The Resort

Ninety minutes north of Brisbane on the tropical Sunshine Coast, The Former Hyatt Coolum Golf Resort, now Palmer Coolum Resort, nestles amidst forty acres of bushland and rain forest fronting a two kilometre long sandy beach. Australia's finest resort, the resort features a variety of accommodation and dining venues, a dedicated Activities Centre, a full Tennis Centre, a state-of-the-art Spa and a Robert Trent Jones’s tournament golf course.

Accommodation is formed by discrete clusters of low-rise suites and villas distributed across the tranquil grounds of the property. The resort boasts a variety of dining choices and has a dedicated Activities Centre that provides a wide range of options. Amongst these are nines sparkling  swimming pools, a Tennis Centre with nine floodlit courts, a two kilometre long patrolled sandy beach and a Spa. 

Home of the Australian PGA Championship, Coolum was designed by famous architect Robert Trent Jones Junior. Covering one third of the resort grounds, the layout offers a unique blend of contrasting landscape, from the windswept holes adjoining the Pacific Ocean to the manicured fairways of the inland holes that drift through native bushland, with the ever present backdrop of Mount Coolum - a Sunshine Coast landmark. The golf course is complemented by an extensive range of practice facilities and the Golf Improvement Centre.

• Mount Coolum Golf Club

At the foot of the landmark Mt. Coolum, a relatively flat course with water in play on twelve holes. Feature holes of'Amen's Corner'where two par fives and a par three wind around beautiful water hazards

• Pelican Waters Golf Club

Greg Norman & Bob Harrison (2002)

Considered as one of the Top new design in the country, Pelican Waters is situated in the Golden Beach area near Caloundra. The course lies on relatively flat land with creeks coming into play at nearly every hole where wayward approach shots will be severely punished. The course is laid out in two loops of nine and on top of water hazards, there are nearly one hundred bunkers – some of them enormous – to further complicate matters on the fairway landing areas and greenside.

• Noosa Springs Golf Club

Graham Papworth (1999)

Set among the perfect backdrop of Noosa's National Park and the pristine Lake Weyba, this 18 hole championship golf course promises to enthral. Designed to inspire and challenge players of all levels. The gently undulating fairways are surrounded by forests of blackwood, melaleuca and tropical rainforest. Several lakes fed by natural springs are in play on many holes.

• Twin Waters Golf Club

Peter Thomson & Mike Wolveridge (1989) 

The course is internationally recognised as one of the top six resort courses in Australia – naturally it’s the best on the Sunshine Coast. The 18 hole, par 72 championship course was designed by five times British Open champion Peter Thomson and partner Mike Wolveridge. The stunning setting and challenging layout combine to produce an enjoyable game of golf for all players. Generous rolling fairways with mounds and pot bunkers - the bunker beside the 8th green has been compared with St Andrews Road Hole bunker. Relatively flat course with plenty of water in a natural bush setting.
