The world’s best golfers will be heading to Kingston for the World Cup of Golf next month.
International superstars of the game will be on show at Kingston Heath Golf Club when teams from 28 nations compete for $8million in prizemoney.
The World Cup of Golf is one of the oldest and most prominent team events and is now in its 58th event.
The event is on November 23-27 in the heart of Melbourne’s renowned sandbelt at the Kingston Heath Golf Club.
Tickets are now on sale, with children under 16 admitted free when accompanied by a ticketed adult.
Kingston CEO John Nevins said crowds of thousands are expected to flock to Kingston to enjoy the event, providing a boost to local businesses as fans stop to eat, drink and entertain in the region.
“The World Cup of Golf is a great showcase for the whole area and we’re thrilled that such a prestigious event is happening right here in Kingston,” Mr Nevins said.
Visitors to the event are encouraged to take public transport to the event with a free bus service operating between Moorabbin Station and the course.
A shuttle bus will also be provided from the main carpark, in Pietro Road, to the golf club.
Temporary parking restrictions will be introduced in surrounding areas to ensure local streets are not used for all-day golf parking.
Residents in the immediate area will receive parking permits to exempt them from these restrictions, which will be in place 7am-7pm Monday 21 November to Monday 28 November.
