Hamilton Island golf is something that has to be seen to be believed. Home to the only championship golf course on its own island in Australia, the Hamilton Island Golf Club is the country's premier golfing destination. Actually located on nearby Dent Island, the course is a thrilling and challenging experience designed by champion golfer Peter Thomson of Thomson Perrett.
The Hamilton Island Golf Club championship course is an 18-hole, 71-par facility boasting panoramic views of the Whitsunday Islands, Coral Sea and across to the Great Barrier Reef. An enjoyable course for professional golfers, weekend golfers will be able to test their skills before retiring to the clubhouse to compare scores and relax with a beer or two.
There are a number of hotels, apartments and accommodation options located on Hamilton Island and all guests staying at any of these enjoy access to a regular ferry that services the Golf Club. Without doubt one of Australia's best golfing holiday destinations, the course offers a wide range of general and premium clubs for hire as well as golf shoes. The Club also features a fully stocked retail outlet offering equipment, balls, accessories and clothing lines from leading brands including Callaway, Cross, Cutter & Buck, Ahead, Footjoy, Titleist, Annika and Sporte Leisure.
If you don't think you're quite up to the standard of the Club just yet, why not visit the aquatic driving range and get in some swinging practice. Coupled with spectacular scenery and a chance to win great prizes, the aquatic driving range is a great way to improve your skills while having a bit of fun. However if fun is the name of the game, then mini golf is the ideal way to get the whole family involved. Featuring an entertaining and challenging course with a maze of palms and plants, players of all ages will have a great time.
