I recently moved to the Gold Coast & am seeking the best Courses to play & any that i should avoid?
I played Gainsborough Greens yesterday which was okay but I'm keen to play the Championship n Resort Courses like Hope Island Brookwater etc...

Any advice is apreciated.

Resort courses,

Palm meadows, lakelands, glades, Robina woods (Palmer gold coast) hope Island.

Members courses,
Burliegh, coolangatta west, Windaroo.

Few of us on here are members at burliegh. It's a great course with bugger all water unlike the majority of gold coast courses. It's pretty much always in great Nick, only criticism is the greens are rock hard.

Members: Sanctuary Cove Pines!

Brookwater is a top course as well

Otherwise Matt has pretty much covered it

Some people have an unreasonable dislike of Brookwater

Perhaps not the best design in history from a purely golf perspective but it's spectacular and a genuine challenge

Brookwater is punishing...sometime unreasonable, but its good to feel the pain, at least once.

Robina Woods was widely thought of as the best resort layout, but Clive farked that up. I suggest Glades is the best all round resort layout on GC. Hope Island a little tougher and also good fun.

robina still a great layout but Clive is an arse I agree. Royal Pines has moved up my list now many spots. Great new layout

Lakelands is my pick of what I've played which is limited .
Sanctuary cove
Colonial
Royal pines
Couple others I can't remember.
£1000 on Spieth to win all 4 majors this year.
Had to get it in UK, none in Oz.

Thanks people.

So did Clive Palmer buy Robina Woods ?
You'd think after what he did to Coolum he'd find a new hobbie.
