Gippsland Super 6 makes move to Warragul

Following a COVID-induced delay, the Gippsland Super 6 will return to the 2021-22 schedule with a new home at the Warragul Country Club in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley, 60 minutes south-east of Melbourne.

The PGA of Australia announced the move from the tournament’s previous home at the Yallourn Golf Club along with the return to the original dates from November 11-14.

The Super 6 format will see the field of 132 players reduced to the top 50 and ties following a 36-hole cut. On Saturday, the field will again be reduced to just the top 24 who will advance to the final round of match play on Sunday.

2021 champion, Marcus Fraser, is excited about the prospect of playing at the new venue.

“I thoroughly enjoyed playing Yallourn at the start of the year but it’s always exciting as a player to head to a new venue,” said the three-time European Tour winner and 2016 Olympian.

“I’ve got no doubt that the Gippsland Super 6 will continue to be a success at Warragul Country Club and hopefully I’ll be one of the two players left to contest the final late on Sunday.”

The field will be vying for a total purse of $137,500 and entry for spectators is free.
