Australasian PGA Tour announces 2022/23 schedule
Following two years of battling the fallout from a worldwide pandemic, the Australasian PGA Tour has announced its first full season of events in almost three years.
The 16-tournament schedule totals more than AUD$8 million and is highlighted by the Australian PGA Championship, which will again be played at Royal Queensland in Brisbane on November 25th followed by the debut of the combined men’s and women’s Australian Opens in Melbourne.

Both tournaments will be co-sanctioned by the DP World Tour along with the New Zealand Open in March 2023.
“We’re delighted that the schedule has come together like this,” said Tournament Director, Nick Dastey.
“To have two co-sanctioned tournaments with the DP World Tour is fantastic, with the winner getting automatic entry to the DP World Tour, a sensational opportunity for any young player.”
“There’s a number of long-standing tournaments in the schedule that are back again for the 2022/23 season and we’re excited to see the next wave of golfers making Australasian golf history.”
“It’s a strong schedule that offers lots of opportunities for players, and the pathways are incredible.”
The season will kick off in mid-October with the $200,000 WA PGA Championship in Kalgoorlie followed a week later by the WA Open in Perth. Player will then head back to the east coast for the Victorian and Queensland PGA events in November.
The early 2023 schedule will once again be dominated by the successful mixed-gender TPS events throughout Victoria and New South Wales in January and February before players head across the Tasman for the Kiwi double-header at the $1.4 million NZ Open and NZ PGA.
The NSW Open in mid-March will mark the last of the regular season events prior to the yet-to-be-announced season finale.
