This course is definitely underrated at 2.5 stars. The greens and fairways and very good, and the layout is interesting enough. As this isn't a $100 a round course it has weaknesses such as the sand in bunkers and the odd blind shot (as the previous review stated). This said, if you're in and around Canberra and have enjoyed Federal, Gungahlin Lakes and Yowani, then you'll have a very enjoyable round here.

This is a difficult course to rate. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition and the layout is quite interesting, however if you haven't played it before there are too many blind shots and hazards that are unseen until too late. The greens were large and quick. They rolled superbly. The fairways were generous, however some had tight landing areas for the drive, and if you miss the fairway the rough is quite patchy and bare. The bunkering is reasonable and the variety of holes is good. At $55 per person (includes cart) it is expensive compared to other courses in the area, but is very good quality. You could probably walk it, but there are quite a few long distances between holes where you go through tunnels under roads to get to the next section of the course, so the use of a cart will shorten your round considerably. We played on a Thursday and had the course to ourselves, but even in a cart it took us nearly 3 1/2 hours to get around. The one major issue is that there is no drinking water on the course, or at least none we found, so if you do play here take enough to drink for the conditions. We came away with the feeling that something wasn't quite right, but couldn't figure out what, it just didn't grab us the way it should have.

Played GC yesterday, early start before heat and "social" groups started. Fairways were in great condition, as were the greens, true and receptive and you got what you could see. Staff at pro shop could not of been more helpful and friendly, as were all the gounds staff. My wife and i will be back.

I have played this course twice in the last 2 weeks. I went back the second time to see if I could justify why this course was ranked in the top 100 public courses in Australia. My verdict: How this course is ranked within the top 100 I do not know. The fairways are inconsistent, bare in places and generally very poor. The greens are in good condition, however you do not get rewarded for good shots. I played a wedge in from 110 metres, landed mid green pin high, bounce 6 foot high and went through the back. Much work needs to be done to this course, I will not be back. There are many better courses around the ACT area which are fair better value for money

Measures 6444m Par 72 (black tees) with four par 3s ranging from 138-181m, ten par 4s ranging from 337-408m and four par 5s ranging from 465-537m. Blue plates measure 6227m Par 72. The previous reviews do not accurately reflect the course conditioning at the moment which was great. The course has wide couch fairways with flat, lush couch teebeds and quick, smooth bent grass greens. The rough is lush and fairly punishing, though with its wide fairways, you deserve to be punished if wayward. The course has a resort links feel to it with minimal large trees and houses lining most fairways. The course has 32 bunkers. The 1st, 6th and 17th are the only bunkerless greens on the course. The back nine is more challenging than the front nine with blind teeshots, more doglegs, fairway crests to hit over and all of the par 4s over 375m! Highlights include, the 390m 4th (index 1) which plays uphill to a crest with a bunker guarding the green short right, the signature 138m 7th (index 8) with a long green with water along the right and bunker short left, the 408m 10th (index 6) with lateral water hazard from the tee to green which cuts across the fairway 30m from the green which is guarded by water on the right and 2 bunkers back right and short left, the 379m dogleg right 13th (index 2) which is uphill for the last 100m to the large elevated front-sloping green guarded by a bunker short left and the other signature hole 530m 14th (index 13) with its elevated tee to a slight double dogleg fairway with 2 bunkers and a long green guarded by a bunker short right. Played here 1 April 2011 and paid $34 green fees to walk the course and was finished in 3 hours. So I am not sure what others are talking about but I enjoyed this course and the walk. Great facilities with a large grass driving range and 3 spare holes! Located about 20 minutes north from Parliament House off the Barton Highway I recommend a round here.

This course is a true disappointment especially given its former stature. While the elements of a good course remain, it falls short in comparison to many other courses in the area which have weathered the drought and other conditions with far more ease and effectiveness. The routing of the course is quite good with a mix of strong par 3, 4s and 5s with a fair degree of variety in length and orientation. The course makes good use of the natural terain of the land, in particular the back 9. The elevated tee shot on the par 5 14th is a highlight. I say the routing is good however if not riding in a cart I'm sure many a person would disagree, and understandably so. The walk is long with some distance between the greeens and following tee box on most holes. The course also has a reputation, and one that I can attest to, for torturously slow rounds - 5+ hours in competition. The conditioning of the course at the moment cannot be considered anything other than poor, especially off the fairways where you are more than likely to draw a bare lie in the middle of various clumps of grass. The fairways themselves are not much better while the course seems completely unable to handle any amount of rain. Many of the fairways are bare and now muddy while several greens struggle to maintain consistent coverage. The greenskeeping staff is also particularly unpleasant and seem to focus more upon accosting their members and guests rather than improving the conditioning of the course. Gold Creek has a general feel of being run-down. Much of this can be attributed to the tightening of the purse strings of the private owners. Hopefully the course can be returned to its former glory and not fall to land subdivision for housing estates.
