LIV Golf is bringing LIV Golf League events to Australia beginning in 2023 as part of its 14-tournament schedule.
As part of a multi-year commitment, the Grange Golf Club in South Australia’s capital city will play host to the country’s debut LIV Golf event, LIV Golf Adelaide from 21-23 April next year.
“Passion for sport is at the core of Australian culture, and LIV Golf is proud to bring its global league to a country deserving of the world’s top competition,” commented LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman.
“This is an opportunity to grow the game with generations of Australians while connecting them with star players like Cameron Smith who are building a new platform for golf around the globe.
“There is massive potential for Australia to play a bigger role in this great sport, and I couldn’t be more excited to showcase Adelaide for our league’s debut year.”
The Grange has hosted major professional events including the West Lakes Classic, where Norman claimed his first professional victory in 1976.
A host site for the South Australian Open and multiple PGA events, the club has also welcomed marquee amateur tournaments including the Australian Amateur and Australian Interstate Team Series, as well as Australian Lady Amateur events.
More recently, the venue hosted the 2019 and 2016 Women’s Australian Open, with reported record crowds.
Club President, Nicolle Rantanen Reynolds, added: “The Grange Golf Club is excited to host the world’s best golfers at our course. It is recognition of our excellent facilities and our ability to host world-class golf tournaments.
“We are looking forward to working with LIV Golf and the SA Government to deliver an outstanding event.”
