Originating from a market garden in 1969 the course has been developed and expanded into one of the most picturesque and challenging courses in Australia.  9 hole golf course - 5 par 3's 4 par 4's

A full-time greenkeeper, employed by the club, maintains the course in an impressive condition year round.

From the shadows of the imposing Mt. Lidgbird and Mt. Gower the course meanders through the lushly vegetated Kentia Palm forest out into the gently undulating open fairways along the ocean foreshore providing the golfer with many challenges along the way.

An average round of 3 hours (18 holes) allows ample time to pursue the many other attractions on the Island. A fishing trip, a round island cruise, snorkelling, bush walking, scuba diving or coral viewing are some of the active pursuits. A lazy afternoon at the beach or a visit to the new museum may appeal.
