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.

Had a great day, very nice course in good condition. Greens are challenging but you can achieve good scores with patience. Hole 18 is great when you get it right and cut off the dog leg. Even so my playing partner took the safe route and we both par for the hole

Solid course on the way back from time in hibernation. Might not be the case but it it felt like the place is going thru a revival. Staff inviting and engaging, course was fun to play and you could see it had been of a better state previously but steps were being taken to restore to previous glory. Greens good conditions lots of ground staff out doing there thing obviously had trouble at some point with grass in greens, lot of spraying going on and repairs but still enjoyable to play. Tees and fairways in great condition, bunkers GUR as mad amount of rain for three days in a row since we booked.

Good course worth playing we got a great deal on cost but would have happily paid more. Love to play again in 6-12 months and see where the hard work has taken them !

Played Palm Meadows GC 12/2/17.Positives:-18 Holes with cart $59.50 pp - great value-Friendly and attentive staff in pro shop-Carts stocked with ice in eskies etc-Good carts with a great GPS screen-Great resort layout-Overall course in good condition, especially considering drought, greens in good condition & rolled really wellNegatives:-no drinks cart service on back 9, poor form when the course has no drinking water & it's 36*-no course marshall. The 2 groups we were behind were painfully slow & needed a hurry up-variable bunker conditions. Some bunkers had waaaaaayyyyyyy too much sand. Please take some out of the bunkers with 6-8 (no exaggeration) inches depth.Overall we really enjoyed our game here apart from the painfully slow groups in front.Would certainly play here again.

played there Sunday 8th Feb 2016.  Cost was $89 incl cart share. The Coast had quite a lot of rainfall, however the course was pretty good considering. We had an overcast day, but no rain and plenty of wind.  Many bunkers were compacted with virtually no sand due to the rain they've had. The greens were very very soft, with even 20 m chips leaving big divots. Even our shoes were creating damage.  Longer shots in left big craters.  The grass on every green was very patchy. We liked the course layout which made it an interesting round. The wind created lots of shots 50m shorter than usual. Will play it in the future when it's not so wet.  The staff were very helpful and friendly. The 3 stars a reflection of the condition of the course on the day.

Lots of aweful bunkers

Played Meadows today for first time in a long time.  I was lucky enough to work at Palm Meadows for 6 years when it first opened.  The course is really coming back up to the condition it was in the glory days of the Palm Meadows Cup.  Congrats to the team there for a real surprise.  In this condition I think Meadows is the most enjoyable course to play in the region.
