The Australian Ladies Masters was introduced to the Australian golfing calendar in 1990 and sponsored by Daikyo Australia. 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 its permanent home the RACV Royal Pines Resort. The Philip Morris sponsorship ended in the year 2000 and ANZ secured the title rights in 2001 - 2010.
Event Queensland’s on going commitment along with co-title sponsor's Volvik and the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV) has enabled the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters to gain the support of profile players annually. 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 Tuohy Associates with an on going commitment from RACV, J Golf and television partner ABC1.
