More Aussie summer of golf dates locked in
Confused about the Australian summer of golf? Well you’re not alone. Border closures and state by state restrictions have taken a huge toll on our local schedule.
The latest iteration of the season was due to kickoff in Western Australia in late November with the WA PGA Championship and WA Open. However, those events have now been pushed back to April 2022, which in turn means the NT PGA Championship will move to an early May timeslot next year.

The 2021/22 season will now open with the Victorian PGA Championship from December 9-12 at the Moonah Link Resort followed a week later by the Gippsland Super 6 at its new home at Warragul Country Club.
“It has clearly been a challenging time for the Tour and our players but as border restrictions continue to ease we are more and more confident of delivering high quality fields across the country for the 2021/2022 season,” said PGA of Australia Tournaments Director Australasia, Nick Dastey.
“There are still some dates to lock away and some exciting announcements coming in the weeks ahead but more than anything we are happy to provide a run of tournaments for our players as we look beyond this pandemic and into a strong future for the PGA Tour of Australasia.”
Dates are still to be confirmed for the Vic Open and NSW Open.
