Current host to the Australian PGA Championship and now host to the RACV Gold Coast Challenge, the championship course has undergone a two-year, complete re-design by renowned golf course architect, Graham Marsh. The renovations have seen every green, surrounds, landing area, and bunker replaced to bring the course up to championship standards while also retaining the capacity to cater for golfers of all abilities.
The Green combination course, which plays host to the PGA and ALPGA, re-opened for the 2015 Australian PGA Championship and proved to be a challenge to even the most astute and professional golfers. From the championship tees it measures 6,690 metres, with six par 4s that measure more than 400 metres, four par 5s that are over 500 metres long and a 201 metre par 3. It all adds up to a tough series of holes when you factor in the parade of bunkers that come into play on most holes, and the far-reaching swales surrounding a slew of elevated greens.
The Gold combination course is comprised of the Gold nine and the Blue nine. The blue nine, located on the western side of Ross Street, proves that shorter is not always easier in golf, and has it’s own distinctive challenges. While the longer hitters may find some par 4s reachable from the tee, they are surrounded by strategically placed bunkers, meaning even the slightest miss off the tee will likely find you in trouble. The challenge on this nine is to play smart.
Royal Pines is where the players come to play, and where fervent golfers can experience a challenging layout, combined with a 5 star environment. With tight, tree-lined fairways and undulating greens, each nine-hole course has its own distinctive challenges, requiring a unique skill set in order to have a successful round. Afterwards, enjoy a casual meal and cold beverage on Tee’s lower terrace, overlooking the first and 10th holes of the tournament course.
