Mirage Country Club:

Mirage Country Club Port Douglas has everything your body desires - give yourself the ultimate sporting experience or simply give yourself a relaxing break.

Situated in Port Douglas just under one hour's drive north of Cairns, Mirage Country Club is right by the many award winning attractions of the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas.

Practice your swing on the aquatic driving range, or volley away on one of 9 floodlit tennis courts (including 2 surfaced in Rebound Ace). Tone up in the gymnasium, unwind in the sauna or cool down in the 25 metre lap pool.

Mirage Country Club Port Douglas is also a golfer's paradise. Rated as one of the world's best resort courses, the 18 hole international standard championship golf course was designed by renowned golf architect Peter Thomson, and contains the usual combination of 6 par 3, 6 par 4 and 6 par 5 holes all within two quite different 9's with the bordering Coral Sea and the panoramic mountain backdrop providing the only distractions to a memorable round.

The golf course also has practice putting green and bunkers, and professional golf instructors, and any equipment that you need is available for sale or hire from the Pro Shop.

The Links
Crafted by the internationally acclaimed Thomson, Wolveridge & Perrett, Architects, this championship "links" course provides a special challenge for golfers of all levels. A central rainforest wetland, rich undulating fairways and spectacular mountain views combine to offer a golfing experience like no other.


The Links, Port Douglas has continued the renaissance of authentic "links" courses in Australia. Golf Course Architects, Thomson, Wolveridge & Perrett ("TWP") were specifically chosen for their understanding and appreciation of traditional links architecture.

In Australia TWP have been responsible for some of the country's best resort courses including Hope Island (No.4) and Twin Waters (No. 9).

In the evocative style of a "Grand Old Queenslander", The Links Clubhouse serves as a focal point for The Links Community with pro shop, restaurant and bar facilities.

The Links is managed by Club Corporation of America, the World's largest golf course owner and operator. Founded in 1957 in Dallas, Texas, ClubCorp have grown to operate more than 230 premier golf courses in some 14 countries worldwide.
