The Glades Golf Club boasts the reputation as one of Australia’s most prestigious resort golf courses on the Gold Coast. Designed by champion Australian golfing icon, Greg Norman, the course is typical of his trademark aggressive layouts offering golfers a challenging round of golf with visually stunning surrounds.

The Glades greens are unique to any other golf course on the Gold Coast and will ensure a superior putting surface all year round as they consist of a new type of “Creeping bent grass” that offers a true putting surface and is the preference of professionals and amateurs alike.

Greg Norman is renowned for his bunkering worldwide and the Glades does not disappoint with a total of 98 bunkers. Greg not only had a vision to create a challenging golf course on the Gold Coast, but he also retained 9 hectares of wetland area to create a natural wildlife sanctuary within the course.

This course, noted for its stunning water feature and clubhouse, is described as one of Greg Norman’s ‘best ever’ designs. The Glades was the highest ranked golf course on debut and rated No.8 resort course in Australia in Golf Australia’s 2001 rankings.
