Royal Pines Golf
Play the Course
RACV Royal Pines Resort operates a 27 hole composite golf course with 3 x PAR 72, 18 hole combinations (Gold, Green and Blue).
The Course Design and Environment
The major revamp of the existing Australian PGA Championship and Australian Volvik Ladies Masters tournament layout is now building momentum as the first stages of the refurbishments are due to finish in time for Decembers PGA Championship event.
The course, following the 2 year 27 hole refurbishment, designed by Graham Marsh, will see the grasses being improved to Winter Green on areas other than the greens and the highly regarded TifEagle replacing the original Bermuda 328 grass on the greens.
The complexity of works includes the neutralising of the acid sulfate soils in order that their necessary disturbance during earthworks will not impact environmentally on the adjoining waterways.
RACV Royal Pines Resorts championship layout provides three challenging 18 hole course combinations, with undulating terrain and magnificent greens in a lush tropical setting.
Australian PGA Championship
RACV, in partnership with the PGA of Australia, will host the Australian PGA Championship at RACV Royal Pines Resort for the next five years. In November 2013 we saw Gold Coaster Adam Scott win the tournament by four shots from American Rickie Fowler, with a final score of 14 under par. This year the event will be held from the 11th until the 14th of December.
