The Australian PGA Championship will retain its traditional end of season place on the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia schedule when it tees off from 30 November to 3 December.

Being played at RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast the Australian PGA Championship will cap off an incredible year of golf in Australasia whilst also be one of the first tournaments on 2018 European Tour schedule with the tournament again co-sanctioned.

With a festival of golf atmosphere the Australian PGA Championship is sure to produce another exciting tournament in 2017.

“The Australian PGA Championship has always been a favourite amongst the Australian players. It is a chance for our leading players to come home and celebrate the end of the season,” said Gavin Kirkman, CEO of the PGA of Australia.

“Since moving to the Gold Coast this festival atmosphere has been enhanced by a number of initiatives across the week including Cobra Puma Orange Crush Kids Day, Greg Norman Medal, the SONIQ Million Dollar Hole and live music.”

“This festival of golf has been well received by our players and the European players as well as sponsors and most importantly the fans.”

As the final event on the 2017 ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia schedule the Order of Merit champion will also be decided. In recognition of their success in the 2017 the Order of Merit winner will be rewarded with starts in international tournaments in 2018 as well as the Von Nida Medal.
