Port Douglas Golfers Guide

If you’re hoping for some laid-back golfing action while you’re holidaying in sunny Port Douglas, we’ve got some good news for you! Port is home to some of the most impressive golf courses in Australia, and there will be no surprise when we say that some have even been ranked amongst the world’s best.

Our team at Pools Resort has developed this guide so you can quickly and easily decide which golf course will suit you best. There are a few spectacular options to choose from, but we know you’ll have a fantastic time regardless.

There isn’t much that beats playing in beautiful FNQ, so let’s get to it – here are the top picks!

Sheraton Mirage Country Club

The Mirage Country Club within the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort offers a world class course that will be sure to deliver the ultimate golfing experience for your trip. This iconic location borders the gorgeous Four Mile Beach and is surrounded by scenic mountain views. The setting is luxurious and the staff are always accommodating – there’s no better place to get out on the greens!

If you get the chance, make sure to check out the recently re-opened aquatic driving range with breathtaking views of Mt. Demi and the Mossman Gorge.

After your round, we recommend making a day out of it and utilising the Sheraton’s facilities for a bit of added fun. Jump in the lap pool to cool off, hit the gym and sauna or hire some gear for a game of tennis or two.

COURSE: 6200m: 6 x par threes, 6 x par fours and 6 x par fives.

The impressive greens and fairways are maintained immaculately year round to ensure you have the best game possible during your time in dreamy Port Douglas!

This tropical links experience boasts a challenging course with 89 bunkers, and there are coaching lessons available for any novice players or first timers. There are options for every level at each tee, so each player will be sure to get the most out of their shot. To top things off, you’ll get to admire picturesque views of lakes and ancient rainforests throughout the day.

The team look forward to welcoming you into the Clubhouse for a refreshing drink after your round – what a brilliant way to end the day!
