First Professional Event at Revamped Royal Canberra Layout
The first professional event following the redevelopment of the main 18 hole layout at Royal Canberra will take place over 54 holes from the 9th to 11th February. The ActewAGL Canberra Classic will feature a host of world class female professionals including Jiya Shin, European number one Georgia Hall, Cheyenne Woods and former world number one Laura Davies
The Royal Canberra course has recently re-entered the Golf Australia Magazine Top 100 ranking list at #20, a significant improvement from its position of #70 in the 2014 list. Judges highlighted the additional width that has been created by the redesign and the strategic interest this adds to the layout. The improved course conditioning has no doubt also contributed to the course’s improved ranking position.
