The Glades sounds like the title of some old black-and-white movie in which the hero fights his way through a sinister forest and into a small opening where he stumbles upon the villain’s brutally mugged victim.

Ladies Masters and the final of the Holden Scramble.

 

PALM MEADOWS Golf Course

Greg Norman represented Palm Meadows as Touring Professional and his tips in the 1990
Daikyo Cup course guide are a great collector’s item. The course is flat, but has a series of interconnected lakes (water on 14 holes) and strategic bunkering (82 bunkers) to add to the
challenge. Designed by Graham Marsh, the fairways are generous and played from the regular
tees should provide some encouraging scores.

The finishing hole is one of the best par 5’s in Australia, requiring an audacious water carry for
big hitters but providing a safer three shot route for others, with a second water crossing
before the green. Club House bar and restaurants overlook the 18th.

PARADISE SPRINGS Golf Course

Beautifully groomed with lush, very gently undulating to flat fairways and meticulously
manicured type 328 couch greens. Widely regarded as one of the Gold Coast’s best –
conditioned courses, the major hazards are the myriad of sparkling ponds and waterways
that provide both storage and drainage.

There’s a club Comp. Wed & Sat. Visitors with AGU & WGA handicaps are welcome to join in.

Gold Coast Resort style. Set in naturally undulating bushland the course combines established
eucalypts with imported palm trees. There is a series of lakes and ponds in play on many holes, with the ninth green almost surrounded by water. The elevated clubhouse overlooks eight holes and
visitors will be made most welcome. Competitions are played on several days. Visiting golfers
welcome to enter.

ROBINA WOODS Golf Course

Designed by Marsh & Watson and opened in 1989, Robina is one of the best tests of golf in
Australia. The rolling fairways are set amongst stately stands of towering eucalypts, natural
waterways and lakes. There are some hills to climb, but many golfers will prefer to walk. The
course has superb drainage and is open year round.

Each hole has its own character, and challenge. The finishing hole is Robina’s most
recognisable, a par 5 played from an elevated tee via three water hazards to a well guarded
green. Our advice is "lay up with your second (or third)".

There are full clubhouse facilities, bistro/bar, restaurant and function room, locker room and
showers. Visitors are welcome every day. Competitions run 7 days per week with 3 Major
Opens on Mon, Tues & Thur.
