The 4 Competition Golf Courses

Sanctuary Cove The Pines 16th Ladbrokes Gold Coast World Masters Golf Championship Competition Course

Sanctuary Cove The Pines

Arnold Palmer Design

Carved through 101 hectares of established pine forest, the course features corridor approaches to several holes, with lakes guarding others. Fourteen of the holes are contoured around six man-made lakes. There is an abundance of wildlife including rare bird life and scores of native Australian kangaroos.

Palm Meadows Golf Course Competition Course for Ladbrokes World Masters Golf Competition Gold Coast Aerial View

Palm Meadows

Graham Marsh Design

Palm Meadows’ signature hole is the world famous 18th; it measures 523 metres from the championship tees. Players accept the challenge and decide how much of the right dogleg they want to cut off. American Golf Digest rated Palm Meadows 18th in the world’s top 500 golf holes. The layout of the course is also arguably one of the best on the Gold Coast.

Hope Island AVGU Golf Championship

Links Hope Island


Links Hope Island Golf Course is the centrepiece of Hope Island Resort. With its 5-Star facilities and consistent rankings as one of Australia’s top ten resort courses, we are pleased to welcome back Links Hope Island Golf Course as part of the Ladbrokes World Masters.


Arundel Hills

Described by Australian golfing great Norman von Nida as “perfect”.

From the moment you enter the sweeping paved approach and observe the tranquil lake bordered by manicured gardens, you realise Arundel Hills Country Club is very special. Within easy reach of both the Gold Coast and Brisbane, Arundel Hills Country Club is home to an 18 hole championship golf course renowned for its picturesque design.

The Competition

Entry is open to all male and female golfers over the age of 35 with an official handicap. All golfers play a 72 hole single stableford event while “A” grade golfers are eligible to compete for the best stroke/gross.


Age groups & handicap divisions

You are guaranteed to play with golfers your own age and standard.

35-55    A,B,C grade (max h’cap 30men; 40 ladies)

56-65    A,B,C grade (max h’cap 30men; 40 ladies)

66+       A,B,C grade (max h’cap 36men; 45 ladies)

Age and handicap divisions may be adjusted based on entries.

Handicap verification

In partners­­­hip with GOLFLink (Australia) and International Golf Associations the tournament committee will review the 6 month playing history of all entrants. The tournament committee reserves the right to amend player handicaps. 

The ‘slope handicap system’ will be utilised to calculate player handicaps for the Championship rounds. Under the slope system, the difficulty of the golf course and the tee blocks played from determine a player’s handicap prior to the start of each round.


Pace of play

For the enjoyment of all players, field sizes will be limited and experienced marshals will monitor pace of play. Tips to improve speed of play and the penalties for slow play will be provided to all players.
