Following the successful broadcast of the Australian Ladies Classic on Fox Sports for the past two years, the 2020 Professional Ladies tournament will be Free to air for all to see. The Broadcast of the final round at Bonville Golf Resort kicks off on Sunday 23rd Feb at 10am and will feature what is sure to be a thrilling final chase for the trophy.
Now in its third year, the state government backed event is one of the Coffs Coasts largest annual sporting fixtures and while the world class talent on offer is always amazing to witness, it’s a chance for The Coffs Coast to shine on a global scale.
“The event has been a showcase of the region’s natural assets, amazing array of native wildlife with many of the Coffs Coast’s finest tourism operators all playing a part in activating our region over past events. This year will be no different” Says Groups Marketing Manager Christopher Winn
Each year, a selection of marquee players get to engage with local tourism operators. 2018 featured players visiting Sealy Lookout, indulging in local seafood thanks to the fisherman’s Co-op and the Cheesemaking workshop, swimming with dolphins at Dolphin Marine Conservation Park and Stand-up paddle boarding with Wajaana Yaam Adventure Tours. 2019 featured players swinging through the forest at Treetops Adventure Park and kangaroo watching at Look at Me Now Headland.

“This year we’re working with the team at C-Change adventures to showcase some of our beautiful waterways as well as jumping on board with Waves to Wilderness on a trip deep into our heritage listed rainforest hinterland.” Christopher says,
The LET, ALPG and LPGA’s media teams capture all the action and share those pictures around the world. “Those images are invaluable. The footage forms part of the broadcast each year and the stories that our local operators are helping to bring to life reach far and wide. In 2019, a total of 964 articles and media clips generated an estimated $7.8M in associated media value.” says Christopher. That sort of exposure is positioning The Coffs Coast as a must visit destination for domestic and International travellers.
Tournament rounds will tee off on 20th February following a Pro-Am event on 19th. Players making the cut will contest final rounds on Saturday 22nd and 23rd to decide a winner.
