I played the front 9 holes at Cairns Gold Course recently and had a very enjoyable time. The clubhouse, car park and pro shop have had a rebuild and major update to provide modern facilities for all players. The course is on the longer side but quite manageable. I enjoyed the wide fairways, well maintained trees/gardens and cart pathways. There... More

We play golf here regularly. Fabulous course and the staff are very friendly, especially the green staff. In the last couple of years they have had awesome meals on a Friday night. Great for families. Cheap drinks too if you become a social member for around $5.00/year and you'll be in for the jackpot draw on Friday nights. Must be... More

I'm not a golfer so not reviewing the course. We go to the Club on a Friday after work or on Sunday for breakfast. Sit out on the deck over looking the course and Trinity Inlet/ Yarrabah Range and enjoy a couple of cold ones and a fantastic meal. Staff are friendly and obliging, the food is some of the... More

A great way to spend a couple of hours with the family or even friends for a competitive game!! Low cost, great challenge & a super way to spend time with the kids. The driving range is right by & you can smash a couple of buckets out after your putting challenge... Keep your head down... Fore!!!!

Practice ground was immaculate playing off closely mown turf. Afterwards I repaired to the bar to drink a nice cold James Boag and chat to nice friendly... More
