If the golf course wasn't enough, the kangaroo's and wildlife were abundant. The tip of the day was to forgo length for accuracy and that turned out to be the best tip for this golf course. We had a great welcome and were chaperoned by BJ (top man). What a pleasure to play, if you could forget about all the... More

Had an early morning round in the most benign conditions, zero wind, overcast skies, soft receptive greens, and loved it. Good variety of holes and approaches. Water not in play as much as I thought and plenty of room on most fariways. Not overly long either. Great Titleist AP-1 irons and drivers on loan.

This was the third of the courses we played in three days. The wind had picked up and I had to use about 1-2 extra in order to get the same distance. It was a tricky course with spectacular approach/tee shots over water and bunkers galore. It was a very good test of golf and you needed to ensure you... More

The Pines at Sanctuary Cove has long been regarded as a very good test of golf. Meandering through the pine trees the reasonably generous fairways cross waterways and are lined with strategically placed bunkers awaiting errant balls. The new Clubhouse is excellent . A must do for the golfer visiting the Gold Coast.

I was here on business that finished up early. We were able to sneak out for 18 holes. The golf was great. I probably saw the greatest number of Kangaroos in the "wild" in all my trips "down under". The course was a little pricey (but not so much for an American not that the exchange is back to more... More

Got up early to have 9 holes before a conference. On the 1st around 6:45. Wonderful early morning, lots of animals around. Lovely 'resort'style course, reasonably short, quite wide fairways and very pretty.....enjoyed it

This park is good, but it lacks animals. Most of it just a place to walk around w/o anything to see. The kangaroos look tired of crowds same as other animals (if you could see them in their hideout). The mini train is good. If you're after good animals experience you better visit Lone Pine Coala Sanctuary.

This golf course ticked everything I wanted in a course - challenging, scenic, immaculate fairways and greens, and interesting. Highly recommended!

So upmarket. Way too expensive for me. The shops, restaurants etc are nice, but not a lot to see unless you like golf or boating. Those massive, expensive boats are a sight to see. Worth a look and cost millions. Everyone drives around in golf buggies.
