Money was no object in the construction of this course, Jack Nicklaus's first in Australia. The choice selection of grasses includes Windsor Green on the fairways and on the greens resilient tidwarf for firmness and accuracy. Nicklaus as usual designed spacious fairways that narrow progressively and well-defended greens. The American style shows in the careful placement of the water hazards. Every club and the golfer's full range of skills will be necessary to cope with the highly distinctive holes. The course's 6500 meter length challenges the top players, while the wide range of tees caters to every skill level. A choice of tees that makes the most of the short game will make for a pleasant round; golfers who focus on long shots will come away tired and with fewer balls. Like any contemporary course, the Lakelands invites the player in with its fine clubhouse and practice facilities.

Lakelands Golf Club is the first Jack Nicklaus golf course is Australia, it's a beautifully manicured course up on the Gold Coast in QLD. A very good test for all golfers, featuring some excellent bunkering work, and great use of water. This course is where I had my second best round ever with and 84 off the stick. A 60-foot birdie on the 3rd helped! This wonderful course can be played all year round which is great for us southerners! Sad news recently with the course likely to go away from it's private status and turn to a public course, hopefully this doesn't ruin the Windsor green fairways! Having my in laws live in the Gold Coast area means I'll definitely be back to play here
