The former home course of world number 1 Jason Day and Adam Scott, Kooralbyn Valley is Queensland’s most challenging golf course.
The 18-hole championship golf course at Kooralbyn Valley opened for play in October 1979 and in two years was chosen to host the 1981 Queensland Open – a fitting tribute to its superb layout. Renowned Scottish designer, Desmond Muirhead, said the landsite was one of the best he had worked with in all of the 80 courses he has designed around the world. Kooralbyn is Muirhead at his best. It is a masterpiece of design that has no conflict with nature.
The front nine winds through natural valleys and watercourses, whilst the back nine flirts with 10 hectares of lakes in the valley basin. The wildlife is abundant, with hundreds of kangaroos feeding on a daily basis. After eight years in the wilderness during the global financial crisis, the course re-opened in 2016. Now with its multi-million dollar makeover, the course is set to impress the golfing world once again.
