ANZ Ladies Masters

The Australian Ladies Masters is a golf tournament that is played in Australia. It is one of the leading tournaments on the ALPG Tour and has been co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour (LET) since 2001. Between 1997 and 2000 it was an event on the LPGA Tour.

In 2007 the Masters was the richest women's golf tournament in Australia, with a prize fund of AUD 800,000. Although the 2008 prize fund dropped to AUD 600,000, the tournament remained the richest in Australia. The 150 strong 2007 field consisted of 55 ALPG players, 55 LET players, 18 LPGA of Korea Tour players, 3 LPGA of Japan Tour players and 19 sponsor's invitees. The tournament was founded in 1990 as a 54 hole stroke play event, and was originally called the Australian Ladies Masters. It expanded to 72 holes in 1994. Australia's most successful women golfer Karrie Webb has won the event a record seven times.

    To be an editor, as I was.

    Where the sewage flows from the village,
    And the empty cans and garbage are dumped,
    And abortions are hidden.
    —Edgar Lee Masters (1869–1950)
