Golf Australia

Golf Australia is the governing body for 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 include conducting national tournaments and championships including the Australian Opens, managing the Rules of Golf and the national handicap system, and developing programs and opportunities to engage as many people as possible into the game.

Golf Australia’s involvement with The Longest Day of Golf commenced in 2016 following approval by the Golf Victoria Board to support this skin cancer fundraising initiative. From that time onwards, Golf Australia (Victorian office) has encouraged all Victorian clubs to promote this unique event to club members and support those players who join in this challenging 72-hole golf marathon.
