Escape for a week of golf and fun to celebrate Hobart World Masters 18th year.

In the words of our clients, the Hobart Masters in January is just the perfect holiday to kickstart the year. You’ll find everything here; fantastic food and wine, a thriving live music scene, lively markets, a great bunch of people to play with whilst enjoying the best competition golf Hobart delivers.

IT’S TIME FOR A HOLIDAY

IDYLLIC SUMMER WEATHER

Escape the heat of Summer and enjoy ideal temperatures in the mid 20’s everyday. The fresh Tasmanian air will inspire you to breathe a little deeper for those great shot making moments.

A FOOD LOVER'S PARADISE

Hobart is renowned for fresh produce, wine and spirits. Enjoy absolute waterfront dining along the iconic River Derwent or find your very own spot to unwind with a glass of local wine at one of the many bars / restaurants in town.

STAY WHERE IT ALL HAPPENS

Stay at the centrally located Wrest Point which hosts tournament dinners & social events every night. Over 300 golfers choose Wrest Point with it's central location & quality service from staff that already know why you are here. The event has been hosted at this hotel for the past 17 years.

HOBART HAPPENS IN JANUARY

January is the perfect time to visit Hobart. Arrive early to enjoy Sydney to Hobart yacht race celebrations and the Taste of Tasmania wine and food festival or extend your stay to catch the Cygnet Folk Festival.

I have attended similar tournaments in the past but the Hobart World 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. And great fun. Thank you.

Peter Clarke

I must congratulate Go Golfing on another successful Hobart World Masters, a superb week of golf and catch up with friends from years before. Both Royal Hobart and Tasmania Golf Clubs were in great condition and have some of the best par 3s, 4s and
5s you will see in Australia.

Royal Hobart Wrest Point Internatoinal Masters

Royal Hobart

A Rich History Since 1896

Hobart Golf Club was formed in 1896 and became as it is now known as Royal Hobart in 1916. Royal Hobart has hosted a number of major Championship events including the Qantas Australian Open in 1971 won by the legendary Jack Nicklaus. The course presents itself in great condition all year round and features tree line approaches to several holes.

The Competition

Entry is open to all male and female golfers over the age of 35 with an official handicap. All golfers play a 72 hole single stableford event while “A” grade golfers are eligible to compete for the best stroke/gross.

 

Age groups & handicap divisions

You are guaranteed to play with golfers your own age and standard.

35-55    A,B,C grade (max h’cap 30men; 40 ladies)

56-65    A,B,C grade (max h’cap 30men; 40 ladies)

66+       A,B,C grade (max h’cap 36men; 45 ladies)

Handicap verification

In partners­­­hip with GOLFLink (Australia) and International Golf Associations the tournament committee will review the 6 month playing history of all entrants. The tournament committee reserves the right to amend player handicaps. 

The ‘slope handicap system’ will be utilised to calculate player handicaps for the Championship rounds. Under the slope system, the difficulty of the golf course and the tee blocks played from determine a player’s handicap prior to the start of each round.

 

Pace of play

For the enjoyment of all players, field sizes will be limited and experienced marshals will monitor pace of play. Tips to improve speed of play and the penalties for slow play will be provided to all players.
