Situated within 65 hectares of undulating woodlands, Robina Woods is one of the most popular public access golf courses in southeast Queensland. With holes built through natural forests of towering Eucalypts full of indigenous wildlife, the course is a peaceful digression from the hustle and bustle of a busy Gold Coast, only minutes away.
The front nine is played mostly through natural wooded gullies with plenty of dramatic elevation change, while the back nine is a tale of two parts starting on a flatter and less interesting reclaimed floodplain, then heading back into the elevated gully terrain for the scenic and stirring climax.
The pick of the front nine is the downhill left sweeping 6th hole, which like a number of early holes favours the player who can hit a strong draw. On the back the most memorable is the par five 18th, played from a spectacular elevated tee the final fairway incorporates three lakes as it heads toward an attractive green set beneath the grand multi-level clubhouse.
Robina Woods was purchased by Queensland businessman Clive Palmer and renamed the Palmer Gold Coast Golf Course.
