About Golf Week

The Elders Golf Classic at Port Augusta Golf Club

The Port Augusta Golf Club conducts a “Golf Classic” during the first week of August each year. This event has now been running for 41 years. The huge success of this event over the years now has it placed, as one of the leading events on the South Australian golf calendar.

Last year we had over 1100 rounds of golf played, with some 340 visitors from all around South Australia and interstate.

Each of the seven days of golf had capacity or near capacity fields. A total of 1087 rounds of golf were played.

Nearly 200 visitors made the trip to Port Augusta to play in the event and they represented 37 different golf clubs from through out Australia.

During Golf Week over $10,000 in trophies were provided.

As of 2012, Port August Golf Week has been granted World Amateur Ranking Status.

This accreditation has come via Golf SA from the Royal & Ancient Golf Club in Scotland and will lift the profile of this event to even higher levels.

Through the Royal and Ancient Golf Club the Port Augusta Golf Week will now be promoted world wide.

We are hoping that this new status will see an increase number of high quality golfers contest this event as they chase valuable ranking points. It is now a highly respected and a major event on the South Australian golf calendar.
