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

I purchased a gift voucher of 18 holes for my partner for Christmas so he decided to use it on a weekend when we were staying at Hamilton Island. When we arrived there was a buggy ready, clubs were organised and off we went. The course was a challenge for him and the views were magnificent. Every hole offered something... More

Came for lunch here and it was good. Food quality was excellent. After lunch, about 12 people in about 6 carts toured the course which was very good.

We greatly enjoyed our visit to the golf club. This was a package which included boat transfer to Dent Is,a tour of the course, and an excellent meal with fantastic friendly service. The cost represented value great for money. And the view was breathtaking. A golf challenge for those who love being challenged. We did not play golf on this... More

Loved driving the golf buggy around the course. Taking time to admire the views means you take a little longer to got around the course. Staff at the club were very friendly and drinks at the bar at the end of the day are a must.
