The first thing you notice about Maroochy River Golf Club is the spectacular view to Mount Coolum. Undulating fairways and breathtaking water features sit proudly below one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the Sunshine Coast.
Since opening in June 2015, Maroochy River Golf Club has really blossomed into a world class destination, with an impressive average of 80,000 rounds per year.
The Graham Marsh-designed layout will challenge all level of players and leave you wanting to come back for more. When Marsh designed and built Maroochy River he promised a gutsy (risk-and-reward) course, and he certainly delivered.
The course is rated #54 in Australia’s Top 100 Public Access Courses, and is named in Australia’s Top 100 Golf Courses debuting at #76.
At Maroochy River there is one superb hole after another, featuring stunning drives and greens protected by bunkers, plenty of water and a family of black swans if you are lucky enough to see them.
Profoundly different to any other course in Queensland, the links-style layout winds its way through strategic waterways and wetlands. It has matured beautifully and is described by members and visitors alike as an “awesome experience”.
“We have many repeat visitors who just love the place,” said general manager Charlie McGill.
The course has held 8 State titles and 2 National titles including the 2019 Australian Men’s Senior Amateur Championships. The Schweppes PGA Legends Pro-Am is a 2-day featured event on the calendar.
For those golfers who enjoy warming up before a round, Maroochy River Golf Course has an excellent driving range and practice facilities. Just like the golf course, it has that wow factor.
After your game, head to the Cane Cutters Bar & Bistro where recent bar renovations include a fabulous, terraced deck. The modern clubhouse, which has magnificent views north to Mt Coolum, will delight any visitor especially at sunset, sipping on a cocktail, or enjoying great food at a great price. Check out their new menu too.
For a family fun activity, head over to the Mini Golf Course, which is open 7 days from 9am until late. It has been described as one of the best in Australia and has proven to be very popular. This is a great way to let the family have some fun too, the kids will love it. The facility is fully licenced and floodlit for all day play.
