Kooralbyn Golf Course
Now after eight years in the wilderness during the global financial crisis, Peter Huang, founder of the Yong Real Estate group, purchased and re-opened the golf course and the resort in 2016. Course Superintendent Jeremy Parry, Designer Marcus Lane (Atlas Golf) and Golf Course Shaper Lindsey Richter set about the redesign and rebuild of all greens. The bunkers have been reshaped and refurbished with pure white sand and a new irrigation system has been installed. After the multi-million dollar makeover, the course is set to impress the golfing world once again.
Kooralbyn is the Aboriginal name of ‘copperhead’. Famous for its Copperhead Challenge, the inland championship course with contrasting nines is just a short drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The front nine winds through natural valleys and watercourses, whilst the back nine flirts with 10 hectares of lakes in the valley basin. The wildlife is abundant, with hundreds of kangaroos feeding on a daily basis.
Golf Course Info
The 18-hole championship golf course at Kooralbyn Valley opened for play in October 1979 and in two years
was chosen to host the 1981 Queensland Open – a fitting tribute to
its superb layout. The first golf resort built in Australia with Greg
Norman as its tour professional at the time. It is now the golfing
holiday destination for tens of thousands of keen golfers every year
from Australia and overseas to thoroughly enjoy the challenge of the
course like no others.
