Best golf course I've played

This golf course ticked everything I wanted in a course - challenging, scenic, immaculate fairways and greens, and interesting. Highly recommended!

This park is good, but it lacks animals. Most of it just a place to walk around w/o anything to see. The kangaroos look tired of crowds same as other animals (if you could see them in their hideout). The mini train is good. If you're after good animals experience you better visit Lone Pine Coala Sanctuary.

So upmarket. Way too expensive for me. The shops, restaurants etc are nice, but not a lot to see unless you like golf or boating. Those massive, expensive boats are a sight to see. Worth a look and cost millions. Everyone drives around in golf buggies.

The course itself was very nice but the kangaroos all over the course were a sight to behold. When we got to the first tee there must have been 100 kangaroos in the woods just off the tee. That was just the start. They were all over along with other splendid wildlife. Now back to golf. The condition was fine... More

This is a great course but is expensive and has pretty strict dress code. We did the package they have going where you stay a night get breakfast and 18 holes with a cart for around 200 bucks. If you just play a round expect around 120+ dollars. I thought the package was pretty good and we got away from... More

All the facilities at Sanctuary Cove are A1. To have 2 championship courses side by side, the marina village, gym, tennis courts, etc, and all the rest of the facilities available at your door step is amazing.

The palms is nice. The Pines is amazing. If you are a golfer you must play here. The front 9 is spectacular. Coming home is a huge wind on the 17th tee can be daunting. Make sure you get at least one round in.

Great course in a fantastic location. Recent heavy rain meant we had to stay on the cart paths but otherwise a wonderful course. The newish club house has to be one of the best value meals I had in recent times!

Picturesque and challenging. Both the Palms and Pines had many bunkers and water. The Pines more so with a lot of water on the 2nd nine
