RACV Royal Pines Resort has three 18 hole combination golf courses, including the Graham Marsh re-designed Championship course which hosts the Australian PGA Championship and the RACV ALPG Players Championship.
Made up of the Green and Gold nines, the championship course has tight fairways, undulating greens and immaculately manicured swales, with each nine having its own distinctive challenges.
Set against a lush tropical background, just minutes from the beach to the east, the course will test the most astute golfer.
From the championship tees it measures 6,690 metres, with six par 4s that measure more than 400 metres, four par 5s that are over 500 metres long and a 201 metre par 3. It all adds up to a tough series of holes when you factor in the parade of bunkers that come into play on most holes.
The Blue nine to the west has a combination of deep bunkers and natural land formations with undulating but generous greens and when combined with the Gold Nine makes for a tough but fun round of golf.
