Golf Australia Magazine Ranks Resort Course No. 1 in Australia

Brisbane, Australia - Troon Golf Asia-Pacific received the best Christmas present it could have hoped for when the Glades Golf Club on Queensland’s Gold Coast was voted the No. 1 Resort Course in Australia by Golf Australia magazine.

The voting panel include the who’s who of Australian golf, Tom Ramsey, Nigel Wall, Brendan James, Mike Clayton, Craig Parry and Jack Newton to name a few.

Every two years the panel votes for Australia’s 25 best courses (all categories) and the Glades Golf Club debuted at No. 14 making it not only Australia’s No. 1 Resort Course, but Queensland’s No. 1 Course. The Glades now holds its place in Australian golfing history alongside such icons as Royal Melbourne, Kingston Heath, Metropolitan, New South Wales, Royal Sydney and The Australian.

Troon Golf’s commitment to agronomy was reinforced with such comments from the panel as “Conditioning makes such a difference. The Glades is in excellent condition year-round and deserves the high ranking for this reason” and “Norman has created a memorable perfectly manicured layout that can now lay claim to be the No. 1 golf course in Queensland”.

Even more amazing is the fact that this accolade was announced one year and one week after the Glades opened its fairways to daily fee players.

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Troon Golf represents nearly 110 management and development contracts in 21 states and 10 countries. Troon Golf properties include venues such as The Westin Turnberry Resort, Ayrshire, Scotland; Troon North Golf Club, Scottsdale, Arizona; Cabo del Sol, Los Cabos, Mexico, Huntingdale Golf Club, Melbourne, Australia and The Montgomerie at Emirates Hills, Dubai, UAE.
