About Palm Meadows Golf Club Gold Coast
My Favourite! Palm Meadows has to be the best layout on the Coast. The 18th hole is one of the great finishing holes in Australia. I remember standing on the tee in 1990 for the play-off for the Palm Meadows Cup. Roger Davis drove it over the water and Curtis Strange (playing it safe) said to his caddy 2 iron please. I ran around to the back of the green to see Curtis miss his birdie putt and Roger make the eagle. They walked off the green and Roger said Wow, do you want a beer Curtis! Since then I think I’m Roger every time I get to the tee. By the time I walk off the green I can’t wait for that beer.
