Seven courses make their debut in Golf Australia's biennial list, which only counts venues that offer tee times to the public at least five days per week.
Coffs Harbour (Lakes Course) makes its maiden appearance at 98th, as do Shelly Beach (86th), Mornington (84th), The Sands Torquay (82nd), Macquarie Links International (78th), Maroochy River (65th) and Mt Compass (59th).
Up the pointy end of the list, the top four positions were taken up by Tasmanian courses: Ocean Dunes (4th), Barnbougle Lost Farm (3rd), Barnbougle Dunes (2nd) and Cape Wickham which topped the list for the second time in a row.
Most of the big movers came from New South Wales.
Coolangatta Tweed Heads will be savouring its improvement with its River course up 10 to 66th and its West Course leaping 14 spots to 77th.
