Melbourne, Victoria, AUS – Tournament officials today announced that tickets for the 2018 Melbourne World Cup of Golf are now available for purchase. The two-man team event is set to return to Australia for the tournament’s 59th edition at The Metropolitan Golf Club, 21-25 November 2018, in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
“We expect a world-class field on hand with the World Cup of Golf returning to Melbourne. The ability to play in a rare team format, the reputation of Metropolitan as a course and Melbourne as an incredible host city, as well as the stature of the World Cup as a historic international event, are all factors in drawing some of the biggest names in the game,” said Executive Director Robyn Cooper.
The Melbourne World Cup of Golf will feature 28, two-person teams comprised of the world’s top players vying for the largest prize money purse in Australian golf, with $US7 million on offer.
Ticket options range from Wednesday Pro-Am viewing tickets starting at $15, single-day competitive round tickets starting at $22 and tickets to the upgraded MacKenzie Club (Thurs-Sun) starting at $80. Weekly tickets are also available from $87, with a MacKenzie Club option priced at $295.

“I love Metropolitan Golf Club. I think it’s probably the best conditioned golf course in the world,” said 2016 World Cup of Golf participant Marc Leishman. “Some of the best golf courses in the world in a city that loves its sport. The crowds are always really good in Melbourne.”
The Melbourne World Cup of Golf brought significant global star power to the Sandbelt region in 2016, with 17 of the top 50 players in the world on hand, including the likes of Adam Scott, Hideki Matsuyama, Rickie Fowler, Jimmy Walker, Alex Noren, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Shane Lowry, Byeong Hun An, Russell Knox and more. Players outside the top 50 at the start of the 2016 event that are currently among the top 50 include Jon Rahm (No. 6) and Leishman (No. 16).
