Northern Territory - Play 9 at the 2018 Australian Open and chance to play at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland

You’re just nine holes away from the experience of a lifetime.

Four golfers from the Northern Territory will win the chance to play nine holes at The Lakes Golf Club on Day 3 of the 2018 Australian Open, and you could be one of them.

All you need to do is play in at least one official nine-hole competition between 1 September and 21 October 2018.

You will need an official Golf Australia handicap, because the four winners will be the best two male stableford scores and the best two female stableford scores from around the NT.

The winners will fly to Sydney on Friday 16 November 2018, stay for two nights, receive a gift pack and can attend the Champion’s Cocktail Function – all courtesy of Golf Australia.

As a further incentive, Golf Australia has announced that, in 2019, two Australian golfers will fly to Northern Ireland to compete in the R&A's nine-hole championship final at Royal Portrush – the venue for the 148th Open – the day before championship week begins.

The experience of playing nine holes at Royal Portrush, a venue to which the championship returns for the first time in 68 years, just before the world’s best get into their work, will go to the best individual male and female stableford scores at the second playing of Golf Australia’s national Play 9 final. This event will take place on the Saturday of the 2018 Australian Open at The Lakes Golf Club in Sydney, with the qualifiers from each State and Territory eligible for the prize!

Good luck golfers!
