WA Open returns to the golf calendar

Golf WA has confirmed that the WA Open and the WA PGA Championship event in Kalgoorlie will return in 2022.


After an 18-month absence from the calendar due to the states border closures the WA Open will be held at the Royal Fremantle Golf Club between April 28 and May 1.


CEO of Golf WA Gary Thomas said they were delighted to have their flagship event back.

“The thought of having top-level golf returning on a brilliant course and with fans able to watch is something that we might have taken for granted in the past, but certainly not now.


“We’ve all gained perspective from the past 18 months to two years but we’re moving forward in a positive way, starting at Royal Fremantle later this month. It’s going to be amazing to have what we love back at centre-stage and we can’t wait.”
