SYDNEY: The Australian PGA Championship will be played on Queensland’s Gold Coast at the Royal Pines in November, officials said on Tuesday.


The tournament is moving from its regular spot as one of the final events of the PGA Tour of Australasia and the OneAsia seasons to its new venue from November 7-10 to attract a quality field of players.


“Since announcing the new home of the championship we’ve received some great feedback from a number of areas and we’re looking forward to creating a new legacy for the tournament on the Gold Coast,” PGA CEO Brian Thorburn said.


“Our priority for this year is to ensure we position ourselves to maximise opportunities for the Australian PGA Championship, in terms of attracting both a quality field and the fans.” Thorburn said the PGA has already approached a number of high-profile international players and confirmed talks will continue at next month’s US Masters at Augusta.
