Designed by Karl Litten, Capricorn Resort Championship Course opened in 1992 and is carved out of melaleuca swamps and bushland.
Karl Litten is rated as one of the top ten designers in the world. He considers the Capricorn Resort Yeppoon Championship Course a gem, “It really has to be one of the top 5 world class courses I have ever designed and I have now designed more than 100 over a period of about 25 years”.
The first 9 is played through melaleuca bushland with plenty of nature walks for the wayward shot. The back 9 is the watery 9, built over, around and along all shapes and sizes of water hazards.
Par at Capricorn is 72 over a distance of 7,154 yards from the blue tees. Four of the holes are par 5, with the 15th hole boasting no less than 15 sand traps over a distance of 519 yards as it curves around a water course.
