PUBLIC ACCESS FEATURE 72 April 2016 | www.insidegolf.com.au QueeNslaND links Hope island and Noosa springs Technically the two courses are chalk and cheese. One is a championship links layout with rolling fairways and pot bunkers; the other a traditional resort course with tree- lined fairways, sparkling lakes and delightful scenery. What Links Hope Island and Noosa Springs have in common, though, is their undoubted quality. They’re both rated among the top resort courses in the country – and they’re getting better year by year. Owned in the same interests, the two great golf courses – one on the northern outskirts of the Golf Coast; the other walking distance from Noosa’s famous Hastings St – offer a delightful experience for golfers of all levels. The Peter Thomson-Mike Wolveridge- designed Links Hope Island layout is only 23 years old – yet it’s already hosted a Johnnie Walker Classic and a Qantas Legends Golf Classic, and is on every golfer’s ‘bucket list’ of courses to play. Set in a 360ha residential resort community, Links Hope Island is a beautiful 6500m par 72 layout, with 128 bunkers and plenty of water to hold any player’s attention. Local resident Peter Senior, who plays the course as often as anybody, declares it to be “one of the best championship links courses you’ll play.” A 20-minute drive from Surfers Paradise and 40 minutes from Brisbane, Links Hope Island is centrally located for holiday-makers and residents of the south-east corner of Queensland. Noosa Springs, too, is easily accessible to holiday-makers, being situated so close to iconic Noosa Heads. Designed by Graham Papworth, the par-72 6180m course meanders its way through tropical bushland, creating a tranquil setting to an enjoyable, yet challenging, round of golf. Both courses are complemented by superb clubhouse facilities, well-stocked pro shops and, should you wish (or need) it, some of the country’s highest-regarded teaching professionals. For two courses of such fine quality, Links Hope Island and Noosa Springs are remarkably welcoming to visitors. Staff are friendly and obliging and visitors are greeted with warmth and hospitality. Staff and management are proud of their courses and keen to show them off. Casual green fees (for 18 holes) are set at $140 for Links Hope Island and $120 for Noosa Springs. Right now there is a special offer available that allows golfers to play both courses for just $199.
