The Links at Port Douglas is a gorgeous links style course in the tropics. Michael Wolveridge of Thomson Wolveridge fame is the man responsible for this most interesting design.

The course opened for play in 2001, and is routed around and through some tropical rainforest only a few iron shots from the famous four-mile beach at Port Douglas.

It is a small site, and the course is tight – all the more credit to Wolveridge for coming up with such a fascinating Palmer Sea Reef Golf Course - Photo by reviewer layout. It is a course that I can play over and over – perhaps partly due to the wonderful climate.

In a different setting this would be a bona fide links course as each of the holes has a classic look and feel – from the bunkering to the shaping of the greens – all of which is reminiscent of the great links of the UK.

The bunkering is both strategic and photogenic, and the course flows with a mix of long par 4's (holes 1, 4, 14, 17), some short thinking man's par 4's (2, 9, 10, 13, 18), a variety of heavily bunkered par 5's, and some striking par 3's.

There is never a dull moment!
