The Palms course at Sanctuary Cove was originally designed by Fred Bolton, an American golf course designer who initially worked for Jack Nicklaus. While working for Nicklaus, Bolton was sent to oversee the construction of the re-design of The Australian Golf Club in Sydney. Bolton stayed in Australia after the project was completed, and began his own independent design business, designing several well-nown Gold Coast courses in the process. He married an Australian and settled on Queensland's Gold Coast.
