The inaugural Jeep Pro Am Tour kicked off in May, with four regional final’s held across Australia. The first Jeep regional was played at Moonah Links in Victoria, with further regionals contested over the past six months in New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia.

The professionals compete over four days for their chance of the $100,000 in prizemoney and will be partnered by an amateur who won their way to the final via one of the four regional events.

Competitors from across Australia will compete in this weeks’ event, the field also set to include some of Australia’s greatest sporting stars.
