However golf isn’t the only entertainment at the Australian PGA Championship.
The Tournament Village will be the place to be over the next four days with live music on the TAG Heuer stage.
From 12-2pm Andre-T, an acoustic pop and soul act with plenty to offer, will be centre stage. Her vocals range from the likes of Missy Higgins to Ben Harper and even Jeff Buckley, which means a huge display of various genres and tones is to be expected from all of her performances.
Keeping the good times rolling after the final putt has sunk is Devine Band who will be on the TAG Heuer stage from 5-7pm. Entry to the tournament is free after 5pm so come on down and relax after work.
If you get hungry, there are a selection of some of the best Food Trucks the Gold Coast has to offer serving up some delicious treats.
Chubby’s Diner is serving up sliders and other American fare while Barrace has Portuguese chicken covered and if Mexican has your mouth watering Zicatela has some of the best.
To wash it all down visit Wanda and Andy the Landie (the Yenda caravan and ute) for a specially brewed craft lager exclusive to the Australian PGA Championship, the Yenda Eagle.
