Club Review

Palmer Colonial

palmer colonial

Palmer Colonial was originally built by Nara Australia Pty Ltd. In 1992 the course opened as Paradise Springs Golf Course. Designed by Mitsuaki Kobayashi, boasts of beautifully groomed fairways and meticulously manicured greens, widely regarded as being in the best condition on the Gold Coast.
The distinguishing feature of the course is the clubhouse, with its Colonial, Queenslander design. Designed by Alan Griffith Architects, it continues to be the focus of the venue.
A farmland once home to cows, weeds and bush has been transformed into a beautifully groomed course with lush fairways and meticulously manicured greens.The 6,424 metre, par 72, championship resort layout, meanders its way through 39 hectares of towering eucalyptus, picturesque lakes and serene waterways. Flowering native and exotic trees and plants abound, while ornate bridges cross watercourses in which luxuriant lilies jostle for space.
Off the course, the stunning Queenslander-style clubhouse welcomes both golfers and visitors alike. Wide, breeze-catching verandahs surround the building, offering wide views over the golf course and the Gold Coast Hinterland.
