This is a really fun course, we played in the Wednesday Comp, 7am tee time, course to ourselves, cost $105 plus $5 for comp fee. The negative is the club hire, my friend hired clubs and they where rubbish, a cheap non brand set, disappointing for this calibre of course. Also no beer before 10am... Good carts, free tees, pencil,... More

I, along with my husband and 20 friends, celebrated my 60th birthday with an evening function at the Palmers Sea Reef Golf Club. For anybody wanting an absolutely perfect evening from start to finish, then I highly recommend Michael and his team. The setting was gorgeous (we had the tables set up on the deck), the staff were incredibly attentive... More

My husband and I organised a few friends to try a round of 18 holes of golf and what a day we had, from the moment we arrived we felt welcome and catered for. Everything was ready for us, the staff were wonderful and the course immaculate. Wide open fairways with a couple of interesting twists including the resident crocodiles... More

Played there today. Course is generally in good condition, greens are consistent. Well deserving to be part of the Top 100 courses in Australia right now. It rained a fair bit overnight, and a bit during the round. Course drains pretty well, but was a bit soggy in a few places. As a result, played a bit slower/longer than I'd... More

Links course in a rainforest. I played a few small location golf courses and they have been mediocre at best. From the moment did my first drive I was astouned. The course is in supeeb shape and the play is at the same time rewarding and challenging. There was no need to "be careful" with your drive as there is... More

1 day at the Mirage Golf Resort and next day at Palmer. Palmer wins hands down. Everything about Palmer is superior - the course, the facilities, the buggies, the people, the pro shop, the bar - just an all round good course and resort. And the scenery is superb. Palmer any day

We nearly didn't play here when we realised Clive Palmer owners it, but glad we did. The grounds are very well kept, with plenty of challenging fairway bunkers, big but undulating greens. Pro shop staff are very good and best bacon and egg rolls at any golf course that I have played ( better than most restaurants)

The early T time was perfect as we finished around 11am just before it got too hot. The course is quite tight but very well designed and forgiving, although I think I was concentrating on keeping to the fairway to avoid the 11 crocs on the course. We did see one in the four hours.
