Play 9 at the 2019 Australian Open

For the third successive year, we’re offering you the chance to win the experience of a lifetime and play like a pro at the Australian Open.

28 lucky golfers from around the country will play nine holes at The Australian Golf Club on Saturday 7 December 2019 – Day 3 of the 2019 Australian Open – and you could be one of them.

Winners will travel to Sydney on Friday 6 December 2019, stay for two nights, receive a gift pack and can attend the Champion’s Cocktail Function – all courtesy of Golf Australia.

A male winner and a female winner of the national Play 9 final will then get to play in the 2020 9-hole challenge hosted by the R&A at Royal St George's, England.

Clubs and facilities around the country are running qualifying competitions from 6 May – 10 November 2019. If yours doesn’t yet have one planned, there’s plenty of time for persuasion!

You can play in multiple competitions, but you must have an official Golf Australia handicap to be eligible.
