The Scenic Rim has five golf facilities spread across the region, each with a unique history and offering. All courses welcome visitors locally or from afar to come and experience what they have on offer.
Two of the courses are 18-hole layouts with the other three offering 9 holes, but 18-holes can be played from different tee boxes. They are suited for players of all levels to enjoy.
Beaudesert Golf Club
ABOUT: 18 holes on gently undulating land with tree-lined fairways and carefully maintained grass greens irrigated daily using recycled water from the main dam. A small creek flows through the course with a variety of creatures enjoying the natural habitat provided.
ABOUT: The course opened in 1972 and has been designed to accommodate players of all skill levels with minimal bunkering and water hazards yet still a challenging layout.
It is predominantly flat but with a couple of elevated tees, tight in places with small couch greens to test approach accuracy.
The shortest par 3 at 138m requires a delicately placed shot to hold the green and the longest par 5 at 514m offers a wide fairway with the last 100m uphill to an elevated bunkered green to test the best of the big-hitters.
