Golf Australia has announced the twelve-man team to compete in the 2017 Sanctuary Cove Trophy series played between Australia and New Zealand. This is an annual event played in a similar format to the Ryder and President Cups with the venue alternating between each country.

Australia won the first two years in 2007 and 2008 but New Zealand has been dominant in recent years and now holds a seven to three series lead. The matches this year will be played in Australia at the Sanctuary Cove Golf Cub (pictured right). This is the traditional home of the the Sanctuary Cove Trophy in Australia.

The team of senior golfers selected for 2017 is a very strong one and is certainly one of the best to represent Australia for several years. There is a blend of experience and new talent with all hoping to bring the trophy back home to Australia.

The team is selected beginning with eight automatic positions taken from the Australian Senior Ranking System. The 2017 non-playing team captain, Denis Dale, then adds his two captain's picks with Golf Australia completing the twelve-man team with their two selections. 

The 2017 Australian Senior Team is:



Row 1:  Gordon Claney VIC, Kym Olsen VIC, Greg Rhodes VIC, Ian Frost VIC
Row 2: Steve Toyne QLD,  John Davey SA,  John Banting WA, Lester Peterson NSW 
Row 3: Geoff Cranfield NSW, Peter Hannah QLD, Ken Brewer NSW, Stefan Albinski NSW
Row 4: Non-playing captain Denis Dale, vice-captain Stefan Albinski
