An all-round improvement at Paradise Palms golf course has seen it rise 10 spots in the latest Australian rankings, but course director Des Shearer is still not satisfied.

Paradise Palms G.C 3The competitive streak in Shearer was in full view when news of his course's new ranking of 66 in The Australian Golf Digest was revealed yesterday. "That's a bit disappointing actually, I thought with the work we'd done this year it'd be higher than that," he said.

"We've improved the general course condition, more consistent greens, better fairways, bunkers and surrounds." Royal Melbourne's West course reclaimed top spot from Kingston Heath, while Sea Temple at Port Douglas came in at 91.

There were 11 new entrants in the top 100, but Shearer hoped a new irrigation system, yet to be fully installed, would help Paradise Palms push further up the rankings when they were next released in two years' time.

"People plan their holidays around this list, so it's important to be in it and we'll keep doing our best to crack that top 50," Shearer said.
