Golfers to battle it out on Hamilton Island for position at Australian PGA Championship

With two positions in the Australian PGA Championship on offer, 50 of Australia’s leading Vocational PGA Professionals will today take on the challenging Hamilton Island Golf Club at the PGA Professionals Championship.

Having qualified at different locations around the country, Professionals will be playing for $55,000 in prize money at the three round tournament held on the picturesque Hamilton Island Golf Club.

The leading two male’s will qualify to tee it up alongside Adam Scott on the Gold Coast from 1-4 December at the European Tour co-sanctioned Australian PGA Championship.


Having won the tournament in both 2014 and 2015, Matt Docking is looking forward to the opportunity to be just the second player in the event’s history to win the tournament in three consecutive years.

“I have recently moved from New South Wales to Queensland to take on the role of Head Professional at Gailes Golf Club so I haven’t had the ideal preparation. But I probably know this golf course better than most so I definitely think I have a fighting chance of a three peat,” said Docking.
