Golf Australia Express : GA Express 253
The land chosen for the course – a short pitch from Four-Mile Beach – was ideally suited to golf, Wolveridge recalled a short time after the course opened. “During the excavation, we found constant evidence of ancient coral reef life, which encouraged me to create an authentic links,” Wolveridge said. “We restored the land to small dunes and an open landscape more akin to Scotland than the tropics.” “Cooled by an ever-present sea breeze, the seasonal winds offer the traditional challenge of a links course.” Climate aside, Wolveridge, and design partners Thomson and Ross Perrett did a brilliant job in developing a genuine links experience in the tropics, which would certainly amaze MacKenzie. The greens are firm and there is always at least a hint of breeze. In addition, the course is so beautifully manicured that you can roll a variety of chips onto Sea Reef’s greens without ever reaching for a lob wedge. The greens at Sea Reef are its standout attribute.
