I've played golf all over the world and this is right up there with the best of them. Don't be too disappointed when you go to the bag for another ball. Enjoy the challenge of a championship course on its own island with amazing views over the Whitsundays.

This was the hardest course I have played but I am an amateur! Glad I did it though. The views are spectacular so bring your camera and lots of spare golf balls. If your ball leaves the fairway, it's gone! Book for lunch while booking a tee time as it gets busy. The staff run this golf club extremely efficiently-... More

I would definitely recommend the 2 course meal deal for Dent Island. $65 will give you a short ferry trip there and back, 2 course lunch and a tour of 9 holes which has a spectacular view and well worth while. Great value and high level of service and meals. Must do!~

We just had an excellent trip to the Golf Club on Dent Island. The lunch was exceptional and we really regreted not having time for a game of golf as the course looked amazing. The views are spectacular. I would really recommend the trip.

You have to play this course if you're a golf fan, however if you're of less-than-average ability, don't even try. Probably the hardest course I've played (amongst 150+). Take a dozen plus balls, you'll need them, it's very unforgiving. Skip the clubhouse food, $25 for a cold hamburger.

Enjoyed the lunch deal that included tour of golf course and ferry trip. Book ahead as not many tables. Friendly staff. Amazing meals, especially the caramelised pumpkin side dish.... YUM! Kids menu. Lovely club house. Make sure you abide by the dress code but you'll be told when you book. One gentleman had to buy a collard shirt from the... More

The golf course was spectacular but the staff (1 staff in particular) was rude. The staff went through our Golf bags while we were on the transfer to the island. At no point did they ask for permission to go through the bags. Did they think we were smuggling something into the island???? Not sure if it's legal either to... More

The course is first rate although you better hit straight as its fairway or lost ball. The highlight though is the golf club restaurant. Even if you are not playing golf Its worth a visit due to the amazing views.
