She is one of 54 players taking part in an inaugural co-sanctioned event between the Australian and China Ladies Professional Golf associations.

The 2015 Australia Classic will be held at Twin Creeks Golf and Country Club.

Hillier will be vying for the title and her share of the $150,000 on offer.

Because it is a limited field event of 54 players, there will be no cut and all players will take home a cheque.

The 24-year-old will be heading overseas to compete on the Ladies European Tour.
