All sorts of things are happening in my area this weekend... actually, the PGA is happening! So, tents are going up, staging vans are blocking views, cranes erected.... its all happening!
Adam Scott, a local, ranked 17 in the world was supp to play the event but has had to withdraw from the event. He injured himself while surfing this weekend at the beach near our house. Ouch!
I have players in the competition living in the holiday unit across from me... its all very cool!
I will be out and about and will get some snaps for you!
The course is described (according to the the PGA website) as this:
Australian PGA Championship is played at the Hyatt Regency Coolum, which boasts a superbly challenging and very beautiful 18 hole course. Designed by the renowned Robert Trent Jones Jr , the golf course covers over one third of the resort.The scenery of this course is stunning. Each hole has its own uniqueness - rolling linksland type holes run beside the Pacific Ocean, and the woodland holes are set in groves of native melaleuca and eucalyptus trees, parkland and rainforest.
The 72par, 6263 metre championship course has been officially rated by the Australian Golf Union 73 from the championship tees, and is rated as one of Australia's top resort course by Golf Digest Magazine (February 2002).
