15 May 2006 Hyatt hosts PGA Coaching Summit
Several high profile guest golf coaches including Tiger Wood's coach, Henry Haney from the United States of America will take part in the 2006 Asia Pacific Srixon PGA Coaching Summit being held at the Hyatt Regency Coolum from 16 to 18 May.
The PGA has 400 professionals registered for the event with more expected and Division Five Councillor Bruce Dunne said the summit would have a significant impact on the local economy, in particular, the area's tourism operators.
"Most of these professionals are either staying at the Hyatt or other Coolum accommodation houses so there is an obvious knock-on effect for the local restaurants, cafes and attractions when an event of this stature is held here in Maroochy," Cr Dunne said.
The summit is held biennially and this is the second consecutive Srixon PGA Coaching summit to be held at the Hyatt Regency.
Maroochy Mayor Joe Natoli said the staging of the Srixon PGA Coaching Summit once again in the region indicates the PGA's on-going recognition of the support received from Council and other organisations in Maroochy for the Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship.
"And another PGA flagship event staged in Maroochy is the Holden Scramble Championship Final which takes place annually at Twin Waters Golf Club just before the PGA at the Hyatt.
"This event attracts over 300 competitors from Australia and New Zealand who all stay in the region for at least four nights," Cr Natoli said.
"Golf brings a significant number of tourists to Maroochy every year with the world-class golf courses adding to the Maroochy's holiday destination appeal."
