The Palms is considered a championship course rivalling some of the best golf courses in Australia; The Pines is reserved exclusively for members and their guests, and presents a world class golfing experience.
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.
