Noosa Par 3:
GOLFING and Noosa go hand-in-hand, with a range of lush and testing golf courses on offer.
The only thing that usually gets in the way of shooting birdies is watching lazy kangaroos grazing on the fairways or doing a bit of koala spotting in the trees.
Nestled on the southern entrance to Noosa’s premier hinterland town, this course offers a relaxed feel for a hit of golf to complete a holiday experience or social, corporate or charity golf day.
The open-plan clubhouse, with views over the 1st fairway and 18th green, is an ideal place to unwind. Call 5447 6258.
