The Australasian Legends Tour has over 60 tournaments in 2017 which are played in Australia, New Zealand, Samoa, Fiji and New Caledonia.

Players such as Ian Baker Finch, Peter Senior, Simon Owen, Rodger Davis, Mike Harwood, Peter Fowler and Wayne Grady, all have been world class professionals winning numerous major championships around the globe over the past 40 years. They are just some of the top names that regularly play on the Legend Tour.
The first two rounds of the tournament will be played at the fantastic new Sheraton Deva championship course in Bourail, then a day off to travel back to Noumea, followed by the final two rounds at the Tina golf course.
All competitors will play the four rounds of the tournament. There will be one professional and 3 amateurs in each group for the first 3 rounds, then the final round will be a seeded draw on score with the two leading pros paired with the leading two amateurs and so forth through the field.
