Did you know?

Unusually, each flagstick at Royal Queensland carries not one but two flags. The top flag (yellow cross on a red background) is the international maritime signal flag for the letter "R". Directly underneath it, the plain yellow flag denotes "Q". | Many of the trees at Royal Queensland are very helpfully labelled, allowing you to get to recognise: jacaranda, banksia, coral trees, poinciana, ficus (fig); cypress, cottonwood, sirus, tulipwood, bottle trees, pongamia, hoop pine, kauri, mahogany, tea trees, leopard trees, brazilian tree ferns and many, many more. | Royal Queensland is one of eight golf clubs in Australia honoured by exercise of the Sovereign's royal prerogative. George V conferred the Royal title on the club in 1921. The eight Australian 'Royals' are (in order of gaining Royal status): Melbourne, Sydney, Queensland, Adelaide, Hobart, Fremantle, Canberra and Perth.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
