GOING DOWN UNDER: LIV Golf announces ‘MULTI-YEAR’ commitment to bring league golf to Australia
LIV Golf have announced a multi-year commitment to bring LIV Golf League events to Australia beginning in 2023 as part of its 14-tournament schedule.
The Grange Golf Club in South Australia’s capital city will play host to the country’s debut LIV Golf event, LIV Golf Adelaide, 21-23 April, as many of the biggest stars in the sport deliver golf’s exciting new global team competition to fans Down Under.
LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman, said: “Passion for sport is at the core of Australian culture, and LIV Golf is proud to bring its global league to a country deserving of the world’s top competition.
“This is an opportunity to grow the game with generations of Australians while connecting them with star players like Cameron Smith who are building a new platform for golf around the globe. There is massive potential for Australia to play a bigger role in this great sport, and I couldn’t be more excited to showcase Adelaide for our league’s debut year.”
Premier of South Australia, Peter Malinauskas, said: “Securing the first Australian LIV Golf tournament is an exciting coup for South Australia.
“As Premier, I am determined to lure more major events to South Australia, which means more visitors, more economic activity and more jobs. This is exactly what our economy needs as we emerge from the pandemic, in particular our hospitality sector which has done it tough over the past couple of years. LIV Golf will bring some of the world’s best golf players to SA for an event the likes of which our country has never seen before.”
