“We are thrilled to organise the QLD PGA Championship in Toowoomba once again this year. The City Golf Club has been and continues to be a great partner of this tournament,” said Simon Butterly, General Manager of the Tournament Division of the PGA of Australia.

Last year’s tournament was no exception as Queenslander Tim Hart fired a final round 61 to force a playoff where Germany’s David Klein emerged victorious.

“The Championship is always a highly anticipated event for the region. We are looking forward to providing another opportunity to showcase the great talent on offer each and every year,” said Ed Britnell, President of City Golf Club.

“We have continued to make improvements to our facility over recent years and with the addition to the course changes, the new driving range and mini putt-putt ensures we have something to offer everyone who visits the City Golf Club.”

The Coca-Cola QLD PGA Championship will be played from 16-19 March for AUD$125,000 and Official World Golf Ranking points.
