“The best meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Four couples...10 wonderful days of sailing, great food, laughter and amazing experiences....and on our last full day we enjoyed the boat trip over to the golf club, a buggy tour of the course and then the most amazing meal of our entire trip. $65 for a two course meal, although we all added the third course. Alex, our waiter was, as almost all the waitstaff we encountered, most engaging and helpful. Top mark all around for the experience, the views and the food...A++++

“A must do when visiting Hamilton Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

My sister and I both said the golf club lunch was the highlight of our trip!! The food was 10/10!! They have done an excellent job of positioning the tables so there are only a few other diners and everyone has a view!!
The golf buggy tour was a bonus after the meal ... Such a Beautiful course and view!! Definitely recommend!!

“Excellent golf course but be warned”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We just had a great few days playing golf at this magnificent golf course. The only annoying and disappointing thing about the whole experience is that despite the fact that you have a time booked to play golf, the staff at the pro shop seem to ignore this if there is a two ball group who would like to play.. We had a big group of 12 and had bookings at 8:30, 8:40 and 8:50. ( Booked months before) We arrived promptly from the 8am ferry and when we arrived there, we were told to sit down outside and wait to be called . They told us that they wanted to process some smaller groups ahead of us . So why bother book some tee times if people can jump ahead of us? Is this because we were a group of 11 women and one man? We finally got on the course after 1 hour of our original tee off time. Then, when we were on the course, 2 different persons came around trying to rush us to let one golfer thru ?! Not very impressed with staff at the pro shop not like the staff at the bar and the buggy shed who were helpful and friendly.. A bit of professionalism and friendliness would be nicer!

“Super lunch deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

I don't play golf but can really recommend the $65 two course lunch deal with buggy tour. This was a great way to spend an afternoon from the moment we stepped onto the launch for the 10 minute boat trip across to Dent Is. Every table at the Clubhouse affords a view.The 2 course lunch (choice of entree/main or main/dessert) offered nice variety and no one in our group of 6 was disappointed with their choice.The pick of the menu was the entree of half dozen oysters with 3 different toppings. The gin & tonic was generous. The service was very attentive without being pushy. After lunch we paired off into golf buggies for a trip around the back 9 holes of the golf course. It was was great fun. The views were sensational. The one golfer in our group would have liked some commentary on the the golf course. In all not a cheap outing but value for money. Definitely recommend.
