The beautiful layout has withstood the test of time since it was founded in 1968. It was created to be a members’ course, but it didn’t stop the club hosting the Australian PGA Championship within two years of opening. Bruce Devlin captured the title in 1970 (making it back-to-back titles), while Billy Dunk shot 15 under for four rounds to win the following year.

Today, Surfers is an easy-walking par-71, which measures 5,841 metres from the tips so you don’t have to be long from the tee to get value for your good shots.

The fairways are a little more tree-lined than they were in Devlin and Dunk’s days, but generally there is enough room from tee-to-green to regularly pull the driver from the bag. However, there are no shortage of fairway bunkers and water hazards to be avoided.

The club is owned and operated by and for the members, both men and women. The club hosts competition golf six days a week including mixed competitions every Friday and Sunday or non-competition golf every day if you prefer.

Surfers Paradise Golf Club offers a wide range of membership options including three-, five- and seven-day memberships, seven-day twilight membership as well as junior and cadet membership.

A seven-day membership offers unrestricted use of the golf club facilities, seven-day playing rights, voting rights, unrestricted competition play bookings, no green fees, eligibility to rent a buggy shed as well as one additional junior or cadet membership free.

These are just some of the benefits of playing a round at the Surfers Paradise Golf Club, but the greatest benefit of all is the enjoyment from playing at the ‘friendliest golf club on the Coast’.
