After 6 stagings of the Australian Women’s Classic – Bonville , between 2018 and 2024 , Bonville Management has decided it is time for others to host the event, which attracts Australian and International Golf tour pros from across the globe. The event has helped to showcase the Coffs Coast as an incredible destination to visit and helped elevate Bonville’s brand to new heights.

“We are very proud of what we achieved with the event having full Ladies European Tour status and being run jointly by LET , WPGA and GolfNSW” says General Manager at Bonville Golf Resort Brad Daymond, adding “The Australian Women’s Classic broke new boundaries, allowing Women to play an LET event in golf carts , which was previously unheard of. We enjoyed watching the development of many rising stars ,none more so than Steph Kyriacou , who won the event in 2020 as an amateur and went on to turn Pro and then be named Rookie of the Year on the Ladies European Tour. Other notable winners include inaugural champion Celine Boutier , a young French woman who has since notched up 12 other wins and has risen to the Number 4 ranked female golfer in the World.”

Dame Laura Davies was also a great supporter of the event and a prolific tournament winner , amassing 87 professional wins worldwide. The World Golf Hall of Fame inductee played 3 Australian Women’s Classic tournaments, lighting up the golf course at every turn.

“We are grateful for the opportunity the event has presented Bonville to grow it’s brand and it’s reputation in the golfing worldSays Brad “We would like to thank Local Member Gurmesh Singh and his predecessor Andrew Fraser , Destination NSW , Golf NSW , WPGA , Ladies European Tour , City of Coffs Harbour and particularly Major local sponsors Geoff King Motors and C.ex Group for their support of the event during it’s time at Bonville”. “We also could not have staged the event without the support of the Bonville Members and others in the local golfing community who opened their homes to billet most of the International players , and also gave their time to assist in marshalling throughout each event”.

 “We are happy to pass the mantle on and wish the event the greatest success in future years” says Brad. “It is time for others to enjoy and grow the event , so that we at Bonville can focus on the continual improvements to the property that helped us be awarded Australia’s Favourite Golf Course 7 years in a row and ensure our members and guests continue to receive a wonderful Bonville experience. Hopefully the event will stay in our region to further showcase our wonderful geographic location to a broad audience.”
