The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism together with PGA of Australia have announced the dates and venue for the  2017 Fiji International - August 17 to 20 at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course.

The Fiji International will be staged during Fiji's tourism peak season and the August 2017 date is anticipated to attract some of the best players in the world to the tropical destination.
"The Fiji International showcases Fiji to the world, so we want the world to see Fiji at its finest and what better time than in August," said Hon. Faiyaz Siddiq Koya, Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism.
"We hope that the allure of Fiji in August along with a prime position in the world, golf schedule will again ensure a quality field of Professionals competing in the fourth edition of the Fiji International."

"Now that the Fiji International is on the European Tour schedule we took a more global approach to scheduling," said Peter O'Malley, Chairman of the PGA of Australia.

"We believe the August date will better enable some of the leading European Tour players to include the Fiji International on their playing schedules."

"The three stagings of the Fiji International have produced excellent champions in Steven Jeffress (2014), World Number 20 Matt Kuchar (2015) and World Number 27 Brandt Snedeker (2016) and we are looking forward to seeing who will emerge the champion in August 2017."
