2022 SGA Championships Courses
OPTIONAL WARM-UP ROUND - SUNDAY
Palm Meadows was the first golf resort course on the Gold Coast, and pioneered the Australian resort golfing boom. The challenging 350-hectare par 72 course was designed by renowned course-designer Graham Marsh. It measures 6319 metres off the championship tees and the opening and closing holes are rated among the greatest in Australian golf. Water comes into play on 14 holes and there are 82 sand bunkers around the course.
ROUND 1. MONDAY
Sanctuary Cove - The Pines
As Australia's only Arnold Palmer signature course, The Pines Course is recognised as one of Australia's best and most challenging courses. The Pines is carved through 101 hectares of established pine forest, the course features corridor approaches to several holes, with lakes guarding others. Fourteen of the holes are contoured around six man-made lakes. An abundance of wildlife features on The Pines including rare bird life and scores of native Australian kangaroos.
ROUND 2. TUESDAY
Links Hope Island
Designed by five-times British Open Champion, Peter Thomson and home to Australian golfing royalty, Peter Senior, Links Hope Island is a must-play on any visit to the region. The course regularly rates among the finest resort courses in the country. When you play at Links, you'll be met with a real sense of welcome and warmth from the time you arrive.
REST DAY - OPTIONAL GOLF. WEDNESDAY
Brookwater Golf and Country Club
Designed by Greg Norman, Brookwater Golf and Country Club has been voted as Queensland’s number one golf course. The course features undulating greens, natural water features, and long, narrow fairways. The strategic design makes it the perfect environment for golfers of any skill to enjoy a day of premium golf. Brookwater Golf & Country Club is undeniably the most spectacular golf facility in Queensland set to challenge and delight golf enthusiasts of all levels.
ROUND 3, THURSDAY
Lakelands Golf Course
Since opening in February 1997, the wonderful Lakelands golf course has forged a deserved reputation as one of Australia's very best golf courses. Situated in the heart of the Gold Coast adjacent to the luxurious Radisson Resort and next door to Palm Meadows, Lakelands was the first signature designed course in Australia by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus. Lakelands is often described as a thinking player's course with a unique Nicklaus flavour to the design.
ROUND 4. FRIDAY
Palmer Gold Coast (Robina Woods)
Carved out of 65 hectares of native woodlands, with fairways lined by towering gum trees, Palmer Gold Coast has rapidly developed a reputation as one of Queensland’s best-loved resort courses. Consistently ranked in the top 30 resort courses in the country, Palmer Gold Coast is a 6078 meter, 18-hole, Par 71 championship golf course designed by the Marsh / Watson team. The rolling fairways, manicured greens, and towering eucalyptus are strikingly beautiful and blend harmoniously with the surrounding residential development. A natural water-course featuring lakes, ponds, creeks and native wildlife completes a rare golf course environment.
