Australia’s only championship island golf course is just five minutes away on Dent Island, Hamilton Island’s neighbour in the Whitsunday Islands.
Guarding the waters off central Queensland, Dent Island’s lighthouse has been a beacon for sailors since the 1870s. For many years Dent Island was visited only by grazing cattle and fishermen. Nowadays the island is not only a magnet for golfers, it’s ideally located for Dent Island day trips from Hamilton Island.
Paddle a kayak over Dent Island’s coral reefs, snorkel with schools of tropical fish or hire a dingy and while away the day on a fishing expedition.
Hamilton Island Golf Club
Dent Island’s par 71 championship course was designed by champion golfer Peter Thomson, and features two distinctly different nine-hole circuits. Encircled by panoramic vistas of blue Coral Sea and shimmering Whitsunday Islands, the course is designed to challenge professionals and satisfy resort golfers.
If you’re here on a golfing holiday, Dent Island accommodation packages include your choice of lodging on Hamilton Island and a soothing massage to complete your round of golf.
Whether you’re on Dent Island holidays to play golf or relax, the Clubhouse restaurant invites you to sit back and drink in views over Dent Island to Passage Peak. Make a booking for lunch to dine on seasonal Modern Australian cuisine, or unwind with a drink in the Clubhouse bar.
Dent Island is Hamilton Island’s western neighbour – in fact it’s so close it’s often called Hamilton West!
Dent Island is five minutes by ferry or helicopter from Hamilton Island, or you can hire a dinghy from Hamilton Island’s marina to cast a line on a fishing and snorkelling day trip.
