My son, a friend and myself played golf here last Friday and then our wives joined us for lunch. This was one of the highlights of our entire 11 days on Hamilton Island. If there is a prettier, more spectacular golf course I have not seen it yet. It is VERY challenging though, especially for high handicappers like ourselves. You... More

initial impressions were good. The tour and ferry across to Dent Island was nice. Spectacular views. Once in the clubhouse however, the service was terrible. Waited almost an hour and a half for the first course. Main meals were pretty average and bland. Had to wait so long for the food that we missed the ferry back and were forced... More

My husband had organised lunch and a tour of this golf course during our recent visit to Hamilton Island. The golf course is located on nearby Dent Island and has magnificent views from nearly every hole. I don't play golf but my husband does so when he suggested a tour of the golf course I wasn't that enthusiastic about it.... More

The Dent Island 2 course lunch and tour is well worth the $65 cost. The views from the Dent Island clubhouse are simply stunning as you wait for your lunch. I liked that you were able to mix and match courses, which allowed you to share eg. one person orders an entree and main, the other person orders a main... More

I'm not a golfer, but my wife and I went to Dent Island for a tour and 2-course meal and it was impressive. Our tour guide took us to the southern tip of the island in a small group, each with our own buggy. Beautiful golf course, and the southern tip offers incredible panoramic views. It was a lot of...

Short boat ride from Hamilton Island marina. Beautiful clubhouse with a friendly welcome (gotta love the hot towel on arrival). Weather was patchy so course felt empty. Course was in top condition although we found quite a bit of variation in green speeds. Layout is expansive with each hole unto itself. Views from wherever you look. Snacked at the clubhouse...

Right from making the booking via email, up until I stepped off the boat at the end of the day back onto Hamilton Island, everything was first class. Ok, $150 for 18 holes of golf is a great deal of money. Especially for a 26 handicapper like myself. But I couldn't come out to Hamilton Island on holiday and pass... More

This would be the best golf course in Australia, at least for the views. The golf course whilst not overly long was in magnificent condition & the weather was perfect with only a little cooling breeze. A great variety of holes, & if you keep your ball on the fairway an easy course for low markers with most irons into... More

The four of us took up the $65pp lunch and golf buggy tour of the golf course offer. What an wonderful few hours we had. From the moment we stepped on to the barge to ferry us across to Dent Island, the staff were extremely professional and the whole experience was fabulous. The lunch was superb, panoramic views was amazing... More

We made reservations on line before beginning our Seaboard cruise. The staff at the golf club answered our emails immediately and gave us a tee-time for 2 people with no problem at all. Directions to the ferry to take us to the neighboring island (a 5-10 minute ride) were simple and it was no problem getting there. We were provided... More
