9-hole golf teeing off at ANZ Stadium in December

For 20 years, it has been home to some of the biggest sporting and concert events this side of the Murray and now the ANZ Stadium will be transformed into a 9-hole course this December for the 2020 G9 Stadium Golf.

Golfers will be able to play from elevated tees on Level 1 and Level 4 in the stands of ANZ Stadium to the nine greens below, which have been carefully curated by Head Curator Graeme Logan and his team.

As part of a prize pool that will be up for grabs for the overall individual and team winners, event partner Mitsubishi are sponsoring the 5th hole at the Stadium.

Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry says the unique golf event is a perfect way to relieve some of the stress accumulated from the challenging events of 2020

“Golf is one of the highest participation sports in Australia with some 1 million Aussies regularly swinging a club and over 10.5 million rounds of golf played annually around the country,” he said.

“2020 G9 Stadium Golf is a unique concept that can be played in a safe and controlled environment and which allows groups of people to test their golf skills and just have a bit of fun.”

The 2020 G9 Stadium Golf will tee off from 6.45am Friday 4 December with the first tee time at 7.30am each day and the last tee time 7.45pm Sunday to Thursday or 9.30pm Fridays and Saturdays.

And if you’ve worked up a thirst, the Stadium Golf Clubhouse will be available at the north-western terrace of ANZ Stadium for golfers to enjoy a beverage.

Tickets are on sale now from Ticketek starting from A$79 for adults and A$59 for children with discounts available for groups.
