Course Tour

Located on the stunning Gold Coast, a short drive from the excitement of Surfers Paradise and under an hour away from the bustling Brisbane CBD, Links Golf & Wellbeing is the centrepiece of Hope Island Resort. With its 5-Star facilities and consistently high rankings amongst Australia’s leading resort courses, the Hope Island Golf Course is the ultimate destination for corporate and social golf, functions and events.

Your day begins with a friendly welcome from our concierge and may include a meal on the Terrace. A careful and thoughtful approach is required while you navigate the Par 72 course, avoiding the natural and man-made hazards including numerous strategically positioned pot style bunkers.

Late in the round, the Hope Island’s signature hole, the Par 3 17th, is a challenge for any golfer and is an experience in courage or folly. At 224m off the black tees and 180m off the whites and a lengthy carry across water, many players will struggle to reach the green due to the prevailing headwind. One may therefore consider playing this as a par 4 rather than a par 3, but then again, golf is all about decisions.

The finishing hole, the par 5 18th, provides visitors with a magnificent view back along the lake to the left and towards the clubhouse in the distance. With over 500 metres remaining to your round, there is plenty yet to see and negotiate. A delightful end to an enjoyable day.

Links Golf & Wellbeing welcomes visitors and there are plenty of opportunities for Public, Corporate and Social Golf Packages to be arranged through the Club. We look forward to welcoming you to the Club and having you experience the facilities and service Links Hope Island is renowned for.

  • Always keep pace with the group in front of you.
