The day started well with a courtesy bus for patrons, a great idea for visitors and an encouragement to attend the races. A nice venue and a great day out.

Went here for lunch and seen two boys fighting in parking lot. The staff were rude and either were having a very bad day or simply didn't like the fact that I was an out of towner on vacation. I counted 4 cockroaches on the floor and heard the F word used constantly! the majority of people there on the... More

I confess to being motivated to write this after the appalling experience at a race club in Sydney. Once more the adage about the familiar failing to be recognised for how good it is until you come up against the opposite. I am a regular visitor to the Gold Coast Turf Club. The facilities are excellent and have been designed... More

We went to the races for a hens party in the dome it was great fun getting all dressed up and drinking a lot! The drinks were fairly priced I didn't like the complimentary wine that we received it was really gross but other then that we had a great day out and we will be doing it again soon

Booked a trip to the races and dined in the restaurant with a view to the course.. Staff were fantastic and I was most surprised at how good the food was too.. I can really recommend this.. Well done guys, The booking lady at the racecourse who organised it was great too. 10/10 all round..

as a first time race goer to the gold coast, there were no clear signs to tell you which way to go as you come in , and unless you are a member or guest , you are left standing as there is only a few seats in the grass area and all afternoon in the sun,

The race track and amenities are fine but the TV monitors are very old and blurry, almost impossible to read.

Great day out, the Staff and Bookies were very helpful, and made it an enjoyable day. A point if you are going to the races - you can purchase Membership for the day if you are smartly dressed and have decent shoes for only $15 each - well worth it.

When we are on the Gold Coast we always go here on one Saturday with our family and stay for about 6 races. It is worth searching the internet for free entrance tickets as this will save you $12 pp to get in. Children are free so we do not spend any money on getting in. Food it the usual... More

Had received an invitation to attend a Saturday meeting at the GCTC. Got there early had great seats at the finish line. Wasn't driving so imbibed each time I left to place a bet downstairs. There were plenty of choices in food outlets and bars. The chicken skewers in the marquee on the front lawn were a hit. The sun,... More
