This golf course was on my husbands bucket list, so he was very excited to be finally going to play it. You get picked up by boat & taken to Dent Island, he said the course is very challenging and the views are spectacular, lost 4 balls, but his partner lost 24, so take extras !!! If you wish to...

The scenery when you play this golf course is breathtaking. As long as you find a calm day, it's great to watch the calm blue sea and islands around. The course itself is challenging, and it's you can easily see that it's a championship course because the fairway bunkers are too far away from the tee for most amateurs to... More

A great course with breathtaking views. 2nd round is better that the first. They really look after you in a variety of ways. Yes it's pricy, but reasonable considering its one of the best courses I have played. Pick a calm day if you can, and take plenty of golf balls!

One of the most beautiful golf courses I've played as well as challenging. The 'aides' are there to help (cart gps + yardage guide from Proshop at a cost) are good but course knowledge is paramount at HIGC. Your score will be 5 - 10 better rd 2 as you know your distances, 'go zones' and smart play areas. The... More

The buggy tour around the golf course was fun with breathtaking views everywhere. This was followed by a delicious 2 course lunch in the club house. This half trip from Hamilton Island is great value for money, the staff were all very attentive and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Great place to play. 3 brave men braved the elements in one of the coldest winters day to complete 18 holes, beer break at the 6th and 9th. Simply stunning are the only words I can use to describe a terrific experiences. Highlight was the sea eagle with a snake in it's talons for dinner.

Great half day trip,lunch and a drive around the back nine holes. A fabulous course, lovely clubhouse and staff, mains for lunch, fish mains were fabulous but the scallop and pork entree didn't work for us. A great day though and most worthwhile

We booked lunch at the golf club, which had been recommended by friends. The brochure didn't say, but men are required to wear collared shirts. (Later I saw the dress code was posted at the bottom of the confirmation email, but if you are booking via phone you don't see it). My husband had to run back to the apartment... More
