The Gold Coast is home to the world’s most scenic and challenging golf courses. This is why aside from the beaches and the party places, Gold Coast golf courses also attract droves of travelers every year. The best times to come here for golf are during the spring and autumn. The sun may be too hot in the summer although these months also hold the least possibility of rain. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, the terrain of the Gold Coast Hinterland is always interesting. Imagine a mix of rainforests, lagoons, seascape, and the bushland in one place.

The Robina Woods Golf Course is only too well-known internationally. It’s always ranked among the top 25 resorts in Australia and for good reason. Robina’s course is a 6078 meters long, 18-hole, par 71 golf course that’s not exactly designed for beginners. This is a championship golf course which is ideal for intermediate to advanced players.

The Links Hope Island Golf Club is open to the public, though it may ask for an entrance fee for non-members. The course has two loops, both with nine holes, so you’ll be going through nine holes from the southeast going counter clockwise, with the other nine holes starting off at the southwestern side going clockwise. The finale is pretty challenging. You’ll have to make two holes while you’re bounded by a non-tidal lagoon.

If you’re in love with the Gold Coast’s Nerang River, then the courses at the Royal Pines Resort would be a treat for you. While this is open to social golfers, the courses are better known at the venues for Australia’s most prestigious tournaments. The play isn’t really for beginners. With water coming into play, the terrain will give even the best players of the country a difficult time.

If you want a golf course that’s good to play in any time of the year, then you should try The Palms at the Sanctuary Cove. The golf course was carved around 100-year-old cabbage palms, has a length of 5833 meters, has a Par 71 and impressive carts with their own GPS locators. This techie boost tells you your exact location in the course and which direction you need to hit your ball.

While it’s only open to members, the Arundel Hills Country Club is also worth mentioning. This is undoubtedly the best golf course in all of Australia with expertly designed fairways, crisp, clean tees, and greens that are painfully maintained to perfection. If you have a friend who’s a member of the club, try to score yourself an invitation. This is a golf course you simply can’t miss out on.
