“One of the best championship
  Links courses you’ll play”
                         -Peter Senior
Welcome to Links Hope Island
We are delighted you are considering making Links your home Club. You will find included in our
brochure the information you will need to maximise your enjoyment of the Club and it’s facilities.

Since opening in March 1993, the golf course at Hope Island has consistently ranked in Australia’s top ten
resort courses. Host to the 1997 Johnnie Walker Classic and Qantas Legends Golf Classic, the course is
both nationally and internationally renowned. Designed by five times British Open Champion, Peter
Thomson and partner, Mike Wolveridge, it is rated by Australian golfing legend, Peter Senior, as “one of
the best championship Links courses you will play”. An iconic course, it remains the centrepiece of Hope
Island Resort located on the north shore of the Gold Coast, just 25 minutes from Surfers Paradise and 45
minutes from the Brisbane CBD.

The layout is the centrepiece to the 360 ha Hope Island Resort community and the par 71 course
measures approximately 6,300 metres off the championship tees. Careful strategic thinking must be
employed around the natural and man made hazards and 128 challenging pot style bunkers. Other
facilities include a concierge bag drop and electric carts further enhance your golfing experience.

While an intangible asset in one sense, a primary point of difference with Links Hope Island is the
atmosphere of friendship and sportsmanship that prevails. Relatively young as a club by some standards,
it’s comparative youth has encouraged a progressive attitude resulting in the absence of outmoded
attitudes and a warm camaraderie between members, guests and staff.
