ADELAIDE, June 2: The 2017 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open will be played at Royal Adelaide Golf Club from February 16-19 2017.

Hot on the heels of the raging success of the event’s return to Adelaide in February, world No.1 Lydia Ko and defending champion Haru Nomura have already signed to compete.

The Royal Adelaide layout is one of several outstanding courses in Adelaide and follows on from the Grange Club’s role as host in 2016.

Nomura was a surprise winner this year but she displayed a high level game and quality golf swing and once she had recorded her first LPGA Tour title she would again win in San Francisco a couple of months later.

Ko is of course the world number one at present and has a substantial lead over the injured Inbee Park but with the likes of Brooke Henderson, Ariya Jutanugarn and Minjee Lee quickly staking their claim for recognition amongst the game’s elite then next year’s Australian Women’s Open is likely to be an outstanding contest.
