I played this course last Saturday and loved it, although on hole fourteen we had to surrender to the torrential rain. The greens and fairways are in great nick and it's a credit to the one full time green keeper and volunteers. Whilst there are no water hazards or bunkers the significant dog legs, tough rough and significantly slopping fairways makes it a tough course where club selection is important. It is wiser to leave the driver in the bag on many tees and focus on placement instead of distance. I would also strongly suggest hiring a cart as the course is on the side of a hill running down to Lake Oberon. If you're on your own turn up about 10am on a Saturday and you'll get a game in the comp with some of the very friendly locals. I would have to say the course is the most scenically attractive courses on the Central Tablelands and I can't wait to return in the not too distant future.

I played Oberon Golf Club today with my son in a Saturday comp we Travelled from our club in Bathurst to do this and I am very pleased to say that this coarse is in fantastic condition as we have just left the winter season. It makes you choose you club selection wisely and we also found that we were welcomed by quite a few members and we found them to be most friendly and both me son and myself will play this coarse on a more regular time frame. WELL DONE OBERON GOLF CLUB AND STAFF PLUS MEMBERS AND GROUND STAFF. " WELL DONE "

Time for an updateOberon now measures 5582m Par 70 with four par 3s ranging from 140-177m, twelve par 4s ranging from 257-395m and two par 5s ranging from 455-468m. Course has winter rye grass fairways and teebeds with tree-lined gums in the rough. There are smooth and well-paced small-to-medium sized bent greens. There are no bunkers but Lake Oberon is a lateral water hazard along the 4th and 5th holes. Highlights include: the 361m downhill dogleg left 2nd (index 6) from an elevated tee which is one of the highest points on the course with views over the fairway and to the lake with steep grassy banks with long grass to avoid off the tee to a small but narrow green; the 331m slight bend left 4th (index 2) with the lake along the entire leftside to a 30m long 2-tier front-sloping green; the 340m slight dogleg left 6th (index 3) plays uphill with an elevated quick front-sloping medium-sized green above the fairway sits below the maintenance shed; the 159m 7th (index 12) to a 35m long 2-tier rear-sloping green; the 369m dogleg left 10th (index 4) with a blind teeshot over the fairway crest with OOB fence right to the dogleg to a small green; and the 468m double dogleg left then right 16th (index 9) which shares the same teebed as the 6th and also plays gently uphill to the first dogleg with a blind 2nd shot to the next dogleg corner which will leave you 100m out of the tiny green. The front nine is the most visually appealing and varied part of the course. I would also go as far as saying that it is more challenging than the back nine. The 2nd and 11th teebeds are the highest parts of the course with downhill teeshots to the fairways below. Overall the par 3s were quite varied in length and with good use of the elevation of some greens. Like most country layouts the majority of the par 4s are less than 340m in length which does not challenge the frequent golfers. Course could use some bunkers but uses some undulating fairways (especially at 14th which is the index 1 hole), some thick rye grass rough in amongst the tall gum trees and smallish greens all add to the challenge here. Course has a full-time greenskeeper and the club has received Council approval to use reclaimed water. There is no boating or swimming in Lake Oberon as it is used for the town's drinking water supply. Oberon is one of the highest towns in Australia and receives regular winter snowfalls. I have only played two golf courses higher than Oberon's: New England's Guyra and the Snowy Mountains Thredbo golf courses. Course access is from Ross Street (past the visitor centre) on the southern side of town at approximately 1080-1140m above sea level. There is a snow local rule "a ball coming to rest in snow may be lifted and dropped not nearer the hole without penalty" for those brave enough to play before or during a snow shower. Oberon is a Central Tablelands town of around 2500 people approximately 1100m above sea level and is 45km (or 30 minutes) south-east of Bathurst and about 1 hour west of Katoomba. Played here 9th March 2012 with $25 green fees, remembering on this website that 1 star indicates "basic golf facilities" and 5 stars denotes "golf at its absolute best", Oberon is not amongst the top Central Tablelands courses but is in reasonable condition but does not really offer too many challenges for the more accomplished golfers.

Excellent course in good condition. Makes you really think about your club selection with most holes playing up or down various slopes and hills. Great views of the Oberon dam at the bottom end of the course.A lot of tricky dog leg holes make it very interesting.

This course has no pretensions and is a fun basic country course best suited to beginners – par 68 at 5400 metres is a god introduction to golf. As I see it, the rating systemof 1 to 5 is meant to apply to all courses. On that basis, this course is a 1 or 2. I’‘ll give it a 1 because the two previous ratings of 4 are simply ridiculous.
