Victorian PGA Championship at Moonah Links

Moonah Links will be proudly hosting the Victorian PGA Championship in November 2022.

This year, the format will be slightly different as the size of the field has increased.  Both the Legends and Open Courses will be played on the first two rounds with the Peter Thomson-designed Open Course – host to the 2003 and 2005 Australian Opens – to determine the champion over the final two rounds.

PGA of Australia Tournaments Director Australasia, Nick Dastey commented:

“Moonah Links occupies an important place in tournament golf in this country and we’re thrilled that it is again hosting an ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia event.

During a difficult couple of years for tournament golf, Moonah Links stepped in and hosted back-to-back events, giving our Tour Professionals a safe environment in which to showcase their skills.

They are outstanding golf courses, the facilities are world-class and the format of the tournament will ensure professionals and amateurs alike get to experience all Moonah Links has to offer.

The Open Course has also hosted the Final Stage of our Qualifying School since 2017, so this further solidifies what is an already very strong relationship between the PGA of Australia and Moonah Links.”

The Victorian PGA Celebrity Amateur Classic will again take place in conjunction with the Vic PGA; they  will give amateur golfers the unique opportunity to participate in a fully-sanctioned PGA Tour of Australasia event on two championship golf courses.

The field will be made up of professionals who will pair with amateurs (including leading celebrities) with the top 25 amateurs to make the cut and the top eight getting to play all four rounds.

“Playing across two very different but equally challenging golf courses is unique in itself and with the history associated with Moonah Links I feel very fortunate that it was the site of my maiden PGA Tour of Australasia title.” said 2020 Champion Chris Wood.
