18-hole, par 71 championship island golf course
Designed by champion golfer, Peter Thomson, the par 71 championship Hamilton Island Golf Club on neighbouring Dent Island measures 6,704 yards/6,130 metres. The only championship island golf course in Australia, the course has been designed to challenge all levels of golf enthusiasts, from resort guests to professional golfers.
Dent Island's natural and rugged beauty together with its mountainous terrain offered the designers a stunning canvas on which to design an extremely unique and breathtaking course. The design and construction has been carefully planned to ensure minimal disruption to the unique and sensitive environment, and with strict adherence to the guidelines set out by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Water.
The golf course master plan has been developed by Thomson-Perrett. The principals of the firm are Peter Thomson AO CBE, former professional golfer and five-times British Open winner with more than 40 years experience in golf course design, and Ross Perrett, Planner, Architect, Landscape Architect and golf course designer with over 25 years experience.

The stunning Chris Beckingham-designed golf Clubhouse shows an environmentally sensitive structure that blends almost seamlessly with its surroundings, offering spectacular views to the southeast toward Pentecost Island and beyond.
Clubhouse designer Chris Beckingham is a renowned local architect known for his use of local materials that work within the natural environment to create a sense of balance and well being, with a particular Australian tropical edge. Chris also has a personal love for tropical New Guinean architecture; a passion he developed through years spent working in Papua New Guinea.
