Far North Queensland

With temperatures in the high 20’s during winter, Tropical North Queensland is home to beautiful blue waters and luxury islands, but if you’re a golfer, it will be the greens that you remember.

The selection of golf courses in the area is vast and in easy reach of Cairns Airport. Sheraton Mirage Country Club & Palmer Sea Reef in Port Douglas are the highlights, but Cairns GC & Half Moon Bay GC complete a great choice of courses.

cairns golf club


Designer: Ross Watson (re-design)

Established: 1930

Location:  easy 5 min drive from Cairns town centre & 10 mins from the Airport

Facilities: pro shop, restaurant, bar, locker rooms & driving range

Cairns Golf Club is set amid spectacular mountain scenery.  The course features generous fairways and large greens making it player-friendly for members & social players.  However, for all major events the course proves a more challenging test. With the tees back and the pins tricky, suddenly friendly becomes mean and the course proves that it can bite back.

Designer: Thomson, Wolveridge & Perrett

Established: 2000

Location: 1-hour drive from Cairns

Facilities: resort accommodation, pro shop, restaurant, bar, locker rooms & driving range

Located in beautiful Port Douglas in Tropical North Queensland, Palmer Reef Resort (formerly Sea Temple Golf & Country Club) offers a links-style course with water hazards and undulating greens and fairways, not to mention the wonderful contrast of the Great Barrier Reef and the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest.

Mirage Country Club is rated one of the truly great resort courses.
