Golf Australia has announced that its men’s and women’s Australian Opens will be held concurrently from this year, with the former to also be sanctioned on the DP World Tour for the first time.

In what Golf Australia claims marks a first for world golf, the two events will be played alongside one another from December 1 to 4 on the Melbourne Sandbelt. Victoria Golf Club will be the primary host venue across all four days of the tournament, with Kingston Heath Golf Club to host on the first two days.
