Boorowa measures 2239m Par 32 with four par 3s ranging from 121-190m and five par 4s ranging from 277-372m. Course has natural grass fairways with patches of kikuyu grass. The tee grounds are tiny with kikuyu grass no tee mounds. The Santa Ana couch grass greens are tiny mostly 5m long x 5m wide and are very slow. There are no par 5s or bunkers on the course. There is a natural creek which runs through the course and town. Course is not very well maintained with a non-qualified greenskeeper volunteering his time to maintain the course and cuts the grass twice a week Tuesdays and Fridays. 1st-367m straight hole with OOB Market Street far right with the tiny green visible from the tee. 2nd-277m straight hole with the natural creek cutting across the fairway about 40m short of the bunkerless green. The tiny green also has the creek meandering 2m left from the green. 3rd-164m with a teeshot over the creek 4th-121m with another teeshot over the creek 5th-321m walk up along the bowling greens to the 5th tee with Market Street behind you. From the tee you can just see the green over the gully as the hole is straight. The oval is OOB along the left. 6th-143m slightly downhill teeshot with the creek 2m over the back edge of the tiny green. 7th-284m the flag is not visible from the tee on this hole with a teeshot over the creek again and over the crest to the green in a gully. 8th-190m is probably the best hole on the course. Teeshot is from the tree which is close to the 3rd tee over the grassed gully/creek to a 15m long x 8m wide 2-tier front-sloping green with the OOB fence over the back edge of the green. By far the most the challenging hole and the largest green on the course. 9th-372m good finishing hole with the flag not visible from the tee with a wide fairway which is shared with the 1st fairway. The hole bends gently to the right to a slightly blind green which is nestled between the 3rd green and the 4th tee. There are no flags on the course as they use the end of red broom sticks to denote the hole. The short red broom sticks make it difficult to see the green but all holes (apart from the 7th and 9th) are straight. No sign post anywhere on the course and the scorecard in the honesty box at the 1st still reflect the old course distance layout where it used to be black soils. So it is a little difficult to negotiate for the first time around here. Overall, the course conditioning is relatively poor with tiny bumpy and slow couch grass greens and patchy fairways with some bare dirt lies. The closing 3 holes are reasonably challenging but apart from this the course is quite short given its location bounded by the town's central streets. There is no room to expand here. The South West slopes town of Blayney has around 1150 people and is approximately 500m above sea level and is located in the centre of the town. Played here 1st April 2012 with $10 green fees. Closest full-length 18 hole course would be Harden, Young or Yass. Compared to other 9-hole grass green courses in the region, Boorowa is not as well conditioned and challenging as Crookwell, but probably similar to Tully Park and Goolabri Country Resort. Not too bad given at the beginning of 2010 the course replaced their black soil scrapes with 9 Santa Ana couch grass greens. There are no fairway watering and the course uses town water. Friendly members and the club also has 2 bowling greens.
