About The Glades Gold Coast
This is up there! I’ve played some great Golf Courses in my life, and this is one of the best. Maybe it’s because I grew up playing bent greens (almost like I had local knowledge), but I loved the Glades. It might also be because my favourite player as a kid was Greg Norman who designed this course. Greg turned the local swamp land into an absolute gem. Great bunkering, great layout and every hole had its own character. I can’t wait to come back.
Greg Norman Design
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.
History of The Glades
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. The Glades is a par 72, 6420 metre championship course that spans 65 hectares of land.
