2021 SGA Championships Courses
OPTIONAL WARM-UP ROUND. SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10
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 1. MONDAY, OCTOBER 11
RACV Royal Pines Resort
RACV Royal Pines Resort has been recognised as a premier golf destination for over a decade. Featuring undulating terrain, magnificent greens and tight fairways that demand respect, RACV Royal Pines is a great golf experience for players of all standards. With 27 Championship holes of golf, the facility features three distinct course combinations and three unique golfing experiences.
ROUND 2. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 12
Sanctuary Cove - The Palms
Designed to challenge players of all abilities, The Palms Golf Course is considered a championship course rivalling some of the best golf courses in Australia. It is now ranked in Australian Golf Digest’s Top 50 golf courses. The layout is a return to the traditions of the game, with distinctive holes, deep greenside bunkers and boldly contoured greens requiring creative shot making.
REST DAY - OPTIONAL GOLF. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12
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, OCTOBER 14
The Glades is regarded by many as the finest golf course on the Gold Coast. Designed by Greg Norman, the layout opened in 1999 and features some superb golf holes and a great test of golf for players of all abilities. The 6420-metre par 72 Championship layout opened in 1999 and rapidly developed a reputation as the best golf course on the Gold Coast. The facility features superb playing surfaces with greens that are unique on the Gold Coast. The greens are a type of “Creeping bent grass” that ensure a superior putting surface all year round. The Glades is on 65 hectares of land with a total of 98 bunkers. Norman not only had a vision to create a challenging golf course on the Gold Coast, but he also retained 9 hectares of wetland area to create a natural wildlife sanctuary within the course.
ROUND 4. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15
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.
