The Australian PGA Championship returns to the award-winning greens of RACV Royal Pines Resort, bringing global golfing superstars with it.

Teeing off on Thursday November 29 with a stellar list of Australian and international players competing for the prestigious Joe Kirkwood Cup, the competition will run through to Sunday December 2.

Marc Leishman is among many big name players expect to hit our shores for the event, and as the first Australian to win the Rookie of the Year Award – which he won back in 2009 – on the PGA Tour, and he’s set to keep the ball rolling at this year’s tournament.

Spectators can expect an array of entertainment both on and off the course, with plenty of family fun scheduled for the four day event – and even before it. The free Kids Day – presented by Cobra Puma Gold – will deliver plenty of fun, family-friendly activities to RACV Royal Pines, perfectly suited for kids aged 16 and under. Meet the golf stars and your favourite Warner Bros characters, have fun on the inflatable play equipment, have your face painted, take a turn in the MyGolf hitting bays, check out the roving entertainment, enjoy the petting zoo and keep an eye and an ear out for all of the fun music and games that will also be on offer. It’s all happening from 8am until 1pm.

On the green, the Million Dollar Hole is where the tournament really comes alive – players aim to ace their way to a big pay day, while fans celebrate in the sun and make the most of the great music, food and entertainment, including a dedicated Kids Zone for the little ones.

It’s free for children 16 and under to attend the tournament, making it all the more appealing as the destination for your next family day out – general admission tickets are just $25 each. Head to www.championship.pga.org.au/tickets-and-hospitality to book tickets.
