Gold Coast Sports & Outdoors: 16 reviews and 18 photos

Aside from surfing, if there is one thing the Gold Coast has a ton of, it's golf courses. These range from the Merrimac hackers, which is literally a cow paddock, to the very exclusive private courses of Arundel Hills and the Grand.

For the most part you can get a round plus cart for about $50-75 at a decent course like Emerald Lakes, where they hold the Queensland PGA. For a slightly better course, say Royal Pines or Lakelands, the only Jack Nicklaus designed course in Australia, it will set you back about $100.

Equipment: Most courses will insist that each player has their own set of clubs. If you don't want to bring them with you, most pro shops have them to hire at varying rates depending on the clubs.

Many of the better courses offer a free hotel pick up and drop off service as well.
