THE Australian PGA Senior Championship has a new venue on the NSW south coast this year and will be blessed with the inclusion of some of the icons of Aussie golf.

Peter Senior, recently retired from the US Champions Tour, will head the card at the spectacular Mollymook Golf Club from 24-26 November.

“I love playing in Australia and it’s great to be home,” said Senior, who proved his continued competitiveness by taking out the 2015 Australian Masters in Melbourne.

“Playing with all my friends on the Legends Tour is always lots of fun. It’s great to catch up, share stories from our seasons competing on overseas Seniors Tours and reminisce about our times competing as the young stars on Tour.”

“But it is all business when we are on course. We are all still very competitive which will make for a good showdown at the Australian PGA Senior Championship.”

Senior will be joined by five time European Tour winner Mike Harwood, three time European Senior Peter O’Malley, seven time European Tour winner and defending champion Rodger Davis, as well as over 80 other senior professionals.

The Mollymook hilltop course has long been one of the most popular courses on the NSW south coast and following some bunker remodelling and an intense maintenance programme is in perfect condition.

“One of the toughest layouts on the E-Z-GO PGA Legends Tour schedule the person who emerges victorious at Mollymook Golf Club will be a very deserving champion,” said Hugh Dolan, Chairman of the E-Z-GO PGA Legends Tour.

“It is always a great honour to play such a great course for our pinnacle event; the Australian PGA Senior Championship, and on behalf of all the players I would like to thank Mollymook Golf Club for opening their course to us.”

The event will be played over 54 holes shared between the Professionals and 90 Amateurs for the first two rounds. A 36-hole cut will announce the leading 50 Professionals to play the final round.

Entry is free and spectators are welcome.
