No reviews for a while on this course so here goes. Now a 9 hole course. Apparently used to have more holes. Measures 2402m for the front 9. Some different tee boxes for the second nine. Monday afternoon and I was the only person on the course the whole time. I can understand why. Rarely was there a flat lie. The first 2 holes are good but downhill after that. Literally as well, as you end up at the bottom of a hill and have the final holes to get back up. Unfit people should probably get a cart.
The greens were the only redeeming feature. Very lush and they were fast.
Some challenges there as some holes have out of bounds the length of them, a couple of water carries, and as mentioned before very few flat lies.
I got a $13 twilight deal (after 3pm). That is probably all the course is worth and I wouldn't want to be paying the usual rate.
As I was passing through the area on my own I didn't mind giving it a go. But if I had any golfing buddies with me we would have been playing one of the courses elsewhere in the area.
A nice 10 hole golf course that gives you the chance to really
focus on your golf without the distractions like other golf
courses. The course is laid out beautifully adapting the natural
wild life around the course. There’s a nice little club
with a fantastic restaurant with even more impressive food. On
the other side of the club there’s a bar, for a nice little
escape from that “hard working” day at golf. The
pro-shop, although small is very personal thanks to the friendly,
inviting local Pro, Dave. At the moment the course is getting a
makeover, being turned from a 10-hole, 18-tee golf course to an
18-hole golf course. The greens are very green thanks to the
recent rainfall along the mountains and the above exceptional
drainage. It’s a very relaxing golf course, a brilliant
escape from working life.
This is a crackerjack 9 holer that has very little traffic and
tests the ability to adjust to sloping lies and club selection
for elevated or lower green placement. Many rate the 2nd as the
best risk/reward hole on the central coast- a downhill narrow par
4, you want to play safe with a 3 wood but that leaves a very
long iron on a downhill lie to a green on the other side of a
pond. I often blow out on this deceptive course as I did today
OUCH. The course at current (late Jan 2008) is the best i have
ever seen it with good rainfall improving the fairways and
greens. There are plans for another 9 including at least one hole
that is currently being built with a synthetic green. She is the
most hilly course I have ever played on. No practice green, you
have to putt on the 9th. Plenty of room for practice irons
/drives. Great clubhouse with big views, good food and a good
The course at Mangrove mountain I found to be a very nice little
course. All of the holes are relativly straight foward to play,
only the slope of the ground to contend with. A very hilly
course, so the legs get a good work out walking from hole to
hole. The greens are well maintained and the scenery is great.
The only thing I found difficult with the course was when you
play the back nine (front 9 a second time), some of the tee off
points were a little confusing, but all in all an enjoyable
course which I hope to play again in the naar future.
I played here and found a great. quiet little course. I felt like
i was the only one on the course. (I may have been at some times)
A nice test but not too tricky, only about four bunkers
Membership is cheap and this is a great place to learn (although
I'm still to get over the water on the second hole). This
course gives you a great workout - walking up the hill to the
eighth hole is the killer. After finishing up make sure you go to
the clubhouse and order some food. Burgers are only $6 and the
chips are to die for.
Whilst driving from Newcastle to Wisemans Ferry (via the Peats
Ridge exit from the F3) for a long weekend, I passed this course
and thought, that looks interesting. Stopped in for a round on
the way back home and was most surprised with what I found.
The course isn't located near any major town or population
centre and adjoins the localities ex-services club. It feels as
though it is in pretty much the middle of nowhere, but is in fact
only an hour or so from Sydney.
The course is a nine hole (18 tee) layout that is representative
of most Australian country town courses. It is well wooded on
every hole, with a selection of dams, bunkers and natural bush
hazards to keep all levels of player honest. The fairways and
greens were in excellent nick. It is built aorund a number of
hills, valleys and associated slopes so theres plenty of
vigourous walking to do, but to my mind, it only added to the
At one point (the 4th tee I think) I couldn't see or hear any
other golfers, traffic or other sort of man-made noise. It was
just me, about four or five different fairways, a lot of natural
eucalypt bushland and the local resident wildlife. One of those
moments where the 'I know why I love this game' thoughts
$15 for the round; hardly anyone else out on the course (a public
holiday Monday) and a spectacular setting. What more could you
The toughest golf course on the central coast. You will never
have an even Lie, the ball will always be either above or below
your feet. Although still is a great course to play, and it's
cheap. Like the previous reviews I have got to comment on the
walk up hill to the eigth hole. A must play golf course.
