This is far and away the most scenic golf course I've ever played at! Sweeping ocean and island views throughout the entire course makes for awesome playing conditions. If you're not an avid golfer, bring plenty of golf balls (you're going to need them) as there are gremlins in the rough that love golf balls. A short ferry ride off... More

My mum and I had a 2 course lunch and tour of the golf course. It's great value for $65 per person. The food is first class. The view is beautiful. The service is great. The tour of the course is just breath taking. This was my favourite part of my week at Hamilton Island. I highly recommend this tour... More

Last year, bright and early, I was fortunate to head over to Dent Island as part of a group of 4 for what was to be one of the best days I have ever had on & off a golf course. Visiting the island previously for a la carte lunch which, for $65 included ferry transfers, a tour of the... More

When the pro shop suggested we buy balls in boxes of 15 we knew we were in trouble. A 9 hole tour of the island was very enlightening. Whilst we did find as many balls as we lost, they were rarely ours. The course is very well maintained. The unforgiving rough was made up for by the views, amazing. The... More

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...
