There’s plenty of movement around the greenkeepers shed at Bonville Golf Resort lately as the team gears up in preparation for the 2022 Australian Women’s Classic which is set to return to the North Coast from 21st – 24th April. Now in it’s fourth year, the Co-sanctioned Ladies European Tour and WPGA event carries a prize purse of $350,000 and remains a highlight of the tour for players from across the globe.
“Each year we work closely with the Ladies European Tour team to prepare a championship golf course and present an International quality, tournament ready product.” Says General Manager Brad Daymond.
“The greens team is critical to the success of this event and are preparing the golf course to an even higher standard” he adds.
Noted for launching the professional career of Aussie Stephanie Kyriacou who recently earned her LPGA card, the tournament has boasted names like Hannah Green, Dame Laura Davies and Christina Kim, as well as recently in-form Aussie, Sarah Kemp. Celine Boutier won the tournament in 2018 and though she will not return this year, 2019 champion, Norway’s Marianne Skarpnord is set to start.
