To quote from today's AGU press release,
It is official, Moonah Links, Open Course on the Mornington Peninsula has been chosen by the Australian Golf Union to host the 2003 Holden Australian Open Championship.
Moonah Links, Open Course has been designed specifically with the Open Championship in mind by an internationally renowned team that knows what successful contemporary international competition is all about.
In Peter Thomson’s words; “Moonah Links will challenge the Champions. This will make for a gripping Holden Australian Open, and a great spectacle for our visitors and worldwide TV audience. There will be a brand new $40 million 4.5 star hotel for our Holden Australian Open visitors.
Pretty brave move by the AGU given this years problems on the Thursday. If it blows (and it can blow down there) there could be carnage, in fact about 6822m of carnage.
