ISPS Handa 2019 Australian Blind Golf Championships and Western Australian Open
Collier Park Perth Western Australia
The 2019 ISPS Handa Australian Open Blind Golf Championship and Western Australian Open will be held at the Collier Park Golf Course in Perth Western Australia from Monday September 9 to Friday 12 2019.
Come "Down under" for a week of Blind Golf - Preliminary Notice
In September, Blind Golf Australia and Western Australian Blind Golf Association are staging the ISPS HANDA Australian Open Blind Golf Championships and the WA Open in Perth, Western Australia. Why not come on down and join us? Make a holiday of your trip and see Western Australia at the same time. Perth has a Mediterranean type climate and whilst September is the start of spring in Australia the average temperatures in September in Perth are about 10C over night to 20C during the day. Take some extra time - take a cruise on the Swan River, visit historic Fremantle or if you are more adventurous visit the winegrowing region of Margaret River or venture even further afield to the old whaling town of Albany and drive back along the south coast of WA. If you want more golf, WA has some magnificent golf courses both south and north of Perth - all these courses can be done in a day.
The intended programme is for the WA Open to be played on Monday September 9 and Tuesday 10, a rest or practice day on Wednesday September 11 with the ISPS HANDA Australian Blind Golf Open to be played on Thursday/Friday September 12/13. The WA Open will be played as a stableford event at Collier Park Golf Course, 6kms from Perth CBD - Collier Park is a 27 hole complex, the course we expect to play is about 6000m with a par of 70. The ISPS HANDA Australian Open, a stroke event, will also be played at Collier Park Golf Course. The course is relatively flat, the WA members play the course quite often.
Prizes for the 2019 ISPS HANDA Australian Open Blind Golf Championship will be awarded in accordance with IBGA guidelines and in the case of any play offs or ties, IBGA policy and procedures will be implemented.
Accommodation has been arranged at The Ibis Perth which is in Murray Street Perth. It is situated about 5 minutes' walk from the Perth ferry terminal where ferries can take you on the Swan River to Fremantle. Transport will be provided from/to the Ibis Perth to Collier Park Golf Course on competition and practice days.
