Gunnedah’s par 70 course sits on the southern edge of town and boasts a flat up and back layout with irrigated fairways lined by gums and pines. There are a few bunkers out there and a couple of water hazards. The par 5 4th has a dam to carry off the tee and the par 4 8th has water right of the fairway. The 8th is the beginning of three consecutive par 4’s that average 400m and not surprisingly are the toughest holes on the course. The greens at Gunnedah are superb surfaces and the lush surrounds are great to chip off and quite a contrast to the dry, red clay base that pops up around the course. Gunnedah is certainly one of the better courses in the North-West Slopes and is probably second only to Tamworth an hour up the road.
played today 16/11/08 wasnt to bad, had a good round shot 65.
straight up and back holes,will say the greens where slow. The
cost was ten dollars which was very good. will be back for
Measuring 5941m Par 70 course, with 12 Par 4s ranging from
340-410m, 2 short Par 5s ranging from 435-465m and four Par 3s
ranging from 120-165m. Holes are not challenging for the keen
golfers, but has a flat layout, with many straight up-and-back
holes. Has more dogleg to the left than rightside, and a generous
country-style landing area off the tee! The water on the course
is used for retention/irrigation uses, with no hole having a
decent clearance over water.
Greens are in very good condition for country course standards,
making putts difficult to read with break and speed to judge
ñ unlike many greens Iíve frequented recently in the NE
region. Fairways are non-existent to due dry conditions, with red
dirt common sight. Teebeds are not too bad, with a few relatively
flat lies around. No bunkers that comes into play, apart from the
160m Par 3 6th.
Cost is reasonable as well, $17.50 for 18 holes on a weekday
(played here 13/4/06) is not bad value. Electric carts are
$27.50. Course could do with some water holes ñ that come
INTO play off the tees or approach to the greens - just to
increase the challenge and scenery.
