Play 9 in 2024

Play 9 is back for 2024 and it is time to win a chance to attend the international final at The Open. The R&A and Golf Australia are giving you a chance to win your way to Scotland!

To enter, simply play in a nine-hole competition at any golf club or facility across the country from 26 February - 29 April and you automatically go in the draw in the win. 

Golfers can play in as many nine-hole competitions as you like, with each round counting as an entry into the competition. 

To be eligible in the competition please ensure you have a Golf Australia account, select the tick box to receive offers and promotions and abide to all the terms and conditions which you can find linked here.

  • Does our facility need to register to Play 9 in order to be involved? No. Golfers will automatically go in the draw to win once a 9-hole round is submitted to GolfLink within the qualifying period. Automatic emails are sent each fortnight to eligible golfers, giving them the chance to opt out of the competition if they wish.

  • Can 18 holes be submitted as two entries? No. The purpose of Play 9 is for clubs to specifically schedule 9-hole competitions and encourage people to play 9-holes. It is not possible to use 9-holes from an 18-hole round for Play 9.

  • Where can I play 9 holes? Any club or facility that runs public access competition play is an option for participants. Visit Golf Australia to find your nearest facilities.

  • Do I need to have an official GA handicap? Yes. Qualifiers must have an official GA handicap.

An initiative of The R&A and Golf Australia, Play 9 is the perfect way for clubs and facilities to attract new golfers to the game, while keeping time-poor players coming back.

Golfers automatically qualify for the competition for every round that is submitted via GolfLink between 26 February - 29 April.
