The Australian PGA golf tournament may not be moving from its
home of the past 11 years after all.
The PGA of Australia says it will consider a revised offer from
the owner of the Palmer Coolum Resort to keep the event on the
Sunshine Coast north of Brisbane.
After wrangling with resort owner and billionaire mining magnate
Clive Palmer over signage and other sponsorship issues, the PGA of
Australia chief executive Brian Thorburn said this week that the
tournament would shift next year to another course in Queensland
But Thorburn said on Sunday that the board of directors would
next week consider a new offer from Palmer that could see the event
remain at the player-favored resort, which has an eight-meter
(26-foot) robotic dinosaur outside the clubhouse.
