No parking blues to see the stars at the Australian PGA Championship
  • Thursday 17 November 2011

Why go through all the hassle of parking the car at a busy coastal venue when you can park and ride instead?

Sunshine Coast Council is keen to see as many residents and visitors enjoy one of the biggest sporting spectacles hosted here on the Coast.

Council will this year provide free bus transport on dedicated charter busses for people attending the Australian PGA Golf Championship at the Hyatt Regency, Coolum, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 25 to 27.

Economic Development Portfolio Councillor Lew Brennan said this is a great opportunity to witness some of the world's best golfers in action, including defending champion Peter Senior, Greg Norman, Jason Day, current Open champion Darren Clarke, Bubba Watson, Adam Scott, Aaron Baddeley, Robert Allenby, Geoff Ogilvy, Rickie Fowler and John Senden.

The PGA organisers expect high attendance numbers this year, given the calibre of the field and other new initiatives.

Dedicated charter buses marked 'PGA' will be operated by Sunbus per the below timetables, to collect people from designated pick-up points on the Sunshine Coast.

This free transport does not apply to the normal scheduled Sunbus services.
