Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club


The re-designed Palms course opened in April 2011 and presents golfers with a wonderful
challenge as it meanders through century old cabbage palm trees and manicured fairways. It
has recently undergone an $8.8 million reconstruction and was redesigned by renowned golf
course architect Ross Watson. The Palms is considered a championship course rivaling some
of the best golf courses in Australia. It has a total length of 5904 metres off the championship
tees, and has numerous water features and hazards.

Tee placements have been designed to suit
 a variety of playing conditions and a diverse range
of players. The course is a return to the traditions of the game, with 
distinctive holes, deep
greenside bunkers and boldly contoured greens requiring creative shot making. The Palms is
designed to challenge players of all abilities.

The Pines course is highly regarded. It’s private and exclusive to Members and Intercontinental
Sanctuary Cove Resort guests only. Equity memberships available. As Australia’s only Arnold
Palmer signature course, The Pines is recognised as one of Australia’s best and most
challenging courses. Carved through 101 hectares of established pine forest, the course
features corridor approaches to several holes, with lakes guarding others. Fourteen of the
holes are contoured around six man-made lakes. An abundance of wildlife features on The
Pines including rare bird life and scores of native Australian kangaroos. With a course rating of
74 off the black tees and 72 off the blue tees the course offers a very special golfing
