Dates for 2017 Isuzu Queensland Open finalised

POSTED ON March 27, 2017 @ 4:23 pm

The 2017 Isuzu Queensland Open is set to tee-off at The Brisbane Golf Club from 26-29 October.

The Championship is a part of an action-packed Australian summer of golf and forms part of the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia.

Tournament director Luke Bates said Golf Queensland was pleased with this year’s dates and expected a strong field of competitors due to its placement on the professional golfing event calendar.

“The unique format allows both professionals and amateurs to compete against each other to join the list of champions,” Bates said.

“It is a strong stepping stone for golfers and the likes of Jason Day and Greg Norman have played in the Championship on their way to become the world’s number one golfer.
“Last year we had an amateur win the championship, ironically when it was last at The Brisbane Golf Club in 1991 Stuart Appleby won as an amateur.”

The Isuzu Queensland Open Championship on the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia is an important tournament for Tour Professionals in Australia.

“The tournament winner will enjoy the advantage of exemption onto the Tour until the end of 2018 while the whole field will benefit from the Official World Golf Ranking Points on offer,” Mr Bates said.

Simon Butterly, General Manager – Tournament Division, for the PGA of Australia, which oversees the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia added, “the Isuzu Queensland Open has become an integral event on the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia and in recent times has seen many of its champions go on to forge successful careers.

“Nick Cullen won in 2013 prior to his breakthrough Australian Masters victory, in 2014 Andrew Dodt used his win at the Queensland Open to reinvigorate his career and is now back on the European Tour. Most recently 2016 champion Brett Coletta has turned Professional and already made his debut on the PGA TOUR at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

“We are excited to watch the 2017 edition unfold and where the champion will progress their career.”
