The Ramada Resort Kooralbyn Valley and golf course reopened under the Ramada flag last year and the Ramada Resort Kooralbyn Valley Pro-Am – running yesterday and today is said to be the first of many golfing events to come.
Resort Manager Mark Fletcher said the event was a momentous step in the resort’s push to re-emerge as a top-class golfing destination around Australia and beyond.

“The course lay idle for nine years before the resort was relaunched under the Ramada brand, so extensive work has gone into bringing it to the standard where it is suitable for professionals,” he said.
“It had a reputation as one of the most challenging courses in Australia when the resort was previously open and we are continuing to make improvements so that is the case again. In the past 12 months, about 15,000 people have used the course and we only expect those numbers to grow.”
Since opening last year, the team at Ramada Resort Kooralbyn Valley has focused on raising the resort to the prominence it once enjoyed by appealing to the everyday traveller, rather than relying solely on its historic appeal to the super-rich.
Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim senior vice president of hotel and resort operations and property development, Matt Taplin, said the resort is well on its way to achieving its potential under the Ramada brand.
“The resort has been successful historically and the new team here is doing an excellent job of providing fresh direction and making it a picturesque Australian escape available for everyone to experience,” he said.
