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.

Interesting course, although a little flat & boring on the front nine. It use to have a great set of par 3's, but the 4th was shortened & wrecked. The 18th is a good closing par 3, if you like that sort of thing.

The 11th is a good par 4 doglegging left around a creek. The 12th is similar, but shorter. Both good holes.

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.
