Inverell’s par 70 course is split in half by Bundarra Rd and sits about five kilometers south of town. The course is undulating in parts with a mixture of pines and gums lining the fairways, bunkers dotted throughout, impeccable greens and lush surrounds. The front nine plays on the clubhouse side of the road and features some interesting holes like the 343m par 4 1st with the most elevated green on the course particularly if you drive the ball to the bottom of the hill; the short par 4 8th with trees to avoid and an elevated, narrow green awaiting your approach and the 213m par 3 9th which can be a tough finish to the front if the wind isn’t in your favour. Across the road, the back nine is a little flatter and opens up with a monstrous par 5 measuring 546m with thick trees and OOB down the right. Another notable hole is the 388m par 4 14th with a narrow stream and large gum tree coming into play about 100m from the putting surface. The best play for longer hitters is to lay back a bit with a 3 wood or long iron to give yourself plenty of space back from the tree and avoid rolling into the water hazard. The overall presentation is great for a rural course with great surfaces, an interesting layout and only needing a bit of rain in the summer months to bring the kikuyu fairways to life! Certainly worth a stop for golfing enthusiasts visiting the scenic northern section of the state’s New England region. $24 for 18 holes.
Located about 6km south of town, Inverell GC measures 5863m Par
70 with 10 Par 4s ranging from 275-420m, 5 Par 3s ranging from
155-215m and 3 Par 5s ranging from 470-545m. Course is in poor
condition with patchy bent grass greens with more dead cover than
green cover, thin, brown fairways, but the teebeds are probably
the best part of the course. Guy in the proshop reckons that the
greens are looking better than before ñ hate to see what it
looked like before, if it plays slow and bumpy now.
Not many challenges out there, with wide fairways and a few
bunkers protecting most greens. The front nine is hilly and
shorter than the back nine. No water hazards on the front nine,
and the 6th hole crossing the 1st fairway. A strange layout. The
back nine crosses the road via tunnel and is somewhat more
challenging with water hazards (although dry, still needs some
thought to put ball to green). It is much longer and flatter than
the front nine, with doglegs and some lay-up options on the 14th
Played here 12/4/06 and paid $22 visitor/social green fees 7 days
