The 2018 Isuzu Queensland Open will once again return to The Brisbane Golf Club this year with the dates set for 1-4 November.
The Championship is an integral part of the Australian summer of golf on the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia and will mark the 21st occasion of the tournament at the Yeerongpilly course.
Tournament Director Luke Bates said he was delighted to return to The Brisbane Golf Club which has such a rich history of hosting the championship.
“From the very first Queensland Open championship in 1925 to Michael Sim’s spectacular triumph last year, The Brisbane Golf Club is a very fitting venue due to the quality design and offers a solid test of golf to our vying professionals,” Mr Bates said.
“The return to this golf club back in 2016 certainly put a spotlight on the course with the ranking climbing an astonishing 15 places on Australian Golf Digest’s Top 100 Golf Courses to 81st, from its 96th place two years ago.”
The Isuzu Queensland Open Championship on the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia is an important tournament for Tour Professionals in Australia.
The tournament winner will enjoy the advantage of an exemption onto the Tour until the end of 2019 while the whole field will benefit from the Official World Golf Ranking Points on offer.
“It is a great privilege for the champion to lift the T.B. Hunter Cup, previously held by great names such as Greg Norman, Ian Baker-Finch, Norman Von Nida, and so many more,” Mr Bates said.
Golf Queensland acknowledges the ongoing support of all our sponsors and looks forward to the continued strengthening of our relationships this year.
