Burleigh Golf Club isn’t as famous as some of the other courses on the Gold Coast, and for the time being remains a hidden gem. Indeed, this 18-hole par-71 course of beautifully landscaped greens is one of the best we’ve played on. If you’re not ready for a full round then nine-holes can be played for half the usual rate, plus there’s driving nets and a practice fairway, putting green, chipping green and bunker. The clubhouse looks straight down the fairway and has a bar and full restaurant, making it a perfect retreat before or after a game, and for visitors who’d rather watch than play. Tee times can be booked online, and as of writing the green fees for 18 holes were $45 for visitors, rising to $70 on Saturdays. If in doubt about your attire do check online for the dress code, as those incorrectly kitted out will not be allowed to play.
