One hour north of Brisbane at Golden Beach, this was Greg Norman's first course on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. With the sea as a backdrop, and in the other direction the majestic Glasshouse Mountains, this site seemed unpromising territory for golf when the course was carved out of swampy bush-land. Norman then introduced as many indigenous features as possible; amid abundant local trees and bushes he added bunkers and made sensitive use of water hazards. While lakes on Florida courses tend to look as pre-planned as they are, here they look like part of the landscape. The one drawback to the course is its tendency to remain wet after heavy rain. There is a pleasant, understated feel to Club Pelican; a nice but not flashy clubhouse offers views out over the course. The course also features one excellent innovation, a moveable shed on the practice ground for sunny or rainy days.

Another cool Greg Norman designed course. The 18 holes take the golfer on native Australian bushland and waterway adventure. The fairways are in excellent condition as were the greens, and despite the recent rain, the bunkers held up rather well. The greens are narrow, yet long in parts, and most of the water is found on the front nine, though the 14th has to be one of the better Par 3's on the sunshine coast. Good use of short and long Par 3 and 4's, the course has essentially two 9 hole loops and the front nine is the stronger of the two! Directional change here is natural, as the course was built around the waterways and bushland. Elevation change is minimal but this doesn't take anything away from the design. A couple of weak holes but it remains a good fun track to play for any level of golfer!
