11 February 2017 | INSIDE GOLF TRAVEL RaCV RoyaL pines ResoRt RACV Royal Pines Resort, boasting 27 challenging holes of golf, is Australia’s home of Championship Golf. Set against a lush background along the Nerang River, RACV Royal Pines resort is located between the Gold Coast’s most famous beaches and the hinterland to the west. Opened in 1990, Royal Pines was originally designed by Japanese course architect tomojiro Maruyama. As host of the Australian PGA Championship, the championship course has undergone a complete re-design by renowned golf course architect, Graham Marsh. the renovations have seen greens, surrounds, landing area, and bunkers replaced to bring the course up to championship standards while also retaining its appeal to cater for golfers of all abilities. the Green and Gold championship combination hosted the PGA and proved to be a challenge to even the most astute professional golfers. From the championship tees it measures 6,690m, with six par-4s that measure more than 400m, four par-5s that are over 500m long and a 201m par-3. it all adds up to a tough series of holes when factoring in the parade of bunkers that come into play on most holes, and the far-reaching swales surrounding a slew of elevated greens. the Gold combination course is comprised of the Gold nine and the Blue nine. the blue nine, located on the western side of Ross Street, proves that shorter is not always easier in golf, as it has its own distinctive challenges. While the longer hitters may find one or two par 4s reachable from the tee, they are surrounded by strategically placed bunkers, meaning even the slightest miss off the tee will likely find you in trouble. the challenge on this nine is to play smart. RACV Royal Pines is where the players come to play, and where fervent golfers can experience a challenging layout, combined with a 5-star environment. With tight, tree-lined fairways and undulating greens, each nine-hole course has its own distinctive challenges, requiring a unique skill set in order to have a successful round. Afterwards, enjoy a casual meal and cold beverage on tee’s lower terrace, overlooking the first 10th holes of the tournament course. RACV Royal Pines Resort’s world-class practice facilities are complemented by teaching expertise from Mark Gibson’s Exceptional Golf coaching professionals. With a family-friendly environment, there are clinics for every age and every level of player. Combined with the five tennis courts, two of which are the Gold Coast’s only undercover courts, a gymnasium, spa and brand-new water park, RACV Royal Pines Resort offers five-star facilities including conference and accommodation facilities that are second to none.
