you for continuing to support the vital work of LBBC and we look forward to a great 2016.

I have worked with Golf Select since 2013. Gary and his team have gone above and beyond to ensure our Mercedes-Benz trophy days are run to perfection. This year I was fortunate to have GOLFSelect on site to assist and photograph our Golf Day.
Gary’s presence was invaluable particularly with the registration process which can be hectic and sometimes problematic.
Having someone there with such an in-depth knowledge base regarding golf and the Mercedes-Benz trophy rules and regulations ensured our customers had a first-class experience.
The customers who attended loved the photographs which they were able to view while having lunch.
Gary and his team are a joy to work with and always willing to go the extra mile when needed. I would not consider running an event without using GOLFSelect.
Early this year Mercedes-Benz Toorak enlisted GOLFSelect to help plan and run our annual Golf Day. Thanks to the team at GOLFSelect and the wealth of experience and knowledge they hold, the day went incredibly smoothly and without a hitch.
The team hold strong golfing expertise and an adaptable nature which makes them an absolute pleasure to work with.
Due to the relationships they have built and the passion they have, their involvement in your golf day will only lead to a well organised and quality event.
Gary and the GolfSelect team are the best in the business when it comes to running corporate golf events. From concept and securing whichever top course you want, to planning and ensuring the day is a resounding success, every single aspect is expertly dealt with. They make it easy - all you have to do is enjoy the day! Their friendly and professional approach gives the perfect balance and provides flexibility with the various aspects of the day. Their online invitation system is excellent, as are their on course photos and mobile phone app, with live scores throughout the round, which is a real winner!
GolfSelect are Australia's "go to" people for golf days, tours and Gary's course photography. Gary's reputation precedes him - integrity, knowledge, expertise and a great person - it is a pleasure dealing with him and his team.
I highly recommend GolfSelect and wouldn't use anyone else.
As a children’s charity supporting disadvantaged children with their learning, Ardoch Youth Foundation relies on community support and fundraising to deliver support to children in need.
Ardoch was delighted to work with Gary Lisbon and the team at GOLFSelect to run our first golf day. Gary and the GOLFSelect team came to us highly recommended by another event organiser who stated they were the best in this area. We were not disappointed!
Gary and his team are highly professional, have strong expertise and made navigating our first golf day a breeze.
Additionally, their local knowledge, extensive network, photography and specialised golf day app made the day a success. All the more impressive given we were driven off the course with lightning half way round! Looking forward to an even better year this year!
Many thanks to the team at GOLFSelect for another outstanding performance at the PACCAR Invitational Golf Tournament.
From shortlisting the initial course recommendations and preliminary checks right through to the final speech, GOLFSelect were an invaluable resource, both on and off the course.
Your attention to detail delivered the highest quality CD and hard copy invitations, innovative prize suggestions, personalised score cards and website response facilities.
This, when combined with your seamless management of the registration and scoring process, ensured that our management and their guests were able to focus solely on enjoying their day. PACCAR customers are discerning and expect the best.
With the friendly and professional assistance of GOLFSelect, the PACCAR Invitational Golf Tournament continues to set the benchmark within our industry.
We look forward to working with you again in the future.
An enormous thank you from me for all your help at our golf day on Monday, you were both just fantastic.
Your welcoming smile to the players and professionalism at check in made for a very smooth operation and your continued support throughout the day was much appreciated and made for a great day.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you guys throughout the process and your management, photography and mobile app were appreciated by everyone.
Thank you very much for your part in making it yet another very successful Epworth Golf Day.
GOLFSelect and their Corporate Golf offerings are second-to-none. Gary Lisbon and his team are a pleasure to work with and ensure all aspects to a corporate golf event are covered professionally, efficiently and effectively.
From a Club's point of view, GOLFSelect provide services which assists event administrators, who are sometimes inexperienced with the game of golf, with a great product; event invitations, RSVP's, client contact pre-event, event administration, player registration, mobile scoring, live leaderboard, event photography etc.
Gary, thank you for assisting with Corporate Golf events at The Metropolitan Golf Club - it is a pleasure dealing with GOLFSelect.
I have experienced Gary's golf event management services on several occasions and without doubt Gary and his company GOLFSelect provide the BEST golf day experience available.
The service from the minute you arrive to the end of the day is nothing short of first class and the use of modern technology throughout the day with the Live Leader Board App is not only a great initiative but a real team building tool that keeps everyone involved.
Gary and the team at GOLFSelect are the best in the business and I can highly recommend Gary for all your golf event requirements.
Just a short note to let you know that we thought you did an excellent job at The SSY Sydney Golf day. The feedback we receive from our clients is always good but this year you involvement made a difference which was noticed.
From an SSY point of view the difference it made to us was enormous, the time we saved by not having to organise the day made a big difference and we so enjoyed the day itself because we had so much time to spend with our clients instead of having to run around organising and sorting everything out.
We are very pleased we decided to have you on board this year and sincerely look forward to making you a permanent fixture for our annual golf days from now on. Again many thanks.
I would also like to thank GOLFSelect who joined us for the first time this year. Gary Lisbon and his team ensured the day ran smoothly and players were well-organised, particularly with the introduction of a new digital scoring system. Their enthusiasm and organisation was greatly appreciated.
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to you both for all your hard work organising the day. The feedback from the customers and staff was great.
Photos look great too.
Thanks again for your support with the day and look forward to having one next year.
We have been using GOLFSelect to run our corporate golf day for the past ten years.
In that time the GOLFSelect team have enabled us to run our major entertaining event which has been enjoyed by all. Year after year our clients say what a great time they had and how well run the day was.
The GOLFSelect team take care of everything making it possible for us to spend our time with our clients rather than on running the day.
GOLFSelect is an outstanding and professional golf event management organisation capable of rising to every challenge. The Ilhan Food Allergy Foundation ran its golf day in Marysville. The challenges were significant. They had to truck in the infrastructure to help run the golf day, select local produce to support local businesses, organise transport for all the golfers and run the type of event normally reserved for the sandbelt courses of Melbourne, a credit to GOLFSelect.
A quick email to thank you very much for the organisation with regards Friday’s golf day. The day went smoothly from start to finish with the clients having an excellent time with great feedback already.
Apart from the weather which is obviously out of everyone’s control, it couldn’t have been better organised.
Thanks again and look forward to working with you in the future.
I just wanted to send an email to say a big thank you for such a fantastic day on Friday. It was so professionally run and everyone was so impressed with both the venue and the running of the day.
We have has so much positive feedback so I just wanted to pass that on and say thank you.
We are not sure how much we raised yet but will let you know.
Thanks again for helping our first Hewison Foundation Golf Day be such a huge success.
We've been using GOLFSelect for over 7 years and were always happy with their services.
Reliable, practical and easy to work with. I can highly recommend GOLFSelect to anyone planning a corporate golf day.
Gary and his team will most definitely add value to your event!
