Golf Australia says the Australian Open will move to Royal Sydney this year and be played from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1.

After three years at Sydney's The Lakes Golf Club, where Australian veteran Peter Senior won last year, organizers said Thursday the tournament will return to Sydney's Rose Bay area for the first time since 2008 when Tim Clark became the first South African since Gary Player to win the Australian title.

Royal Sydney has hosted the Australian Open 13 times, with Player among the champions there.

Earlier this month, six-time Australian Open champion Jack Nicklaus confirmed the Open would move to The Australian Golf Club in 2014, and that Nicklaus would take part in several design changes to the course.
