Overview
More
Palmer Sea Reef Golf Course is located in Port Douglas, Queensland, and is Far North Queensland's premier golfing experience. The course designed by Thompson, Wolveridge and Perrett is Australia's only tropical links style golf course. The 18 hole layout, set between the rolling mountains and the Coral sea, provides both the recreational and professional golfer a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The club house set overlooking the lush tropical rain forest is open for breakfast and lunch daily, and the Sunday Roast is a must. Whether you are looking for a game of golf, or just to relax on the deck for lunch and a drink, then don't miss the Palmer Sea Reef Golf Course.

I have played this course 6 times over the last 15 years. I expected it to be run down due to the ownership . It turn out to be in great shape and still by a mile the best course in Port Douglas.

I played two rounds here. Great staff particularly the head pro. I like the layout although it is devoid of elevation change. The biggest disappointment was the height of the grass. The fairways were long and so were the greens which led for painfully slow...More
