New partnership complements the existing PGA Championship event held at RACV’s Royal Pines Resort
“RACV members will now be able to experience premier golf opportunities in their home state as well as enjoy exclusive RACV Golf member benefits,” said Neil Taylor, RACV managing director and CEO.
The Victorian PGA Championship, part of the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia, will move to the newly expanded RACV Cape Schanck Resort in October 2018 and new Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series events will be held at the RACV Healesville Country Club and RACV Torquay Resort.
RACV Goldfields Resort will also host a new two-day pro-am in the same format as the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth event. Healesville and Goldfields will also host two new Ladbrokes Legends Tour events.
“RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast has been a fantastic host of the Australian PGA Championship and we look forward to extending our events to RACV’s Victorian Resorts,” said Gavin Kirkman, CEO of the PGA of Australia, which oversees the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia.
“RACV’s new Cape Schanck facilities and golf courses are first class and therefore the natural fit for staging the Victorian PGA Championship as well as our new pro-am events.”
