Located in the northern Gold Coast, 20 minutes from Surfers Paradise and just 45 minutes from Brisbane, Sanctuary Cove offers the very best in lifestyle living.
As part of Sanctuary Cove’s leisure lifestyle, the destination includes two championship golf courses, a Marine Village featuring more than 80 specialty stores, all-inclusive sporting and fitness centre, private Country Club, 297-berth marina and five-star Intercontinental Hotel Sanctuary Cove Resort..
Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club is a private club offering the first release of transferable equity memberships in the golf, sports and leisure facilities at Sanctuary Cove.
The club’s unrivalled offering includes the only Arnold Palmer designed course in Australia, The Pines, and Sanctuary Cove’s renowned resort course, The Palms.
As part of an $8.8 million redevelopment program The Palms has been redesigned according to a masterplan by golf course architect Ross Watson, and opened in April 2011.
Sanctuary Cove's new $13 million Golf and Country Club (pictured above) is one of the most spectacular facilities in the Australian golf arena. Completed in 2010, the state-of-the-art clubhouse forms a striking feature atop a picturesque waterfront location on The Pines.
After undergoing an $8.8 million reconstruction and a redesign by renowned golf course architect Ross Watson, The Palms golf course is considered a championship course rivalling some of the best golf courses in Australia. It has a total length of 5904 metres off the championship tees, and has numerous water features and hazards. Tee placements have been designed to suit a variety of playing conditions and a diverse playing membership.
Nestled within century old Cabbage Palms, The Palms golf course is a return to the traditions of the game, with distinctive holes, deep greenside bunkers and boldly contoured greens. Requiring creative shot making, The Palms is designed to challenge players of all abilities. “The Palms is unique because of its rustic bunker style and unique layout. The Palms is deliberately shorter and requires the player to think more about where the pin is and where they need to be aiming - It’s the thinking man’s course.” Ross Watson – Course Architect
As Australia’s only Arnold Palmer signature course, The Pines golf course is recognised as one of Australia’s best and most challenging courses. Carved through 101 hectares of established pine forest, the course features corridor approaches to several holes, with lakes guarding others. Fourteen of the holes are contoured around six man-made lakes. An abundance of wildlife features on The Pines including rare bird life and scores of native Australian kangaroos
With a scratch rating of 74 off the black tees and 72 off the blue tees the course offers a very special golfing experience. In the words of Sanctuary Cove’s touring professional, Adam Scott, “When I think of great golf in Australia, I think of The Pines at Sanctuary Cove, a true test of the game.” The Pines practice facilities include three practice holes only a short distance from the Clubhouse, two practice putting and chipping greens as well as a double-ended driving range; all set within a beautiful landscape of pine trees, native wildlife and The Pines golf course.
