Designed by Peter Toogood, the course features nine greens, eighteen tees, gently undulating fairways, two lakes, and numerous bunkers, providing a unique golfing experience. The golf course, part of the Seven Mile Beach recreation area, is accessible from Gruber Avenue at the airport terminal end.
