COURSE DETAILS

The Merewether Course is a well groomed tree lined course. Over recent times great effort has been made to reintroduce native trees and wildlife and benefits are starting to show. The first impression suggests an easy course with some very attackable holes. It doesn’t take long to realise that precision is well rewarded. Stray shots that don’t sink in dams are usually found, but the punishment can vary dramatically. There is a fully equipped pro-shop and clubhouse facilities.

Played here for the first time this week, playing off 16 handicap, really enjoyed it.  Impressed with the condition of the fairways.  Greens can be quite tight which rewards accuracy and there are quite a few bunkers, some greenside bunkers can't be seen from the approach which causes some grief when you get there.  Directional signage between holes could be improved, wasted some time trying to find the 9th and the 17th tees.  But overall an interesting course, used some clubs that I don't use on my home course and had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.  Bit of a jewel tucked away in Newcastle.  Pro shop staff helpful.

Played Merewether for the first time today and was immediately impressed. The Pro's were friendly and pointed out the ins and outs of the course. I though the course was a great test of golf and really required you to think your way around. There were some open holes where you could crunch driver and many other holes where a ripped 4 iron was the safer choice. I really enjoyed the (par 4)2nd and the (par 3)3rd was on the button! The members out on the course were really welcoming and friendly. The pace of play was fine and I really don't have anything negative to write. A great day had by all. I'll be back for sure.

Tough course in the wind, if your not straight, you'll meet and greet a few of the trees and shrubs that line the course. Was looking good when I played last week, greens were a little dry, but were getting sorted out. A bit a nightmare to navigate between some tee locations though for the first and even second timers

My current home course. Very fun and enjoyable, worth the fees for certain holes, especially the 2nd and 16th.

Relatively hilly, most shots will be on a slope of some sort

a very nice course. need to be straight here. 6 par 3’s. very short course although there is a really tough run from 7 through to 10 7 – 400m par 4 8 – 180m uphill par 3 9 – 400m downhill par 4 10 – 400m uphill par 4

course is fairly easy, a bit too hilly for most. you will get alot of sidehill lies. you will need to play alot of different shots on this course.

Merewether GC is actually closer to inner Newcastle city than its namesake. Situated in the heart of the south eastern inner city suburbs this course is in excellent condition and presents challenges to golfers of all levels of ability.

The first thing you notice is that it is out in 8 and back in ten, this dates back many decades to when the clubhouse used to be in another location.

There are a number of signature holes such as the short dog leg par 4 2nd which requires an accurate tee shot to set up your shot to the green over a dam. The green is wide but shallow and is protected at the back by a bunker. If you overshoot you can have a perilous shot back to the green.

The long par 4 10th (index 1) which requires 2 long straight shots to make the green the second of which is all carry. The job isnít finished there as the green is a tough putting challenge with some savage breaks.

The par 4 15th is also a tester with a nasty bunker or steep slope at the front of the green for those that go for it and come up short (if youíre not confident it is often better to lay up as it is very difficult to chip close to the pin).

The par 3 8th is also a great challenge 187m all uphill OOB on the right, water on the left and bunkers front left and right.

All in all it is a course in excellent condition with trees, water, some narrow fairways, some uneven fairways and some scoring opportunities. You can have a great round or you can have a ìcharacter buildingî round but youíll definitely come back.
