RACV Cape Schanck Resort to host Victorian PGA Championship

RACV Cape Schanck Resort will host the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia in 2018 for the Victorian PGA Championship.

Located at the southern-most point of the Mornington Peninsula, RACV Cape Schanck Resort will officially open in winter 2018 with the Tour Professionals set to put the course through its paces from 11-14 October.

The 18 hole championship layout, designed by Trent Jones Jnr, is sure to impress the players with its spectacular ocean views of Bass Strait, huge greens and tree-lined fairways.

“We are delighted to be hosting the 2018 Victorian PGA Championship at our world class RACV Cape Schanck Resort golf course,” said Craig Peachey, Executive General Manager for RACV Leisure.

“This is the first time RACV has hosted the Victorian PGA Championship, and we are looking forward to bringing this PGA event to the Mornington Peninsula, and making this year’s tournament a truly memorable event for all Victorians.”

Being played in a pro-am format, the Victorian PGA Championship and its partnership with RACV benefits Victorians by not only bringing premier golf events to their home state but also allowing them the opportunity to tee up inside the ropes with ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia players.

Professionals and amateurs alike will be treated to a wonderful week on and off the course as they enjoy the world class facilities of RACV Cape Schanck Resort which include premier dining facilities, a luxurious day spa and world-class pool and gym facilities.

With over 180 rooms, this is the first luxury accommodation venue of its size on the Mornington Peninsula. The Resort’s 180-degree panoramic ocean views are unparalleled anywhere in Victoria.

“Local, interstate and international visitors alike will be treated to some first class championship golf and the spectacular surrounds of the Mornington Peninsula coastline at our brand new luxury Cape Schanck Resort,” added Peachey.

The ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia is pleased to be holding the Victorian PGA Championship on what promises to be an exceptional golf course.

“We would like to extend our gratitude to Craig Peachey and the team at RACV for hosting the Victorian PGA Championship at the prestigious Cape Schanck golf course, at the site of the new RACV Cape Schanck Resort,” said Simon Butterly, General Manager of Tournaments for the PGA of Australia which owns the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia.

“The Victorian PGA Championship has a long and proud history extending back to its first staging in 1924 and we look forward to seeing another chapter unfold at the new RACV Cape Schanck Resort.

“The PGA of Australia enjoys an excellent relationship with RACV with the Australian PGA Championship being played at RACV Royal Pines Resort for the past five years.
