Really enjoyed playing several rounds here recently.  Plenty of length in the course of the back tees and greens were in good nick which is most important.  Honest test for all golfers.  (More kangaroos than you will see on any other golf course !)

I played Lithgow last week and sadly the course has not improved since I last played. The fairways are patchy, the rough looks like it rarely gets touched, the greens were about 5mm long and you may as well have been putting on plush carpet. The few bunkers on the course were rock hard and I can't believe that they are still persisting with an out of bounds on the edge of the fairway on the 8th. In some places it is 30 meters from the fence. The most ridiculous out of bounds I have ever seen!!! Probably the worst course between Penrith in the east and Orange in the west. I would rate the course at the moment half a star if iseek golf would allow.

was pleasantly surprised by Lithgow GC. Conditions not bad, a little overgrown in places and in need of a mow. Greens pretty good. Course didn't handle water well. It is an attractive course that plays through open woodland. Has nice views of sorrounds. Fairways a little patchy and surface not amazing but for a reasonably small town this course is not bad. Some good challenging holes that often require length and accuracy off tee for a second shot. Worth a visit but better courses up the mountains eg Wentworth Falls, Blackheath and Katoomba.

I played this course in November Last year and although I said I wasn't impressed I did say I would play the course again. Well I did yesterday and twice is enough for me. Nothing has changed and the fairways are still boggy and the course needs major drainage work. The grass on the fairways was very short and bare in many places. The greens were too long and bumpy. I would rather play on artificial turf! I feel extremely lucky to be a member of a course such as Katoomba that is so well maintained.

Sticking to the course review without personal jibes at the prostaffmeasures 5987m Par 72 with five par 3s ranging from 124-165m, eight par 4s ranging from 292-400m and five par 5s ranging from 466-501m. The course has patches of couch grass with mostly kikuyu fairways which are bare and thinly covered on most holes. The bent grass greens are medium sized and play a little slow. The kikuyu teebeds are worn out with many dirt patches. The short-to-medium sized tree-lined parkland style layout has mostly wide fairways and the course has 5 bunkers all on the front nine. As mentioned 3 out of the 5 par 3s play downhill to the greens, whilst the par 4s are the most challenging aspect of the course and the par 5s are a good length. Minor correction: the 124m 2nd (index 16) has white stakes (GUR) in front of the bunkerless green not OOB as mentioned earlier there used to be a bunker here, but is now out of play and filled with water from all the rains. Like others, I am not a fan of the 389m blind dogleg right 8th (index 3) with internal OOB over the dam on the left (which is 200m from the tee) and another rather unreasonable internal OOB on the dogleg corner rough how do you know if you've reached the fairway from over the dogleg corner off the tee...beats me...there is private homes on the dogleg corner so insurance costs where probably a factor rather than a good golf hole here! Highlights here include: the 324m straight 3rd (index 11) with OOB railway line left with 2 bunkers guarding the front of the green, the 129m 9th (index 15) with 2 bunkers left to a long narrow green, the 374m slightly uphill but straight 14th (index 1) has slight fairway slope to the left through a narrower driving area to a bunkerless green and the 373m slightly downhill 16th (index 5) with a small dam on the dogleg left corner with the OOB Oakley Forest Road far left to another bunkerless green. The short 292m 17th and the 162m 18th are rather weak finishing holes. The course provides no real challenges for the serious golfers with all greens except the 3rd, 5th and 9th unbunkered with wide fairways and minimal hazards in play. Lithgow is on the western edge of the sandstone country of the Blue Mountains with about 11500 people with an elevation of around 920m above sea level. The golf course is at an elevation of about 940-980m above sea level about 3.5 kilometres north of the city. The maximum temperature that day was 8 degrees with light drizzle and southerly winds gusting up to 35km/h, so it can get chilly in the winter months. Played here 12/6/2011 with $22 green fees for 18 holes or $17 green fees for 9 holes. There are better conditioned more challenging courses in Wentworth Falls and Blackheath less than 1 hour away.

played the "course" about 2 months ago i have put the word course in inverted comers as this is not a golf course more like a roughly mown paddock. the young 19 year old prefessional in the shop had every group running 25 mins late i should have taken this as a sign and hopped back into the car and gone to a real course the greens were as bumpy as a 15 year olds face going through pubity with pimples. fairways were no good as were the tee boxes. very displeased with my experince and wont be back
