This is a one-of-a-kind tournament that features a mix of traditional and sand greens, where your game is set to be tested.

For the serious and not-so-serious, there are also prizes for the highest 9-hole and 18-hole stableford scores at each round, overall series winners and major random prize draws.
That’s right, this outback golf adventure could see you road-tripping home with more than $1M in your back pocket.
