Beyond the Surf & Sand: Explore Some of the Best Golf Courses on the Gold Coast
Away from the glistening lights of the vibrant nightlife and the wax-crusted surfboards along endless pristine beaches, this corner of Queensland certainly holds a serene side you simply have to experience.
The best golf courses on the Gold Coast not only challenge an avid golfer’s mettle but also offer panoramic views that can rival any postcard.
Courses like Lakelands, Links Hope Island, RACV Royal Pines, and Sanctuary Cove (both The Palms and The Pines) run through natural wetlands, tranquil fairways, and green expanses hugged by bushlands. Not to mention the artistic brilliance of The Glades.
And once the game is played? The Gold Coast ensures you aren’t out of options, with its myriad beaches, thrilling theme parks, and wildlife sanctuaries. Whether you are away on a stay-and-play golf holiday, or simply making the most of a free weekend, there’s plenty here to keep you busy.
Experience the Secluded Nelson Bay – Offering Some of the Best Golf Courses in Sydney
Just a short drive north from the hustle and bustle of the Sydney CBD, Nelson Bay awaits with a golfing experience intimately intertwined with nature. The backdrop of the beautiful waterways of Port Stephens is just the beginning. As you tee off at the Horizons Golf Resort or walk the Nelson Bay Golf Club greens, don’t be surprised by the occasional company of kangaroos, wallabies, and native birds. And if a challenging course is what you seek, Pacific Dunes promises just that.
Once you’re finished exploring some of the best golf courses in Sydney, Nelson Bay is an ode to the great outdoors – from exhilarating dolphin watching to the serene charm of fishing and hiking.
