  • The Women’s NSW Open

“This agreement will assist us in showcasing our great game to a larger audience than it has for quite some time, and with cutting-edge production, we believe the viewer experience will unmatched.”

Trent Miller, General Manager Television SEN, said, “We look forward to providing innovative, entertaining coverage from some of the best golf tournaments in Australia. 7plus is the perfect platform to showcase the excitement and drama as Australia’s top golfers battle it out on the most challenging and picturesque courses in regional NSW.”
