Course was in terrible condition, fairways OK bunkers unplayable and to top things off, there was no mention on website greens just been cored. Strongly don't recommend, you can play better Courses for less money.

Good course but affected by Floods

Really enjoy playing this course, but as the staff said this was only second day open after the floods, so the course wasnt in great shape. The layout is great and has some challenging holes, but will be in a better shape once the sun is on it for a weeks.

Poor pricing

Paid $84 for 18 holes and a cart to find out after I paid that only the back 9 was open which you could play “twice” to get your round of 18 in. Disappointed in the cost for what was on offer.

Very enjoyable course.

Course was in good condition. A few greens were under repair, but nothing major.

Pace of play was excellent.

Will play again.

Disappointing

This course is slowly deteriorating the facilities are old and in need of maintenance.
The course is a mess and a shell of its glory days. Lack of upkeep to the aesthetic really let’s it down. Over priced for what’s on offer on the Gold Coast. Won’t be back in a hurry.

Great Course

First time playing this course and I must say, it’s one of the best I’ve played on the coast. Layout of the course is excellent with water on almost every hole. Fairways in excellent condition. The only downfall to this course is it’s greens. But after 3 or 4 holes you can judge the speed of them pretty well. If the greens were to be fixed up I would probably join as a member. Overall great day of golf.

Greens and Tees terrible

Not worth the money, if on the greens the balls were jumping from weeds and sand holes. Bunkers had puddles and not usable.

Terrible Condition

Greens are unputtable no sand in traps, tees need to be mowed and branches over hang the cart paths. Never again

the bunkers appear to have been abandoned for some time.
The tee boxes generally are in an urgent need of mowing
the greens are in good condition . Generally speaking the greens are not to challenging from a slope perspective.
There is water about on virtually all holes so it pays not to wander off the fairway.

Not even open

Paid $169 to show up and the course is closed due to lockdown. Even called the day before to ensure they would be open and was told 100% golf continues as normal. Really disappointed.
