The back and right side of green falls away steeply. That’s because the golf course is always well maintained and conducive to good golf. “ We have members who have been here for over 30 years and say the course is as good as it’s ever been,” said the club’s general manager Allan Harris. one of the reasons why Noosa Golf Club’s picturesque championship course is popular with locals and visitors alike is because it’s an easy walking and generally forgiving layout.
