The lack of service is disappointing For the money you pay to be a member you would at least expect capable bar staff, there lack of knowledge an general unwillingness to help is enough to change venues

We checked out the Gold Coast Turf Club a few weeks back as part of our drive around Australia.

It is always a fun day at the Gold Coast Turf Club.... easy to get to if getting a taxi or plenty of parking if you want to drive. the members through to public areas are clean and tidy, easy to get to a TAB quickly or bar if needed. Will be back.

Very positive experience in the members section as guest of a member. The food is quite good but as ususl over priced because that monopolize everything there. Our own down side is the young rude girls who get drunk and cant control them selves in public

Lovely day, not too many people. We're lucky enough to have complimentary passes to the Members area (usually $40 each). Cheese platter was good, but other food ....... I would have expected a higher standard.

The place is pretty old and run down but I guess this gives it some charm. If you don't want to dress up you won't feel out of place as the facilities aren't dressed up either. It is really hard to view the betting information screens because they are so old & out of focus etc. The track looks great,... More
