Gold Coast
Palm Meadows Golf Course
18 Holes
PAR 72
6319 M


Palm Meadows is a course of such an excellent standard as to allow the staging of the Palm Meadows Cup – a tournament recognised by many as being years ahead of its time, and until recently the richest tournament held in Australia.

Designed by leading Australian golfer Graham Marsh, Palm Meadows was one of the first championship courses on the Gold Coast. Palm Meadows emerged from 350 hectares of marshland, just a few kilometres west of Surfers Paradise. A par 72 measuring 6319 metres off the championship tees with water coming into play on 14 of the holes, along with 82 sand bunkers.

An increasing number of returning international players are experiencing the challenges that Palm Meadows presents. The first hole is regarded by many as one of the worlds most challenging opening holes. With water running the entire length of the hole on the left and the world famous ‘bamboo Curtain’ on the right, golfers must have their ‘game’ from the first shot of the day.

The signature hole at Palm Meadows is the world famous 18th hole. Measuring 523 metres from the championship tees, the player has the opportunity to chance their arm as to how much of the dogleg right they want to cut off.

Palms Meadows is a completely public course and as such there are no tee times reserved for members. Golfers are able to enjoy the facilities at anytime, however bookings are advisable to avoid disappointment.

This course has a phenomenal layout which really makes it a fun day of golf. Lots of little tricky holes but with the right tee shots can leave you wedges and short irons in for second shots.

1 major problem though is the speed of play, being a good value for money course does attract alot of social groups who can be VERY slow not to mention the usual older Ladies/Vets groups.

Apart from the speed of play, a really enjoyable course.

Nice course. But very disappointed with how i had to wait on almost each hole for them to finish grooming the green. I timed it and the first par 3 on back 9 took them 15 minuts. I dont mind waiting a bit but that is crazy. No one behind me let me play my ****** shot !!!

Palm Meadows' signature 18th hole was on my bucket list for 4 years since we moved to Brisbane. Started off well and really enjoying the course. Couple in front was playing at reasonable pace. Disaster struck on the 5th with two ladies' groups ahead who were excruciatingly slow. They never attempted to maintain pace and created a long queue behind. They did not comply with the 5-minute limit on finding lost balls. They were so unhurried. Being in competition with their pink polos, they surely must know basic golf rules and etiquette but  chose to totally ignore them. I couldn't take it anymore and left after 16th foregoing my bucket list 18th hole. The couple in front starting yelling and shooting up on them to no avail. Like the first time visitor couple in front, I am not returning. Great disappointment.

Have played this course a few times now ,and it really needs a Marshall ,they are cramming to many players on the course and it is very slow ,,in my opinion they should instead of having two players following two other groups of two they should make them play in groups of four to speed play up
