Leishman will compete at the Australian PGA Championship alongside World Number 6 Adam Scott the week after the pair combine to represent Australia at the World Cup of Golf.
This is the first time since 2014 and since the tournament has been co-sanctioned by the European Tour that both Leishman and Scott will compete for the Kirkwood Cup. They will join defending champion Nathan Holman at RACV Royal Pines Resort.
"I love Australia, I love the fans and I love the atmosphere of the Australian PGA Championship so I am excited to be heading back to Royal Pines," said Leishman.
"I hope Scotty and I tee it up at Royal Pines as the World Cup champions and that we can celebrate with golf fans on the Gold Coast."
Leishman is a strong supporter of Australian golf and the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia and will play the Australian PGA Championship after a solid year in the US.
On the PGA TOUR, Leishman recorded two top-10 finishes in his 2016 season highlighted by a T5 at the Northern Trust Open.
This year's Australian PGA Championship also marks a year since Leishman's most recent victory; the Nedbank Golf Challenge.
"Marc is always a favourite of the Gold Coast and we are delighted to welcome him back to the Australian PGA Championship this year," said Brian Thorburn, CEO of the PGA of Australia.
"He has a wonderful game to watch on course and always makes time for his fans post round which makes him a huge hit."
"The Australian PGA Championship is a celebration of golf, to have Marc and Adam join us on the Gold Coast the week after the World Cup of Golf I hope gives us something extra special to commemorate."
The Australian PGA Championship is proudly supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland's It's Live! in Queensland major events calendar.
The Australian PGA Championship will be played at RACV Royal Pines Resort from 1-4 December with tickets on sale via Ticketek.
