Situated on the southern edge of town, Grafton’s 6019m par 72 course is one of the more undulating you’ll play in the Northern Rivers. Throughout your round, there are constant elevation changes, shapely bunkers and the course is bordered on three sides by quiet farm paddocks. Highlights on the front include the 149m par 3 6th with an elevated tee and trouble long and left of the large green with a severe slope dropping away from the putting surface and the 369m par 4 7th with a narrow chute to tee off through toward a right bending fairway and an uphill approach. Holes of note on the back include the longest par 4, the 391m 15th with a large green down the bottom of the hill; the toughest hole, the right dogleg 375m 16th with water at the corner and the scenic par 3 17th with the tee tucked up in the bush as well as bunkers and a stream punishing a missed green. The layout itself at Grafton is the real feature with such differing holes, a peaceful setting and a relaxing clubhouse verandah to enjoy a beer and the view after your round. $35 is good value and well worth a visit on your travels through northern NSW.
A very hilly course, but in good condition. The fairways and
greens were excellent and the front nine was very attractive. The
start of the back nine (10, 11 & 12) are poor golf holes, but
the rest of the back nine is good. The 11th ,in particular, had
severe side slopes so there is no way to keep your ball in the
middle. Green fees of $24 made it a reasonably priced course. We
walked it OK, but it is probably a cart course unless you are
fit. The clubhouse was great, with good food and a great vista
over a number of holes.
This course only needs more water to be pretty good, there are
many interesting holes. However, the fairways suffer through
prolonged droughts with preferred lies common but the greens are
good (though inconsistent as they’re a mixture of grasses
on each nine). The club is friendly and the restaurant excellent.
A pleasant bush course that although quite dry, is still in very
playable condition. The day was fine and mild and the reception
in the pro shop was much more than usually exepected as a social
visitor, so off to a good start before even hitting a ball! At
$24 for a round it’s what I’d expect to pay for a
country town course.
The course plays 5877m for a par of 36-35=71 (ACR 70). The 10th
used to be a par 4 but has been shortened to a 150m par 3 as it
parallels a road and apparently too many stray balls were finding
their way over the fence. At least the room is still there to
move the tee back to a par 4 design in a few years when the trees
bordering the course have grown a little taller and thickened out
No real standout holes or wow factor about the course just
standard grassed fairways, greens and surrounds and enough
interest in the design to enjoy the round. Plenty of kangaroos
lazing about too.
Make sure that if you intend to play golf in Grafton that you get
this course (in south Grafton) not the so-called
‘course’ located in the racetrack in the north of the
An interesting course that seems to be getting it's share of
renovations with new greens and tees on some holes in recent
times. The course wanders up and down and through established
gums, which shelter the course's population of lazy roos.
A good collection of par 5s which can be attacked by the longer
Certainly worth a game.
Grafton is a well established course, offering many challenges
for the pro's to the hackers. Not too much water to concern
oneself about, but a few strategically placed bunkers, tree lined
fairways & some out of bounds can cause havoc to those who
stray. Has some hilly sections, but certainly can be walked.
Clubhouse quite inviting with cold beer on tap, pokie area &
snooker table. Restaurant open thru the evenings. Big verandah
area overlooking the course to sit back & reflect on an
enjoyable round of golf.
