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?

Centenary Park ( Website)
Designed by golf professional Bill Clifford, work started on the present course in 1973 and in May 1974 the first nine holes were opened, with the second nine holes opened in October 1975.
Originally two old houses owned by the Frankston Council, were transported from their original site near Frankston Station, joined together and were the Pro-shop and Manager's residence at the course for more than 25 years. Older residents well remember Dot and Jim Spencer who managed the Pro-shop at the old course and then at Centenary park for more than two years, before Pat and Frank Doolan took over for the next 18 years. Since the mid 1980s, the City of Frankston has invested thousands on continual upgrading of the course and appointed a special sub-committee to recommend works.A ten year master plan in 1986 saw many improvements including a reticulation system, drainage works, dams, and upgrading and resewing of fairways.
