Thinking of enjoying a game of golf? Not sure where to tee it up? The good news is you are blessed with an exceptional choice with Brisbane and the wider area home to some of Australia’s best golf courses.
Where better to play golf than in the Sunshine State? The best golf courses available for you to play in Brisbane are outlined below.
Royal Queensland Golf Club
One of the best courses in Australia, not just Queensland, the Royal Queensland Golf Club has a rich history. Located in Eagle Farm, the course has hosted the Australian Open Championship three times in 1947, 1966 and 1973 and is in the mix to do so again. The layout has undergone changes over the years and now has a blend of design elements from Carnegie Clark, a three-time Australian Open champion, Dr Alister MacKenzie and Michael Clayton.
Brookwater Golf & Country Club
Located south west of Brisbane, Brookwater Golf & Country Club is one of a number of courses in Queensland that have been designed by Greg Norman. Brookvale is set in picturesque bushland and has been carved out of eucalyptus forests. Given a huge redesign in 2017, Brookvale features two loops of nine holes and the championship course has been likened to Augusta National, home of the US Masters.
The Brisbane Golf Club
The Brisbane Golf Club is one of the oldest and modest historic, dating back to 1896 and more specifically 1902 at its current home in the city. Situated close to the river in Yeerongpilly, the venue has hosted the prestigious Queensland Open numerous times. Famed for slicks greens, the Brisbane has 21 holes with 18 of them used to create a course from one day to the next.
Indooroopilly Golf Club
Indooroopilly Golf Club is situated on the opposite side of the river to the Brisbane Golf Club, and is one of the biggest courses in the city. There are 36 holes to choose from and six courses made up across the parkland layout to give a huge variety of options to play. You might be in the heart of Brisbane, but Indooroopilly offers one of the most quiet and peaceful locations.
Pacific Harbour Golf & Country Club
A long par-5 or more up the coast at Banksia Beach, Pacific Harbour Golf & Country Club is well worth the trip north out of Brisbane. Water is everywhere with the holes created through wetlands and watercourses. This 18-hole facility is a real gem.
Royal Pines Golf Club
Operated by the Royal Automobile Club of Australia, Royal Pines is one of the country’s finest golf courses. It’s a trip to the Gold Coast if you want to play some of the 36 holes at this first class facility, but it is more than worth it. Royal Pines plays host to LPGA and Australian PGA Tour events as the world’s best golfers flock to Queensland.
Victoria Park Golf Club
In the heart of the city in Herston, Victoria Park Golf Club is a short wedge shot from the CBD and is the ideal place to play after a hard day in the office. Or alternatively you can nip down and use the practice facilities in your lunch break or before clocking on. Set against the backdrop of the city, the 18-hole course is accompanied by a pitch and putt course, a driving range and has excellent practice facilities too.
