A vast improvement over the previous course. RQ is now in the upper echelon of Australian golf courses and in my view is clearly the best course in Queensland. Clayton's greens are challenging and I can understand why some have expressed reservations, but there's a lot of fun to be had on some of the more expressive greens in Australia. No weak holes and terrific use of the previous corridors. An excellent design on one of the flattest sites you'll find. 17 is in some ways a twin of the short 7th at Barnbougle Dunes - miss it at your peril. I'd be very happy to play RQ every week. A drink on the balcony watching the storms roll in late in the day is a perfect way to finish your day at a wonderful golf course and a great club.
