Golf Australia formed in 2006 following the amalgamation of the Australian Golf Union and Women's Golf Australia and is the National Sporting Organisation overseeing the future of golf in Australia.
Our goal is to raise the level of interest and participation in the game from grassroots golfers through to the elite levels, spectators, volunteers and associated industry bodies. Key responsibilities incorporate managing national tournaments and championships including the Australian Opens as well as rules and handicapping. Working in a commercial and inclusive manner with government, business and community, Golf Australia ensures the value of golf is understood and supported in all policy and business decisions.
Golf is a game for life where participation contributes to a healthy Australian community.
R&A Rules Limited has delegated Golf Australia with the role of administering the Rules of Golf and the Rules of Amateur Status in Australia. The R&A is the international governing authority for golf. Rules duties at all Golf Australia championships, including the Australian Open, are overseen by the Golf Australia Rules Committee with assistance from PGA Tour and state personnel.
