The Courses

Royal Canberra

Royal Canberra

Gary Player called it "The Most Beautiful Course in Australia". And his point is hard to argue. A picturesque setting, with some truly world-class golf awaits all who are lucky enough to tread the fairways of Royal Canberra. Set amidst the magnificent Westbourne Woods arboretum, Royal Canberra offers world class facilities and a 27 hole Championship course.

Federal GC

Federal GC

The 18 hole championship course features pristine Santa Ana couch fairways and quality bent grass greens which are protected by well-placed bunkers. The bushland setting features grand views of the Brindabella Ranges, contributing to the special place that is Federal Golf Course. The course has featured in the Golf Digest Top 100 Australian Courses, with a current ranking of 48 in Golf Australia’s best public access courses.

Gold Creek

Gold Creek Country Club

A true 18-hole championship layout, Gold Creek CC was designed by well-known and internationally-acclaimed Australian golfer and course architect, Bruce Devlin.  Opened in 1996, the course offers a great test for golfers of all abilities and strategy is key to play well here.


Gungahlin Lakes

Gungahlin Lakes Golf Course is an 18-hole championship course characterised by its lakes, creeks and water carries. Whether it be the water, dogleg fairways or bunkers, each hole has its own unique challenge in getting to the large bent grass greens. The course layout provides an enjoyable yet testing round for all players, rewarding those that approach it strategically. And it provides a fitting challenge for the final round of our event!
