Can you help iSeekGolf find the most spectacular golf holes in Australia?

If you're a Queenslander, maybe a hole at Hamilton Island or a water carry on the Sunshine Coast springs to mind, while those further south may think of a clifftop ocean carry, a hole on King Island or the Mornington Peninsula.

 

And for golfers out west, the spectacular coastal views at The Cut could rate a mention.

 

Wherever you are, we want your input below and/or at this link.

The 15th at Waverley is certainly spectacular.  A wonderful reminder of man's ability to generate electricity.

2 & 3 at Narooma around the cliffs, the first 6 holes plus 18 all have amazing views of the coast, the 'forest' holes are pretty nice as well.

 

8th at Tasman, (right near Port Arthur) short 3 over a cliff with the sea to the left (similar to Narooma 3rd) 

 

14th at Cape Shanck, shot to a big 3 tiered green, with a background of the National courses and Bass straight in the distance.

 

18th at Warburton, the drop is huge and the hang time goes forever, cool course in a beautiful spot.

 

14th at Lost Farm, probably my pick of the spectacular holes at Barnbougle, drive out from the dunes down towards to the sea, one of best examples of a great view and a great hole.

Your recall is 100%, as is the fact only one of us scored on that hole :(

I loved the 6th too

Not sure how spectacular the 5th is from a golf perspective but that moment you walk over the crest of the hill is incredible
