Played here about a year ago and was very impressed with some of the holes, especially on the back nine. The first 5 holes on the back nine are fantastic, great mixture of doglegs and shot shaping requirements. I must say the 8th hole - par 4 of about 380m definitely shot rate harder than index 12 - I hit driver then 2i hybrid into a northerly and didnt get on! The course was a little flat on the front nine, fairly straight holes, but with thick kikuyu rough and fairways with no run. This nine isn't as challenging as the back and lacks contours. It is one of the reasons, being close to a river and floodplain that it quite often ends up submerged after long rain events. Not a course that holds up well in severe weather. Kembla Grange has reasonable greens and is the longest course in the Illawarra area, but sometimes doesnt feel like it. In saying that I had a tough time just to play to my handicap and feel that it in the area it makes the top 3, behind Port Kembla and The Links - Shell Cove. This course is a 3.5 star track for me and membership is going for about $600 per year. It's better than Wollongong, good if you want to bomb drives all day, lacks the character and elements of the other two better courses in the area.

I haven’t played here in about 2 years but used to be a member. The front nine can be bland and unimaginative till the wind gets up! It bears teeth then. The back nine can match anywhere. Since the new pro arrived 6 or 7 years ago the course has stepped up a notch, especially in the little details and the management of tee times. You don’t wait too much. Nice job Snapper!

A course of contrasting front & back 9’s. The front being relative flat, & well maintained. The back 9 is a lot tougher for the visitor, with several par 5’s requiring serious thought off the tee, Mullett Creek winds it’s way through the undulating back 9.

Front nine, short, flat and reasonably boring. Back nine, undulating, testing greens – great!

Front nine requires you to just keep it on the fairway and you will score well. Back nine is entirely different (except the par 3 10th). You almost feel like your on a different course. Undulating fairways, testing par 4s and the par 5s make you think before you grab the driver off the tee.

Will be back for more. Friendly staff, easy to get on and good value. Tip – keep your ball below the hole on the par 5 16th green. I was putting for birdie from the top of the green and the result wasn’t pretty.

Measured 6270m Par 72 (from the back plates) with four Par 3s ranging from 145-175m, 10 Par 4s ranging from 330-400m and 4 Par 5s ranging from 440-530m. The greens were cored so they were very slow. The front nine greens were substantially smaller and flatter than the back nine greens, but the back nine also had more greens with tiers and dips. Bunkers protect the greens of most holes, but no fairway bunkers on the longer holes. The teebeds were a little disappointing with some not very flat lies, while the fairways were trimmed close and was quite lush in places.

The course has two nines that are similar in length, but differ in challenge and quality quite markedly. The front nine begins with a par 5 dogleg right, and has 2 interesting par 3s worthy of mention. The 174m 4th has Mullet Creek along the left with large bunker on the right. While the 154m 7th has an elevate tee on an island to a green with a leftside bunker. The rest of the holes are fairly flat and boring.

The back nine is the reason why Iíll come back here. Holes are more demanding, options off the tee, lay-up options on par 5s, larger tiered greens and undulating fairways, interesting sand traps, creeks and OOB cut close to fairways and some greens just add to the challenge. The signature 146m 18th is a hole that tests your club selection with the cooling waters of Mullet Creek between you and the green. Par 5s are worth respect, but keep it on the high side, and you are in business. Par 4s are quite challenging on length, but are within reign if accurate off the tee. Generally there were narrower fairways on the back nine compared to front nine, which adds to the course flair.

Played here 23/4/06 with good value for green fees $25 and $30 for a cart. Great little clubhouse with extremely friendly members, proshop and bar staff. Our club has reciprocal rights so we played here for free, but it is definitely a course/club I recommend if in the Illawarra/Wollongong region. Good facilities include function room, driving bays, chipping green and short range for mid to low irons.

A very nice course where a bit of thought needs to go into yourshotmaking especially on the back 9 where on some holes laying up is the smarter option rather than blazing away with a wood, There is enough trees, water, bunkers & thick rough to keep anyone honest.
