LIV Golf returns to Adelaide after a wildly successful debut in South Australia last year that saw the tournament named World’s Best Golf Event in 2023 by the World Golf Awards.

Last year’s official attendance total of 77,076 at The Grange Golf Club was the highest attended event of the 2023 LIV Golf League season.

The par-3 12th, nicknamed the Watering Hole, will once again be a popular spot for fans with its stadium-like party atmosphere.

Cameron Smith, winner of the 2022 Open Championship, and his all-Australian Ripper GC team that includes Marc Leishman, Matt Jones and Lucas Herbert enter as the hometown favourites.

The Rippers will look to improve on their eighth-place finish last year; they currently rank eighth in the season-long team standings.

Jon Rahm and his expansion Legion XIII come off their second team win of the season at LIV Golf Miami.

Dean Burmester of the all-South African Stinger GC team comes off his first LIV Golf individual victory in Miami, having defeated Fireballs GC Captain Sergio Garcia on the second playoff hole.

Garcia has been involved in three of LIV Golf’s nine individual playoffs and remains in search of his first LIV Golf win.

Torque GC Captain Joaquin Niemann leads the season-long Individual Championship race, while Bryson DeChambeau and his Crushers GC team leads the Team Standings.

Defending LIV Golf Adelaide champion Talor Gooch shot consecutive 10-under 62s in the first two rounds last season en route to his first LIV Golf title.

Gooch’s win in Adelaide was the first of his three LIV Golf wins en route to winning the 2023 Individual Championship.

Dustin Johnson and his 4Aces GC team look to defend their team title in Adelaide.

The Grange’s two internationally rated courses (West and East) will be used as a composite layout for LIV Golf Adelaide.

Holes 9-10 and 12-18 of the East course, redesigned by LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman in 2012, will provide hole Nos. 1-9 for the composite course.

The back nine of the West course, redesigned by former Australian pro Mike Clayton, will provide hole Nos. 10-18 for the composite course.

The East course has been ranked among Australia’s top 50 courses and was the site of Norman’s first professional win in 1976.

The West course hosted the 2016 and 2019 Women’s Australian Open and is a quintessential sand belt layout.

The 161-yard par-3 12th, nicknamed the Watering Hole, provides fans with a stadium-like party atmosphere.

The most difficult hole in 2023 was the 253-yard par-3 3rd, playing to a stroke average of 3.181; the easiest hole was the 514-yard par-5 7th, playing to a stroke average of 4.382.
