I reviewed this course a few years ago and liked it then. Today after playing in the Tuesday comp I would have to say that my like has turned to love. The soft undulating couch fairways are in near perfect condition and although the greens were a bit slow they likewise were in top nick. You couldn't say any hole was easy and the rough will gobble up any stray ball. There are three long par threes probably the longest I have ever played, which leave landing the greens very hard. The par fives also require three good shots to reach the green. I will be back to play again without a shadow of a doubt.

This golf course is an old fashioned, good players course, as oppossed to many of the "open" resort style courses we find today. Hit the Driver in play and you will be rewarded, if not, have a calculator on hand. Excellent greens, sand based fairways and level tees. Only critisism is the 9th hole, at over 200 meters in length with a green which blends into the fairway and provides no target, the hole as is makes for a good practice fairway, re design of this hole will complete a very tough and challenging golf experience

Man this place is a GEM!!!!!! I was plesantly suprised when i played this course. like some people have posted earlier, i was quite skeptical about the course when we began the drive in there(along a secluded dirt road that looks like it leads to the local dump) But once i was on the first tee and got underway i found a magical golf course, no holes the same, very nice undulating fairways without being too hilly, the greens have some interesting complexes also, the course is quite narrow, BE AWARE! if you dont hit it straight, u are going to need plenty of balls! The course is lined by think tea tree, and dense scrub. but if you keep it in the fairways u will enjoy your round of golf! my only downside of playing this course was that the greens had been recently cored!!but this only makes me want to come back more to play the greens in their true state as i think they would be quite slick! i will close by saying this...... I live and play the majority of my golf in sydney. and there isnt many course in my opinion that even come close to this course!!!! it is a must play even if it is slightly out of the way!

Wow what a great course. Carved out of thick, almost jungle like bush this course is aesthetically awesome. Saw some great fauna and flora. The course itself is tightly carved through the bush and dangerous for erratic drivers. A great mix of par 4's, but the course was made for me by the 4 great par 5's. All where magnificent. The greens were great, quick and true. Fairway's where nice also. Another great thing is the way you can rarely see another hole while playing. The clubhouse however is actually just made of weatherboard and the proshop is built in, and about 5 Meters squared (seriously). So really just a top course, much preferred to Forster or Tallwoods.

Great lay out, a true test of golf if ever I have seen one, much better that Forster itself or neraby Tallwoods. The facilities are poor to say the least and in the dirt road in you are wondering what lays ahead, but its a suprise, a truely great track.

Played this course two days ago. A previous reviewer said to get a cart. I will have to disagree, as it is one of the easiest courses to walk that I have played. I believes the rough has been thinned over the years. If so I would hate to have seen it prior to thinning. You need to keep your ball on the fairways or you will spend ages looking for your ball. There is not a huge amount of variety on this course, no water hazards and few bunkers. The fairways (soft under foot) and greens were in excellent condition and I enjoyed my game although I am still cursing the rough. I won't hesitate playing there again.
