Palm Meadows Golf Course
Description Designed by leading Australian golfer Graham Marsh, Palm Meadows was one of the first championship courses on the Gold Coast. Palm Meadows emerged from 350 hectares of marshland, just a few kilometres west of Surfers Paradise. A par 72 measuring 6319 metres off the championship tees with water coming into play on 14 of the holes, along with 82 sand bunkers. There are eleven kilometres of cart paths bordering all fairways making Palm Meadows an all weather golf course. The first hole is regarded by many as one of the worlds most challenging opening holes. With water running the entire length of the hole on the left and the world famous 'Bamboo Curtain' on the right, golfers must have their 'A Game' from the first shot of the day. The signature hole at Palm Meadows is the world famous 18th hole. Measuring 523 metres from the championship tees, the player has the opportunity to chance their arm as to how much of the dogleg right they want to cut off. Curtis Strange, well aware of his capabilities during the playoff with Roger Davis for the 1990 Palm Meadows Cup, took the long way home. Davis however did not, and it goes to say Davis eagled the hole and took home first place, how much do you dare?

Cabramatta Golf Club ( Website)
The original Land Grant of 200 acres was given to Robert Cummings in 1805.
From this area in 1927 Arthur Bull purchased 157 acres and then in 1939 W. Hansford bought 98 acres and constructed a golf course and clubhouse which was leased to the Cabramatta County Golf Club. The club was affiliated with the Metropolitan Golf Association and Sydney Sub District Golf Association. The original course was a par 66 on approximately 78 acres with 20 acres of undeveloped land south at the old 3rd green. A boundary fence ran behind the 3rd green across to the Cabramatta Creek. During 1946/47 discussions took place with the owners regarding purchasing the property and at the meeting held at the Granville Town Hall it was decided to buy the land at a cost of 16,000 pounds, financed by a loan from the bank of N.S.W and an equal investment by Member Debenture Holders. On 4th March 1947, Cabramatta Golf Club Ltd was formed and incorporated under the companies Act. The property was transferred on the 24th March 1947.
