Discover Golf’s Biggest Party
Celebrating 20 years, the Gold Coast World Masters Golf Championship is set to host the biggest party ever offered to golfers with 7 nights of fun and entertainment for the 600 plus participants.
In true Go Golfing fashion, the celebration’s list of events includes glamorous dinners accompanied by premium beers and wines, Australia’s best comedy acts, nightly events overlooking the golf course, trivia nights and a country and western extravaganza. Festivities will culminate with a gala presentation dinner where more than $110,000 in golf and lucky draw prizes are presented.
Tournament director Go Golfing Managing Director, Peter McCarthy, reveals what has made this tournament so successful and what is in store for golfers and their partners this year. “Our tournaments are about golf and fun. A golf tournament is a golf tournament. Everyone knows what to expect there, and we deliver. But it is the fun we deliver in our tournaments that blows people away.”
“Our participants love the games, the social gatherings and the entertainment we put together for them. It is that memory that stays with them for years to come. It is about the friendships they’ve made and the laughs they’ve shared. And this is what Go Golfing is about and this is why so many of our participants come back again and again.”
“And this year is going to be bigger than ever. It is our 20th anniversary and we want to use this milestone as a way to thank our faithful clients and sponsors, past and present, who have made this tournament such a success and wonderful experience.”
The support of new major sponsor Ladbrokes has paved the way for significant upgrades to the four host courses. For the first time ever, the private, members-only The Pines at Sanctuary Cove will be included in the four course rotation.
The Ladbrokes World Masters Golf Championship is open to all male and female golfers aged 35 plus with an official golf handicap. Competition is in 15 divisions based on age and handicap and playing with golfers your own age and standard is among the tournament’s popular traditions. All golfers compete in the 4-round stableford event with ‘A’ grade golfers also eligible for the best gross.
The World Masters always has outstanding prizes for the golf competition and the final night lucky draws are keenly anticipated. Eight cars, a trip to the US Masters, golf tours to international destinations have all been given away. There’s $30,000 in lucky prizes guaranteed to be won this year.
