Prestigious Patche Open Back for 2018


The prestigious Patchewollock Golf Open is back again, ready for Victoria's Mallee to have a swing this Friday August 10 and Sunday August 12.


Rumours have it that the Chinese developers/golfers from last year will be back to check the progress of the condominium building project happening at the golf course, as well as add an international flavour to the serious competition.

According to organisers, the course is looking absolutely magnificent with a huge body of work done on the fairways and greens by groundsmen Mike Walch, Will Grigg [pictured] and Jacob Grigg.

A bus load of Sunraysia golfers are also expected to attend the event including expats Ron Casey and Frank Poole as well as some well-known local celebrities.

The bus leaves Mildura at 8.30am and includes a stop to view the artwork on the Patchewollock silo, the Mallee Hen sculptures and the famous Patchewollock Cup sheep racing track.

Local celebrities Tom Spriggs and Noodle Hulland will be available for selfies and signings at the silo from 10-11am on Sunday August 12 before the Ambrose event.

Security will be in attendance to ensure this is done in an orderly manner so please get there early to avoid disappointment.

Prizes on offer for the tournament include a car to be given away for a hole in one on the par 3 18th and the famous bird and bottle raffles featuring delicious local Mallee fowl and local fine wines.

Golf Course Groundsman and Walch Trophy Legacy Holder Mike Walch is very excited for the upcoming event, and joined Anita on the Country Viewpoint for more information.


Patchewollock's golfing weekend is now a destination event drawing golfers from all around the world, come along and join in the fun at one of the world’s most picturesque courses.
