Hamilton Island holidays are known for many things - rest, relaxation, soft white sand beaches, beautiful azure waters and the famous Great Barrier Reef. However the island holiday resort is also known for its world-class golfing. With a par 71, 18-hole championship oceanfront links course just minutes away on Dent Island, it's certainly one of Australia's most unique and beautiful golfing destinations. With an aquatic driving range and mini-golf course, Hamilton Island golf holidays offer fun for the whole family.
One of the most popular Hamilton Island activities, the golfing on offer here has to be seen to be believed. Making the most of the island's ridges and valleys, the Hamilton Island Golf Club features spectacular 360 degree vistas of the Whitsundays and challenging dunes that make for an interesting game. Australia's only championship golf course on its own island, the Hamilton Island Golf Club is the country's premier golf destination. Designed by championship golfer Peter Thomson of Thomson Perrett, the course is a thrilling experience for golfers of all skill levels.
The club offers a variety of general and premium clubs for rent as well as golf shoes and there is a fully stocked retail outlet with all the equipment you'll need including balls, accessories and even clothing from iconic brands such as Titleist, Callaway, Footjoy, Cutter & Buck, Sporte Leisure, Cross, Annika and Ahead. When you've finished playing a round, guests are invited to retire to the clubhouse to compare scores, celebrate that hole-in-one or just relax with a beer and a leisurely meal. If you don't think you're quite ready for the club just yet, there's also an aquatic driving range where you can work on your skills with some swinging practice and a mini-golf course with an entertaining maze of plants and palms that offers fun for the whole family.
