Nestled within the verdant hills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Maleny Golf Club’s quality, 12-hole course provides visitors with a picturesque, Scottish-inspired, ‘golf-as-it-began’ playing experience.
Originally opened in July 2015 as a nine-hole layout, the innovative design by golf architect Graham Papworth will eventually become 18 holes.
Maleny Golf Club takes full advantage of some excellent natural assets – gentle rolling hills, well-drained volcanic soil, existing kikuyu pastures, surrounding rainforest and some wetland.
From the elevated first tee, players are presented with a panoramic view of the links-style course and an ideal vantage point from which to assess the golfing challenge ahead.
However, players will encounter some stern tests of golf along the way, including a penal kikuyu rough for those who stray from the well-defined fairways.
