The 2017 Oates Vic Open is almost here and it's gearing up to be Golf Vic's biggest yet! The event, hosted at Thirteenth Beach Golf Links, is set to tee off from the 9th – 12th of February 2017, and is expected to attract thousands of people and bring a big revenue boost for local businesses.
The event is highly anticipated amongst players from around the world with it being the only professional event that runs both the women's and the men's championship simultaneously at the same venue. The event has also recently received a funding boost from the Victorian Government, bringing the prize pool to $1 million that is split equally between both the men and women's divisions.
It has been a pleasure to work with Golf Victoria on the 2017 Oates Vic Open. As always, they have worked hard to make sure that it is an event not to be missed, not only for the competitors but also for spectators who are allowed to walk the fairways with the players.
The tournament offers activities and food and drinks from local vendors along the course, and with kids under 17 being free it makes it a fantastic event to bring the family to.
