GET TO KNOW THE COURSE
THE ABC OF TUNNEL RIDGE RANCH
Tunnel Ridge Ranch has hosted the Sunshine Coast Open since 2018 - it's a fantastic place with a course that we know you'll love playing.
Accomodation is available on site. Aside from the week that it transforms into a Disc Golf paradise TRR is a school camp - with cabins, dorm rooms, and permanent tents. They also have an excellent camp kitchen which always makes sure that players are full and happy heading out onto the course.
It's a beautiful place, perched on the shore of Ewen Maddock Dam and surrounded by natural bushland. If your legs are up for it after your round there's great hikes and mountainbike trails at your door, and if you're looking for something more relaxing the beach is but a 15 minute drive away.
The course itself though... competitive is a good word for it. With a mixture of long open fields, densely wooded areas, and a signature peninsular reaching into the dam it will test every part of your game. The big drivers have a chance to shine, the great scramblers get a chance to shine, and you'll want to putt with confidence and authority because the more hilly holes will dish out roll-aways to timid putters. Anyone at the pointy end of the field for the last round will have shown ability in all facets of the game.
The final course layout is still being worked on but to give you an idea of what you're in for check out the map for last year's Sunshine Coast Open below.
GETTING TO THE COURSE
Tunnel Ridge Ranch is located at the southern end of the Sunshine Coast in Landsborough, about 15 minutes drive from the beaches of Caloundra.
For players travelling from afar it's half an hour's drive from Sunshine Coast airport, or roughly an hour's drive from Brisbane airport.
If flying into Brisbane there's also the option of catching the train from Brisbane airport to Landsborough and then a short trip on your rideshare app of choice to the venue.
If you're looking for accomodation beyond what the ranch can provide we'd recommend checking out the options in Caloundra - as a beachside town it's full of options for every budget, as well as all the surf, restaurants, and bars you could want
