We are looking forward to welcoming some of the world’s best golfers to our most famous sandbelt course and to showcasing Melbourne and Victoria to a global audience”, commented Minister Delahunty.
Senior Vice President and Global Managing Director-IMG Golf, Guy Kinnings, remarked: “Australian golf is fortunate to have such outstanding support from the Victorian Government and we are delighted and privileged to have the opportunity to stage the Masters at Royal Melbourne for the first time. It provides a great synergy with our “best in class” positioning to see the world’s best players on the best courses on the sandbelt.”
“The Royal Melbourne Golf Club has a rich history of hosting major tournaments. We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome the Australian Masters for the first time and to seeing a top class field test itself on our famous composite course,” said Richard Allen, Captain of The Royal Melbourne Golf Club.
The Australian Masters will be sanctioned by the PGA Tour of Australasia and Brian Thorburn, CEO, remarked: “The PGA Tour of Australasia and our players are delighted to have the opportunity to return to the magnificent Royal Melbourne Golf Club and we extend our thanks to the Victorian Government and IMG for their continued commitment to Australian golf.”
