27 - 30 November 2014
The Emirates Australian Open is Australia’s most prestigious golf championship with a rich, century-old history that draws the world’s best players down under to vie for the Stonehaven Cup. In 2015, it is the first event on the Open Qualifying Series and will offer three places in The Open at St Andrews.
Since the first Australian Open in 1904, the championship has evolved from an event of limited local standing to a stage for many of golf’s greatest-ever players to battle for the title. The names engraved on the trophy are synonymous with Major Championship history and include Peter Thomson, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Gene Sarazen, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Greg Norman, Adam Scott and the defending champion, Rory McIlroy.
The championship returns to The Australian Golf Club for the first time since 2007 following an extensive re-design last year by Jack Nicklaus.
There are three qualifying places available at the 2015 Emirates Australian Open. Places go to the leading three players (not otherwise exempt) who finish in the top 10 and ties.
