My wife and I had an amazing experience playing Hamilton Island Golf Club. It is located on Dent Island which is only a 10 minute ferry from Hamilton Island. I would consider the round to be one of my greatest golf experiences ever. I am shocked this course doesn't get more publicity! The course itself is very challenging with extremely... More

Great golf experience. Extremely difficult course. Tight and challenging. Be prepared to lose some golf balls. We hired a second buggy for a very fair fee of $40 which allowed two family members to experience the fun as spectators around the course. The course has undulating fairways and a golf buggy is essential. The buggy is equipped with it's own... More

Beautiful course with the most stunning views. Only reason gave it 4* is that the course is very tight with no rough. I goes from fairway to lat hazards on all holes so a few balls lost. Greens were immaculate and club house had great food & comparable views

We went over for lunch from Hamilton Island, the food was beautiful and the view spectacular. Definitely recommend a visit even if golf is not your thing.

Leave your driver at home. Hit irons ti keep the ball in play. Greens run true. The best service level at any course I have ever played.

Played the course for the second time, was as good as I remembered. Lost A LOT of balls but it didn't matter, that's part of the challenge of the course. The views are outstanding, the service was fantastic & the lunch at the just as good.

Any golfer visting Hamilton Island should be sure to include a round at Hamilton Island Golf Club in their time there. A spectacular course but make sure you take at least a dozen balls because it is not easy (in fact some very challenging holes which only enhances the experience) and you're guaranteed to lose some. Don't feel you have... More

This is a seriously challenging golf course particularly for someone like myself of less than average golfing ability but 30C,10-15 knots of wind and uninterrupted views is worth a few golf balls. The lunch at the clubhouse was awesome, as good as Bomme at the yacht club. From getting on the launch to getting back the staff were superb and... More

You need to catch the ferry across to Dent Island because believe it or not this golf course has its own island . You get a buggy with PGS and even if you miss at golf as it's a rather challenging course, it's worth doing because from every hole you have stunning views of the rugged Whitsundays coastline. An absolute... More

I'm a relatively keen golfer and I've played courses all around the world, but this stands out as the most picturesque of them all! There are panoramic views of the Whitsundays from a number of the holes. A word of warning: this is a challenging course and very unforgiving. Be prepared to lose plenty of balls! We tried to book...
