Est. 1992

The Capricorn Resort Yeppoon: RESORT and GOLF COURSES CLOSED IN 2016, with no clear plan to re-open. Check current status before planning a visit.

[Original Where2Golf description]: The Mercure (formerly Rydges) Capricorn Resort Yeppoon is home to two championship golf courses: the original "Resort" layout, which was followed 6 years later in 1992 by the longer "Championship" course. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course.

The Championship course is a well-rated and always popular layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.
