The Pines is a private 18-hole championship golf course. As Australia’s only Arnold Palmer signature course, The Pines is revered as one of Australia’s best and most challenging courses with an AGU rating of 76.

Designed around 101 hectares of established pine forest The Pines features corridor approaches to several holes and 14 of the holes are contoured around stunning man-made lake. The 13th hole of the 72 par course features one of the most difficult holes in the country, and is often a source of frustration and triumph for players.

Finishing the round with a par on the par 4 18th hole is considered an achievement by many after negotiating the water hazard guarding the entire left side of the hole while avoiding the pine trees awaiting anything drifting to the right.

Reserved exclusively for members and their guests, and those staying at the nearby Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove, The Pines presents a world class golfing experience.

The new Palms Golf Course at Sanctuary Cove has returned more challenging and magnificent than ever. Strategic plays are what will win you the game, with the course surrounded by numerous bunkers and pristine lakes. The new Palms bears little resemblance to its old self with a lot of variety to keep it interesting and great fun to play.

The Palms Golf Course has recently undergone an $8.8 million reconstruction and was redesigned by renowned golf course architect Ross Watson. After its reopening in April 2011, The Palms is considered a championship course rivalling some of the best golf courses in Australia. It has a total length of 5904 metres off the championship tees, and has numerous water features and hazards. Tee placements have been designed to suit
 a variety of playing conditions and a diverse range of players. Nestled within century old Cabbage Palms, The Palms Golf Course is a return to the traditions of the game, with 
distinctive holes, deep greenside bunkers and boldly contoured greens requiring creative shot making.

The Palms is designed to challenge players of all abilities.

The course was in excellent condition, greens ran true, bunkering made it very interesting.  We enjoyed  it so much we went back a second time in spite of the hour drive past a number of other courses.

Superb course even though slightly wet today after heavy overnight rain. Played in a social club with handicappers from scratch through to 32. All had a great time. Plenty of well placed bunkers and tricky greens made for a good challenge without being too difficult. Excellent service and good food also.  Highly recommended.

I booked the round for a mate's 50th and two of the four who don't play much golf and the course provided enough challenge without being neither too easy or difficult. Enjoyed by all. The staff provided customer service that was excellent.Great Day.

Course was in great condition, fairways and greens were superb and for $79 was great value for money. Only downside the concierge was very rude on check in but the golf made up for that
