Golfing in Brisbane has been popular for over 120 years. The rugged coastlines and mountains of Australia make for some of the greatest natural courses in the world. Many have views of the ocean, or overlook valleys where grapes are growing in abundance to feed the Australian wine industry. Some of the older courses have some fabulously charming clubhouses that work wonderful for weddings, corporate events, or other social functions. There is a good mix of public, private, and semi private courses and the weather is golf friendly year round.
If you are in a hurry but just feel the need to get out there, you may want to check out some of the killer 9 hole courses in Brisbane. On the opposite end of things if you have a full day to dedicate to the sport perhaps you would rather get out of the city and into one of the courses surrounded by natural Australian bush. Whether you are taking a foursome out for a fun game of social golf, or would like to organise a corporate event with enough people to warrant a shotgun start at every hole. Whether you have a small group or a larger one Executive Coach Charter will get you there in style, tell us how many in your group and we will arrange minibus transfer to the golf course from hotels, airports, or the conference facility you may be using.

Carbrook Golf Club
If you want a golf course that screams “That’s Australia” then Carbrook is an absolute must. With sharks in the water hazards this golf course lives up the the Australian reputation that everything in Australia is more dangerous than the rest of the world. This course has a sense of humor for sure. It is owned and operated by the members and although a new fairly new club it has a very interesting history. It literally went from a “well mowed cow paddock” to winning the Queensland Metropolitan Golf Club of the Year Award the year after the course you play today was finished, 2006. An interesting added benefit that came from the flooding in the 90s when the course was under construction initially fish and sharks ended up in the lakes that formed and now members and their families can enjoy fishing days to get a break from golfing. Social golfers are catered to and encouraged to come and play the golf course built by golfers for golfers.
From one of the oldest courses in Brisbane to one of the most modern day examples of a homegrown course Brisbane has a lot to offer both the social golfer and the corporate golfer. Many of the courses are able to be golfed every day of the year rain or shine as their fairways have been raised to avoid flooding.
