Links Hope Island is located just 20 minutes’ drive from Surfers Paradise. It is one of Australia’s best resort golf courses, the highest ranked publicly accessible course on the Gold Coast and is regarded by many as Peter Thomson’s finest architectural design. It is a true links-style layout with humps, hollows and 128 white sand pot bunkers. Strategic thinking is therefore required, not least to avoid the numerous natural and man-made water hazards around which many of the holes are shaped. The course is also designed with consideration of the prevailing wind direction. The course and facilities at Links Hope Island are 5-star all the way.
