My wife and I went to the GCTC for the Melbourne Cup race day. It was a great experienced, Melbourne Cup Day was always going to be busy, that said the venue and service was great, we had an enjoyable day...In fact it was that good we are now members.

I had my 25th birthday at the turf club. The events co-ordinator that helped me organise the day was so helpful and it is such a shame that the rest of the staff were such a letdown. We paid close to $4000 for a sectioned off area in the dome with a food and beverage package however unfortunately, sometimes you... More

Excellent service and facilities. A very well-organised event with plenty of service staff and transport options. Well worth utilising the Member's Area for excellent service and view of the racetrack, although the general admission area was also very good. I would recommend a day at Gold Coast Turf Club.

Try the Gallery Restaurant...we enjoyed a 3 tiered lunch...chicken wings, ribs, prawns, oysters, baked potatoes, and salad. Later in the arvo, we had cheese and fruit platter and a cuppa. The waiting service was exemplary. ..Francis, in particular, was a very gracious host. A few winning bets topped off the day. Do yourself a favor. ..Book through Nathan at the... More

They race here every week and at some mid weeks. The facilities for punters are excellent with a very strong bookmakers ring. There is plenty of food available and a great variety. If you enjoy your racing, this is the place to go.

A brilliant way to spend 4 hours on a Saturday afternoon. Good racing, excellent snacks and drinks. A short 10 minute drive from downtown Surfers.

Every time we have been here, its been with a group of friends or charity event and its always been fun. Its great to have an excuse to get all frocked up and pretty. The drinks are mid range in price and the members area looks straight over the finish line. Don't forget to put some money on the horses... More

I attended Magic Millions Day this year.Arguably the worst racecourse meeting I have ever been to and believe me,I have been to a lot.The Members Enclosure was devoid of air conditioning and was jam packed with yobbos intent on drinking themselves to death rather than watching the horses.Most of the day was spent in the vicinity of the horse stables...

Love the Gold Coast races! Nice and relaxed and the staff and security are really easy going unlike some major race events like Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane. Its never too long a line for the toilet or to get a drink so its always a fun day, good for big groups too!
