Vic Open (golf)

Australia’s best golfers and an array of international talent will descend upon Thirteenth Beach Golf Links in Barwon Heads for the 2020 Vic Open.

2020 will mark the eighth consecutive year that the tournament has been held in the Geelong region, on the stunning Bellarine Peninsula.

The event is Australia’s fastest growing golf tournament.

The Vic Open is the only golf tournament of its kind around the world, with the men’s and women’s fields competing on the same courses, at the same time, for an equal share in the prize money.

The tournament will again be spread across both the Beach and Creek courses for the first two rounds, before those that make the halfway cut tackle the Beach Course over the weekend.

Past champions include some of the games greats in Peter Thomson, Ian Baker-Finch and Greg Norman, and in more recent times Nick Cullen, Richard Green, Minjee Lee and Marianne Skarpnord.

The combined purse is $3 million, meaning each of the men’s and women’s fields will battle it out in Barwon Heads for a share of $1.5 Million - making it the richest golf week in Australia.

World-class golf is certainly not all that the Vic Open has to offer! During the tournament, Thirteenth Beach comes alive with a wide range of activities plus food and beverage options to keep everyone entertained.
If you can’t make it down to the tournament, a live broadcast will be available.

Hosted on Facebook LIVE and YouTube, fans across Australia and around the world will be able to follow the final 36 holes of the tournament thanks to the Vic Open’s professional broadcast team.

The live stream and all tournament-related information can be found at the Vic Open website.
