Where2Golf says: 

Palmer Sea Reef (formerly known as Sea Temple Resort & Spa) is home to a generally well-regarded golf course, which includes several attractive holes and features. This tree-lined and open parkland layout, which on several stretches resembles an inland links course, will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges.

Measuring 6135 metres the course boasts wide undulating fairways, 89 bunkers and large greens with well-placed swales and mounds to test your putting skills. Worth visiting if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play facility, you can rise from your bed in the morning and head straight for the first tee.
