The PGA of Australia has announced that the Australian PGA Championship will return to its traditional summer slot, between 02 – 05 December 2021.
After a one-year hiatus due to Covid-19, the Australian PGA Championship will be played at Brisbane’s Royal Queensland Golf Club. Just over six months away, the introduction of international players to the tournament looks to be positive for Australia’s Covid-19 recovery, and the staging of the event in Brisbane highlights the ground covered since the event was originally cancelled for 2020.
The defending champion is Adam Scott, who won the tournament in 2019 with a score of 275 over four days at RACV Royal Pines Resort. The last time the Australian PGA wasn’t played was in 1995 which was due to a lack of sponsorship. The return of the Australian PGA Championship to the 101-year-old Royal Queensland Golf Club marks the first time it has been staged at RQGC since 2001 when Robert Allenby beat Geoff Ogilvy by one stroke, with an aggregate score of 273.
Gavin Kirkman, chief executive of the Australian PGA, expressed elation at the event returning to its December time slot: “After the disappointment in cancelling last year’s event, we are elated to be able to stage the 2021 Australian PGA Championship,” Kirkman said.
