2024 Australian Livestock Expansion Appears Doubtful

LIV Golf’s plans for expanding in Australia seem to be on hold, as the Adelaide tournament is crowned the year’s best golf event. After a highly successful debut in Adelaide last April, the LIV Golf hierarchy was considering adding another Australian tournament next year.

Queensland, the home state of Australian golf sensation Cameron Smith, expressed interest in hosting a tournament. However, a preliminary 2024 schedule obtained by Sports Illustrated (SI) reveals just one Australian event in Adelaide.

The Grange course in Adelaide’s west appears to be the chosen venue for LIV Golf, even though SI reported it wasn’t among the three confirmed courses for the next year on the preliminary schedule.

The report notes that the geographic location is the only detail provided for 11 of the 14 LIV tournaments listed. The schedule lacks specific dates, but the idea of opening the season in Adelaide in February seems unlikely, as SI reports that Mayakoba in Mexico will host the first tournament next year.

South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas has received assurances that LIV Golf will continue in Adelaide, despite the peace deal between the Saudi-backed league and the PGA Tour. The specifics of this deal, which aimed to end the golf “cold war” between LIV and the U.S. PGA, have yet to be disclosed.

LIV’s Adelaide debut tournament saw around 77,000 spectators and earned global acclaim. It has been recognized as the best golf event of the year by World Golf Events, a part of the World Travel Awards.

South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas expressed his enthusiasm for the news, stating, “It was our first. But not our last,” on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, while sharing the award announcement.

These annual awards are decided through votes from golf travel and tourism industry professionals, media representatives, and the public.
