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.

Everything was perfect. Especially the food and the view. Great golf lesson as well. It is a must see if you visit the island.

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.

A great course - unique because if you leave the fairways you will almost certainly not find your ball. Spectacular scenery with some wonderful holes but definitely not for beginners. You arrive by boat and then the organisation is lacking as the groups / pairings are not properly worked out in advance and you have single golfers , followed by... More

I have now been lucky enough to play this course twice over the last 6 months, and have to say it's the best resort course I have ever played. On both occassions, the weather was amazing (light winds also!!) so the view and golf was excellent. It is probably the toughest course I have played, and whilst losing many, many... More
