Australian Open to return to Sydney for 2021 summer
Golf Australia has announced that the 2021 Australian Open will take place at The Australian Golf Club in Sydney from 25-28 November.
The 105-year-old tournament will precede the Australian PGA Championship, which will finally make its return to Royal Queensland Golf Club in Brisbane after being postponed and then cancelled along with the Australian Open earlier this year.

“The Open has been a focal point of the Australian summer for decades and we’re extremely pleased to bring it back,” said Golf Australia chief executive James Sutherland.
“It was tough for all involved to miss out last year, particularly for players without their national championship on offer and for fans who simply want to see the best golf has to offer.”
“So we’re thrilled to have the support of our stakeholders to be able to bring the championship to life once more, particularly at The Australian for a record 22nd time.”
Like Open Championship winner, Shane Lowry, our very own Matt Jones has enjoyed two years as the reigning Australian Open champion following his one stroke win over Louis Oosthuizen at The Australian.
Jones claimed a second Open title that year to add to his 2015 win over Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth at the same venue.
