I'm single. What do you do to make me feel welcome?

Historically over 100 solo entrants attend the Gold Coast World Masters. We understand that attending an event by yourself can be daunting so Go Golfing has developed a proven formula to make singles feel right at home the moment they arrive. Here is what to do…

  • Step 1: Consider Twin Share

    Twin sharing makes sense. It gets you to save on the cost of the accommodation PLUS you have someone to enjoy some spare time with. Leave your details on our Singles' Register and we'll put you in touch with other same sex single golfers looking to room share.

  • Step 2: Mingle at the Single Mingle

    Exclusive to single entrants, we've put together an informal get together before the Welcome Dinner. Get to know other single golfers in a relaxed environment that fosters laughter and friendships. Fully hosted by Go Golfing. This is a FREE event and RSVP is essential.

  • Step 3: Attend the 19th Holes

    After each round of golf there is a nightly 19th hole at East, Broadbeach. Over 80% of golfers attend the 19th hole each night. It is a great way to meet other people. Go Golfing hosts are always planning group dinners and after party functions – the fun doesn’t stop!

  • Step 4: Enjoy yourself!

    Everyone deserves a break! What better way to relax on the Gold Coast amongst like minded people who share similar interests.
