Bigger and Better in 2016!
The 2016 ALPG season will be showcasing some of the best female golfers in the world when they
travel to our shores and vie for their share of $3.58 million in prizemoney on offer.
ALPG Executive Director, Karen Lunn, was extremely pleased with the 2016 schedule saying “The ALPG is delighted with our Tour schedule, which will see our members and players from across the globe compete for increased prizemoney in 2016.”
“I would sincerely like to thank all of our sponsors and partners for their continued support of the ALPG, in particular to Dr Haruda Handa for his support of the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open and the ISPS Handa New Zealand Women’s Open; RACV for their continued support for the RACV Ladies Masters; Oates; and Golf Victoria for their great work in securing additional government support for the Oates Victorian Open which will enable significant increase in the prizemoney on offer to both the women and men.
“2015 has been an extremely exciting and successful year for Women’s Golf across the globe. The emergence of Minjee Lee has been fantastic for Australian golf. I am confident that combined with our ALPG Pro-ams, our Tour schedule will attract quality players from all around the world to our shores, and give the Australian public a great opportunity to witness the quality of our women players and overseas visitors.”
