Victorian PGA Championship
In a history dating back to 1924 the Victorian PGA Championship has seen a number of great names come through and etch their names on the Jack Harris trophy and we are pleased to bring the Vic PGA back bigger and better than before. The 2021 Vic PGA is scheduled to take place for the first time at the beautiful Moonah Links Resort from 4th – 7th, February 2021. It will be the third of a four-event swing in Victoria with Moonah Links again hosting the PGA Tour of Australasia the following week for the Moonah Links PGA Classic (9th – 12th February). A huge two weeks at Moonah Links.
As stated by the defending champion Campbell Rawson, playing the championship at Moonah Links Resort is “definitely a chance to restart and kick-start things this week.”
2020 has been a year of highs and lows in more ways than one. Australian golf’s inspiring start to the year is one few will forget. With seven PGA Tour of Australasia events scheduled in the first quarter of 2021 to complete the 2020/21 season, the Victorian PGA Championship will be a sought after title as the players try to secure a high finish on the all-important PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit and the various oversees tournament opportunities (including Majors, World Golf Championship events and exemptions to final stages of Korn Ferry and European Tour Qualifying Schools) that come with winning or finishing at the pointy end of the OOM.
The 2021 Victorian PGA Championship will be played in a ProAm format similar to world-famous events such as the Pebble Beach Pro Am on the PGA Tour or the Dunhill Links Championship on the European Tour. The amateurs will be playing for the Victorian PGA Celebrity Amateur Challenge.
