The Sanctuary Cove 4-Ball is a team’s event format combining best ball, ambrose and aggregate competitions in handicap divisions. Single entrants will be paired into a team.
It is easy to see why it is so easy to make new friends with everyone staying at the 5-star Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort. You’ll find other participants lazing about in the lobby, having breakfast, catching up for a drink or having dinner.
Social outings are quickly planned around willing participants. Singles are paired up for golf and quickly feel included in the Go Golfing community. The 4Ball Challenge is a wonderful opportunity for golfers to do what they love – golf – and to get together for some good times.
To add to the fun, players will be put together into bigger teams. The welcome dinner sets the tone for an entertaining week as everyone comes dressed in their team colour. On the final night, each team puts together an act – a theme song, poem or jokes – based on team colours. This makes for a memorable evening filled with laughter.
Thank you Go Golfing for a highly successful and a thoroughly enjoyable event. From our perspective it was professionally run, outstanding fun and excellent golf was facilitated from a high quality club. Services from the Intercontinental Hotel were excellent and made for a most relaxing holiday. The staff matched the professional approach on display from the Go Golfing crew.

I heard about Go Golfing’s 4Ball Challenge through friends so I decided to see what all the fuss was about, and boy was I glad I did. Go Golfing ensured that everything was looked after right down to the smallest detail. The whole week was marvellous and I would recommend Go Golfing’s unique 4Ball format to all club golfers.
Sanctuary Cove is a destination in itself. You’ll feel right at home the moment you arrive. Everything is at your fingertips – the accommodation, the competition golf, the social events. Here, everyone drives golf carts to get around and share a passion for golf.
With the Marine Village – just a 5-minute walk away – it is a true village lifestyle. You are spoilt for choice with an abundance of casual and fine dining restaurants, cafes, and boutiques. Ah! this is living!

As Australia’s only Arnold Palmer signature course, The Pines is recognised as one of Australia’s best and most challenging courses. 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. An abundance of wildlife features on The Pines including rare bird life and scores of native Australian kangaroos.
The Palms Golf Course has recently undergone an $8.8 million reconstruction and was redesigned by renowned golf course architect Ross Watson. After its reopening in April 2011, The Palms is considered a championship course rivalling some of the best golf courses in Australia. It has a total length of 5904 metres off the championship tees, and has numerous water features and hazards. Tee placements have been designed to suit a variety of playing conditions and a diverse range of players. Nestled within century old Cabbage Palms, The Palms Golf Course is a return to the traditions of the game, with distinctive holes, deep greenside bunkers and boldly contoured greens requiring creative shot making.
