The 1990 and 1991 Daikyo Australian Ladies Masters was played at the Palm Meadows course on Queensland's Gold Coast enjoyed instant success and US Open Champion Jane Geddes won back to back titles.

In 1992 with sponsorship from Philip Morris Limited the Ladies Masters moved to the Royal Pines Resort. The Philip Morris sponsorship ended in the year 2000 and ANZ secured the title rights in 2001 - 2010.

Co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour and Australian Ladies Professional Golf the Ladies Masters is truly an international event with some twenty-five countries represented.

The event is promoted by TA Golf with an on going commitment from Tourism and Events Queensland, City of Golf Coast, JTBC Golf and television partner ABC.
