Hamilton Island Golf Club
Hamilton Island Golf Club has some of the most spectacular views of any course in the world.
Designed by champion golfer Peter Thomson of Thomson Perrett, the par 71 championship
sits on neighbouring Dent Island. Measuring 6,120 metres (6692 yards). it is the only 18 hole
golf course on its own island in Australia. It has been designed to challenge all levels of golf
enthusiasts, from novice to professional golfers. It encompasses a series of holes strung along
the ridges and played across steep valleys. Given the changes in course elevation; restricted
landing areas and the ever-present breezes will provide a definite challenge from the back tees
and enjoyable resort golf from the forward marks. Two distinctly different nine hole circuits
return to a central clubhouse with panoramic views of Dent Passage and Hamilton Island. The
outward nine holes are a more compact layout around the centre of the island and the inward
nine are strung out along the ridges to the south. The island’s natural and rugged beauty,
together with its mountainous terrain affords stunning 360 degree views across secluded coves
and beaches to adjacent passages and islands, and the mainland beyond.
A neat dress code applies and soft spikes are required. Bookings are essential.
Club House: features a restaurant and bar, open for lunch daily between 11am – 3pm
