Don’t Take Our Word For It…

I must congratulate Go Golfing on another successful Wrest Point Masters, a superb week of golf. I have managed to bring home trophies on 3 occasions but the biggest trophy to date is the new friends. It’s been just as much fun for Lynn as a non-golfer.

Cliff & Lynn Almond

I have attended similar tournaments in the past but the Wrest Point Masters is beyond doubt the best organised event I have been to! The attention to detail with bookings, transport, presentations and course selection was great.

Peter Clarke

I’ve played in this event for a number of years. The tournament is very well organised with terrific social events and wonderful camaraderie. Both courses are outstanding and a challenging test to your golfing ability. What more could you ask for!

Gary Leslie

Although I did not play anywhere near as well as I would have liked, the companionship on the greens and the camaraderie afterwards made for a memorable week. I certainly recommend this tournament to all club golfers.

WREST POINT INTERNATIONAL MASTERS FAQ’s

 

Can Singles Play In this Tournament?

YES. Historically over 100 entrants who attend the Wrest Point International Masters come alone as a single golfer. We understand that travelling to a new destination to attend an event can be daunting so Go Golfing has developed a proven formula to make singles feel right at home the moment they arrive, we recommend you follow these steps;

  1. Attend the Singles Mingles before the welcome dinner. Valid for all entrants who have registered as a single. Get to know other single golfers in a relaxed environment that fosters friendships and enjoyment. This event is hosted by Go Golfing and entry is free – RSVP is essential.

When: 5.30pm – 6.00pm, Sunday 22 January
Where: Onyx Bar, Wrest Point
What to bring: Bring your name lanyard which will be provided to you at Tournament Registration.

 

  1. Twin Share your accommodation. Twin sharing makes sense, firstly it allows you to save 50% of the cost on your accommodation PLUS it gives you someone to explore all that Hobart has to offer. Go Golfing has a singles register (click here). Sign your name up and we will introduce you to other single golfers looking to room share. Simply let us know if you find someone compatible and Go Golfing will look after the rest.

 

  1. Attend the 19thhole. After each round of golf there is a nightly 19th hole at Onyx Bar, Wrest Point. Over 80% of golfers attend the 19th hole each night and it is a great way to meet other people who are also attending the event. Join others in the Onyx Bar and then kick on for dinner. Go Golfing hosts are always planning group dinners and after party functions – the fun doesn’t stop!

 

  1. Enjoy yourself! Leave your fears at home, they don’t belong at this event. You deserve a break and what better way to relax in Hobart amongst quality people who share similar interests to you.

Is this event just for A Grade golfers?

It is for club golfers of all standards. There are 15 divisions for men and women based on age and handicap. At the Wrest Point International Masters you are guaranteed to play with people your own age and standard.

 

Is there a maximum handicap?

YES. The maximum handicap for each division does not restrict you from entering the tournament but does mean that higher handicaps must play off the maximum permitted handicap as stated below;
