The closing stretch at Hamilton Island is something special. Starting from the par 3 14th each hole overlooks the vista of island and ocean and it’s breathtaking

Hard to pick a favourite but I always think of 15, which you see as you crest the peak and it winds down the valley ahead of you

The ball on the right....near the bunker....nananananananana.....


I quite liked the 6th as well. From memory, I parred it and may have scored 37 points on the day and won an ISG National event.....

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

 

Weeti, 6th will disappear soon. Green will be moved closer to the water away from the public walking track. Doak engaged.
