LIV Golf announces return to Australia as first part of 2024 schedule release

Loads of fans, a party hole with a DJ, a close team competition down the stretch and Patrick Reed drinking from a shoe made LIV Golf Adelaide 2023 the upstart circuit’s quintessential event.

Commissioner and CEO Greg Norman and South Australia Premier Peter Malinauskas announced on Friday the league is hoping to rekindle that atmosphere by returning to the Grange Golf Club, April 26-28, 2024. LIV Golf Adelaide is the first event on the 2024 schedule to be announced and will be held the same week as the PGA Tour’s Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

“That’s what LIV should be, in its heart and its DNA, I think that’s what it can be every single week, and will be when people start understanding what the real deal is here,” said DeChambeau of league’s Aussie debut back in April. When it came to fanfare and entertainment, Adelaide was by far LIV’s best event of 2023.

“The inaugural event drew tens of thousands of attendees from interstate and overseas and saw tickets snapped up almost as quickly as they were released,” said Zoe Bettison, the South Australian Minister for Tourism, via a release.

An economic impact report stated that of the 77,076 attendees across the event, 41 percent of ticket purchasers came from out-of-state. Hospitality tickets for LIV Golf Adelaide 2024 go on sale Nov. 15.
