THE PGA of Australia announced on Tuesday the Australian PGA Championship will be played on the Gold Coast at RACV Royal Pines from 7th-10th November.

Moving from its spot as one of the final events of the Australasia PGA Tour, Brian Thorburn CEO of the PGA said the scheduling positions the event to attract a quality field for its inaugural year on the Gold Coast.

"Since announcing the new home of the Championship we've received some great feedback from a number of areas and we're looking forward to creating a new legacy for the tournament on the Gold Coast," Thorburn said.

"Our priority for this year is to ensure we position ourselves to maximise opportunities for the Australian PGA Championship, in terms of attracting both a quality field and the fans.

"With the date now confirmed we can get on with business, which will mean doing everything in our power to create one of the most successful and popular events on the Gold Coast calendar."

Thorburn confirmed the PGA has already approached a number of high profile international players, and said talks will continue at the upcoming US Masters. 

"We're also looking at a number of other initiatives to boost the off-course atmosphere. RACV Royal Pines provides us with a wonderful opportunity to enhance the entertainment value and we're looking forward to working with our stakeholders to bring some of these new ideas to life."
