The ISPS HANDA Australian Open brings big-time golf back to the Melbourne Sandbelt. This December 1-4, Victoria and Kingston Heath Golf Clubs will play host to some of the biggest crowds since the Presidents Cup, held at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in 2019. A field of up to 288 men and women will play at the same time, on the same courses, for the same prize money of mini $1.7 million AUD. This marks the first national Open to be played as a joint event in golf.
Joining the men and women will be 12 of the best All Abilities golfers in the world playing in the Australian All Abilities Championship. The AAAC golfers will play integrated within the ISPS HANDA Australian Open field, on Friday 2 – Sunday 4 December at Victoria Golf Club, with no cut.
There’s something for everyone at this world-class event! Whether you’re with family and taking part in the free kids activities available (free entry for children aged 17 and under!), or attending with mates and sharing a beer in the Fan Village or having a hit in the golf simulator! You might prefer a glass of sparkling brut at the Chandon Bar in the Fan Village, or to walk the course and follow your favourite players, such as Cameron Smith or Minjee Lee, around the fairways of Victoria and Kingston Heath golf clubs! Or, take it up a level and enjoy the Premium Experiences available in our hospitality clubs and suites – there really is something to suit every taste.

The playing field continues to grow in strength with many Australian golfers returning home after playing on overseas tours, some for the first time in three years, to content for their national title. Cameron Smith, Adam Scott, Marc Leishman and Lucas Herbert are just a few of the confirmed player to battle it out for the Stonehaven Cup. The women’s field, including two-time Major winner Minjee Lee, 2022 Vic Open and TPS Murray River champion Hanna Green, five-time Australian Open winner and all-time golfing great Karrie Webb AO and 2022 AIG Women’s Open Champion Ashleigh Buhai, lead a strong women’s field contending for the Patricia Bridges Bowl. AAAC defending champion Johan Kammerstad is one of 12 all abilities golfers playing for the Championship Trophy (Dec 2-4).
