 "My advice for the first time visitor to this quite remarkable golf course is to take a very deep breath, hold it in, and be prepared to have the breath literally taken our of you. If there was a location that epitomizes the term ‘breathtaking’ it is Pinnacle Point."
Larry Gould

Club Overview

Signature Holes

Hole #3 - 429 meter par 4

Most golfers agree that Par 3 Hole 7 at Pinnacle Point is one of their all-time favourite holes. The dramatic scene looking down from the tees to this island green perched on top of a cliff is awe-inspiring. In winter the Southern Right Whales are regularly seen below this green.

Hole #18 - 463 meter par 5

The 18th at Pinnacle Point is finishing hole that’s difficult to forget. The hole plays along the cliffs of Eden Bay. The features of this hole are the 300 metres of white bunker sand that line the left of the hole, and the aggressive slopes from right to left all the way down this hole. This hole was designed to offer the golfer options.
