RACV Royal Pines Golf Club
RACV Royal Pines Resort’s championship course has three 18 hole combinations.
The flowing waters of the Nerang River frame the Gold course with both fresh and salt-water lakes coming into play on nine of the eighteen holes.
Embraced by lush native vegetation and the beautifully manicured gardens of our Eastside residential precinct, the Green course is a golfing oasis of emerald greens and hidden challenges. To finish, a testing final 9 holes combines deep bunkers with undulating greens and tight fairways to provide an all-encompassing golf experience.
About RACV Royal Pines Gold Coast
The Ladies’ Masters. Well, it looks nice but this course is for the girls!!! Then I had a go off the backmarkers. How good is this? Risk and reward. I had a go at short par 4’s whoops in the bunker, whoops in the water. OK, I’ll get this par 5 in two shots, no way. OK, these girls are good!!! Can’t wait to come back with my tail between my legs and try it off the Ladies’ tees.
Who Designed Royal Pines
Tomojiro Maruyama, a Japanese Golf Course Architect, was engaged by MID (the original owners) to design the Resort’s course, which was opened in 1990. In early 2002 preparations began for a complete re-design on the western side of the resort for a new nine-hole course. The new 9 holes were designed by Graham Marsh Golf Design and opened in 2004.
