Out of bounds, bunkers and water complicate factors on the closing hole of Jack Nicklaus' first course design in Australia.

Situated in the heart of Queensland’s Gold Coast, The Lakelands Golf Club was Jack Nickalus’ first signature designed course in Australia.

The highly regarded publication, the Australian Golf Course Guide, and its judging panel have voted the course as the best conditioned Australian public access course in four of the last five years.

Multiple tee positions makes this course user friendly and yet challenging, whatever the standard of golf you play. Nicklaus has used bunkering extensively in his strategic design and water features on many of the course’s 18 holes.

There is plenty of room for error however, especially from the tee, and as is typical of Nicklaus’ design work, much of the intrigue and strategy comes in the approach to each green.

Neat dress code is required with no denim or metal spikes permitted.

Full locker room facilities available. Limited individual and corporate memberships available.

Make sure you ask before booking a tee time for junior rates and if the greens are being sanded down. Had to pay full price for my son. Most of the greens had a cm of sand in them. I also suggest not renting clubs there as the selection is poor at best. Staff did not appear to care that we paid over $200 for a poor experience. At least he could have informed us before we teed off that greens were under maintenance. Was really looking forward to this course as it came recommended.

Played here 12/06/18. Still in immaculate condition but the greens have been slowed down to under 8 on the stimp. Coupled with the dearest beer in Qld, $6.50 for a mid strength schooner or can, I think there are better value for money options on the Coast.

Enjoyable Golf course, the greens had been cored but still fun. The course is under pressure at moment and with so many golf courses ob coast and with their change in membership. there was not many players on course which is great for me but long term this has to be concern .
