Kooralbyn Valley

The former home course of world No.1 Jason Day and Adam Scott – Queensland’s most challenging course.

2018 Golf Course Guide ranking:

  • #2 in QLD under its aesthetics category, just behind Hamilton Island
  • #28 in Australia in its overall ranking

The 18-hole championship course opened for play in October 1979 and two years later was chosen to host the 1981 Queensland Open – a fitting tribute to its superb layout. The first golf resort built in Australia with Greg Norman as its tour professional at the time. Renowned Scottish designer, Desmond Muirhead said that the land site was one of the best he had ever worked with.

Now, after eight years in the wilderness during the global financial crisis, Peter Huang, founder of the Yong Real Estate group, purchased and re-opened the golf course and resort in 2016. Course Superintendent Jeremy Parry set about re-designing and re-building all of the greens, the bunkers have been re-shaped and refurbished with pure white sand and a new irrigation system has been installed.

After the multi-million dollar make-over, the course is ready to impress the golfing world once again.
