Nationals Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders with Australian professional golfer Grace Kim
Dubbo will host some of the best women golfers from Australia and the European Tour from March 10-12 next year, as part of the inaugural Women’s NSW Open Regional Qualifying Series.
Nationals Member for Dubbo, Dugald Saunders, said it’s great to see Dubbo has been selected to host a regional qualifying tournament in 2024.
“The last few years have been amazing for golf in Dubbo,” Mr Saunders said.
“We’ve hosted multiple competitions, including the highly successful NSW Women’s Open in 2020, and have generated great interest around the sport.
“I know the community is really looking forward to hosting more in the future.
“Earlier this year the Dubbo Golf Club hosted the ‘Western Open’ men’s regional qualifier, and I know there’s going to be plenty of interest when we have the women’s event here next March.”
Mr Saunders said Dubbo is recognised as a regional hub for sporting events in NSW, which is fantastic for the entire community because it means more people pumping money into accommodation, hotels, restaurants and local shops.
Dubbo Golf Club president David Hayes said his entire committee is excited about hosting another qualifying event next year.
“We really have had an exciting few years here at the club, with top quality players and tournaments lifting the profile of our course,” Mr Hayes said
“We certainly see the benefits as a club, but also as community members, from hosting these large events, and will be looking forward to another opportunity to showcase our course and club through the women’s qualifying tournament next year.”
