SGA is pleased to announce plans for an exciting new golf event to be held on Australia’s most famous golfing precinct, the Melbourne Sandbelt. The inaugural SGA Sandbelt Classic will be staged from October 2 – 6, 2017, in the week after the AFL Grand Final. The host cubs are among the most exclusive in Australia featuring three of the top 10 golf courses in the country.

The event will commence on the number 1 ranked golf course in the country*, the world-renowned West Course at the exclusive Royal Melbourne Golf Club. The second round will be played at the host of the 2016 World Cup of Golf Kingston Heath Golf Club (ranked # 2*).  After a well-earned rest day on Wednesday October 3, the field will tee up at the spiritual home of the Australian Masters, Huntingdale Golf Club, followed by the final round at Peter Thomson’s home club, the superb Victoria Golf Club (ranked # 8 in Australia*).
