Yeppoon Golf Club
Our club is located on the magnificent Capricorn Coast, just above the Tropic of Capricorn, at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. Winter traditionally occurs for a few days in mid-June, while our summers are tempered by the prevailing cooling south-easterly sea breezes. Our course is home to mobs of friendly grey kangaroos and a myriad of native fauna and flora that benefit from the entire property being classified as Land for Wildlife under Greening Australia’s national environmental initiative. A modern, fully equipped clubhouse sits centrally at the highest part of the course, and is available year-round for weddings, parties and functions. Visitors are welcome to participate in competitions or social golf – bookings are essential. The Course The 18 hole course is not particularly long at 5731m off the blue tees (5166m for the ladies) but it is relatively tight, being contained within an area less than 40 hectares and out-of-bounds threatening on 8 holes. Water is potentially in play on five holes, and there are a total of 6 strategically placed fairway bunkers along with 28 green-side bunkers. The greens are generally undulating with some deceptive slopes that demand close attention to the usual combination of pace and line. Yeppoon is a par 72 for the ladies with the standard fare of four par 3’s and four par 5’s while the 432m fifth hole is a par 4 for the men, making it a par 71 track for them. Former Australian Junior Champion Boyd Watts holds the course record of 64, having secured that feat in the first round of the Club Championships in 2007.
