Palm Meadows Golf Course offers a golfing experience to savour and a true championship course boasting two of the best opening and closing holes in Australian golf.

Our aim has always been a simple one: attracting local golfers, offering the chance to play a stellar layout at affordable prices and matching that experience with an equally enjoyable experience in the clubhouse.

The challenging 350-hectare par-72 course designed by Graham Marsh measures 6,319 metres off the championship tees. Water comes into play on 14 holes and there are 82 sand bunkers around the course. There is 11 kilometres of golf cart paths for the large fleet of electric golf carts fitted with GPS screens and eskies.

The layout is pretty special to look at and the golf will set your pulse racing. The first hole is recognised as one of the Australia’s most challenging opening holes. The 353-metre par-four has water on the left running the entire length of the hole and a towering clump of enormous bamboo on the right side of the fairway waiting to catch any pushed or sliced drives.

While the first is great and the next 16 also contain some wonderful and memorable golfing tests, the signature hole at Palm Meadows is the 18th. This is up there among the great finishing holes in Australia and was once rated by American Golf Digest among the top 500 golf holes in the world. Depending on the current state of their match, and their own game and confidence, golfers may decide how brave (or foolhardy!) they wish to be with their opening drive over the water. The fairway curves round to the right and there is more water to carry before reaching the green. Anything is possible here from eagle to double bogey or worse. It is a classic end to what we are confident will be an invigorating round that will not only last long in the memory, but want you coming back for more.

Being a public golf course, all social golfers are welcome and are treated to exemplary service every day of the week. On-course food and beverage service and access to the fully licensed Lakeview Restaurant will ensure your day at Palm Meadows is an enjoyable one.

Choose somewhere else! There simply isn’t the investment going in to this course like there used to be. Played Robina Woods and Lakeland’s at the same  time and they are in much better shape. And better value.

One of my favourite golf courses to play on the Gold Coast!! The course has plenty of challenging holes and the bent greens are always fun to read. The buggies are fitted with GPS Technology which is an added bonus of playing a great course. Looking forward to my next game at Palm Meadows.

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.
