Indooroopilly Golf Club, known locally as "Indra", boasts two Ross Watson championship redesigns, both dating from 1985. The East course combines the Green and Blue nines, while the usually higher-rated West course comprises the Gold and Red nines. Occasionally, other combinations of the four nines are also used (see Did You Know section below).
The West course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Queensland. This tree-lined and open parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. The West course benefitted in 2006 from a major renovation, which included a significant and impressive amount of re-bunkering.
Sand plays a dominant role on the West's front-nine (Gold), with expansive bunker complexes on the par-5 3rd, par-4 6th and par-5 7th holes being the most visually intimidating across the entire rolling landscape of Indooroopilly. Water plays a significant role on the inward-nine (Red) as does the changing elevation.

Indooroopilly GC benefits from having four nine-hole loops of championship golf (green, blue, gold and red), which can be combined to create six different 18-hole combinations. Typically Indooroopilly has featured the East course (green-blue) and the West course (gold-red). But there's also the possibility to play the Long Pocket course (red-green), Captain's course (green-gold), President's course (red-blue) and River course (gold-blue).
Indooroopilly GC's original home was in St Lucia, just south of Brisbane. Here in 1926 they opened an 18-hole course, which is today's St Lucia Golf Links (a public course). In 1964, Indooroopilly added to their St Lucia course, with a second 18-hole layout a couple of kilometres further south at Long Pocket ... on the banks of a horseshoe bend in the Brisbane River. Based on exchanging the original St Lucia site for additional land at Long Pocket, the club developed their current 36-hole golf complex in 1976, and permanently moved away from their original St Lucia home.
