I had the pleasure of playing the course with my 2 sons on 21st Dec , the course is difficult but the views more than up for the a few lost balls ha ha. The staff were very professional and catered to every need and some. We were followed round the course by a young lady called Tara, who went... More

I recently played on this course with 8 other people and boy was it tough. The course lends to straight hitters with anything left or right and you are in the deep stuff. I found the two days that we played there were fantastic, the views are spectacular, the course to be in immaculate condition, and the staff exceptional that... More

My wife and I played golf allover the world and are particularly fond of link or link-type courses. We therefore included a visit to this club as part of our trip to the Great Reef Barriers. For some reasons, this golf club, strictly speaking not a link, has not been rated as one of the very best among the greats... More

The day as an experience was amazing and memorable. Food and service are perfect. Only downside from a golf point of view , Bunkers seemed extremely firm with a lot of stones. i did get told afterwards that you can move stones though. other than that the course and views are pretty much perfect.

I've been lucky and played many great courses around the world and this course is up there with the best of them. You will need all your concentration or be prepared to lose a bucket of balls. You don't just stand on the tee and belt a ball down the fairway, you need to consider what you want to try... More

Played 9 holes here last July and although I lost about 20 balls due to the toughness of the course, I'd say to any golfer to put this on your bucket list. The views are spectacular of the surrounding ocean and islands and makes it hard to concentrate on your game but who cares! The only regret was not playing... More

Well what a course - if your a golfer you'll love it - if your a hacker then bring truck loads of golf balls - you'll need plenty as it is penal from the tee. Each hole is special but the Par 3 are outstanding - pick the right club - Do not be short...we played from the back tees... More

This is a beautiful course overlooking hamilton island. It was really windy when we played but we still had fun. We did lose 12 balls over 9 holes as there is a LOT of rough! It was hard to get frustrated with the amazing views though.

My girlfriend and I joined our husbands for lunch after their round of golf. Lovely setting, great meal, and the boys said the course was spectacular. Could understand why we couldn't get in to lunch until 2pm, there are very few tables in the restaurant.
