Dramatic terrain. Breathtaking views. The new Hamilton Island Golf Club, at the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, is the only 18-hole golf course on its own island in Australia, offering some of the most spectacular views and settings of any golf course in the world. Designed by five-time British Open winner Peter Thomson, the Hamilton Island Golf Club is the perfect destination for your next Australian golfing holiday. The par 71 championship Hamilton Island Golf Club is located on neighbouring Dent Island, and can be reached by a quick ferry ride from the Hamilton Island Marina. The outward nine holes are a more compact layout around the centre of the island and the inward nine are strung out along the ridges to the south.
