Golf Education Centre
They'd all love to be able to pick up a club and automatically be able to play like Greg Norman in his heyday, but for most of us practice - and a lot of it - makes perfect. Thankfully, Palmer Coolum Resort's golf course is complemented with an extensive range of practice facilities available at the Golf Education Centre.
Offering the latest in golf tuition facilities, including a full swing analysis program, this is the perfect place to hone your game. Boasting an on-site computerised ball dispenser, putting green and a practice chipping green that offers a variety of shots with an adjoining practice bunker, the Golf Education Centre is also home to their 250 metre flood-lit driving range.
So even when the day is over you can still work on perfecting that all-important swing.
